THE OFFICIAL "PHOTO DAY" IDEA THREAD

ok postwhores - (seriously): THIS THREAD IS CONSTRUCTIVE DISCUSSION/IDEAS ONLY!!!

PHOTO DAY:* The day we designate as the day where everyone can show up DOES show up (in full gear) for promo photos to be taken.

There are 214 members.* Only three showed up at the last one. But that was probably because of the less than 12 hours notice.


so please answer the poll and post up your preferences for:

* time of day - morning, vs afternoon or an evening get together

* any venue suggestions?

* all other constructive comments and ideas...


please show your support for motohouston.com - and help this thread serve it's purpose...

all posts in this thread must be:

1. about your ideas/pref for day, date, time of day & location

or

2. constructive

posts not meeting the above criteria will be deleted (in other words - we're serious about doing this - so no bs in here mkay?).* if you have any questions, pls pm me.

Re: THE OFFICIAL "PHOTO DAY" IDEA THREAD

i'll start off...

sunday's usually my slowest day... prefer afternoon shoot (not a morning person)...

would like to see a houston landmark in the background... so maybe shoot by williams tower or the bridge by downtown with the houston skyline in the background... or possibly in the parking lot @ reliant center...

i'm flexible to other days/times tho np...

Re: THE OFFICIAL "PHOTO DAY" IDEA THREAD

I think its a great Idea, and yeh Id like a downtown shot as well, I know of a spot that we used for houston-imports back in 2001 and it worked GREAT.

With my work schedule, I only get weekend days off if I give notice by AT LEAST 3 weeks.

Any time is OK with me..

Back in 2001 I took a picture of my bike in the bridge of Sabine St. and Memorial

kawasaki zr7s 00 bikepics 178390

The sidewalk where the bike is parked is very wide and also not too much traffic at all.

Re: THE OFFICIAL "PHOTO DAY" IDEA THREAD

im up for anything the only problem is that i dont have a set schedule and to be honest i despise morning, my morning doest start till 1pm sometimes :laughing6:, but i think the best thing to do is to have it after 11am and on a weekend so whoever wants to travel to town that lives out of the city can come and not have to deal with all the traffic and all the idiots on the road driving a SUV, i would say make it a night shot but i know no matter what you try you wont be able to get a good picture bc of all of the lighting you have to consider

Heat is also an issue me thinks. Annnnd we don't really see a break in the temps until about 7:00p with sunset at about 8:30p. I was thinking 7pm... that gives us an hour and a half to get a good shot...

I'm thinking we should apply for a permit with the city if we're gonna shoot on the bridge. We'll need a wide lens for sure. What about height - maybe get some scaffolding (sp?) or one better yet rent one of those small motorized platform rental things that can raise you up about 20 feet. We'd also need a set plan ahead of time for positioning the bikes - and probably a megaphone in case we get a REALLY good turnout there. :biggthumpup:

Dayum this sounds hardcore. I think a good way to make some money on this is for ya'll to print some posters out and we could all buy some, plus donate some extra $.

Re: THE OFFICIAL "PHOTO DAY" IDEA THREAD

What about during normal meets? For instance, for those that go to the Hooters (I45 and FM 1960) on Wednesday nights, we can do it there around 6:30 or 7PM when it's not too hot. We can probably get some girls to pose with us too. The we can go inside, eat, and chill. Then we can ride over to the PetSmart where everyone meets up around 9ish anyways.

....just my $.02

sunday evening is looking like is when this is gonna happen...

we're gonna want everybody to show up in full gear too...

chris, we're also gonna need a couple of ice chests with ice, bottled water and gatorade to help keep our peepz cool... right:
