11.08.2009 17:30 to 22:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Basel
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Munster

Please note:
We changed the plan to see the yearly Rheinschwimmen!
We will meet at the Munster at 17:30 and walk together down to the Rhein and shoot the swimmers!

For those who want to stay longer, don't forget Im Fluss!

Gempen will be scheduled later on...

[Our next Basel Photography Event will take place in Gempen, a beautiful location short outside of Basel with beautiful view over the whole city.
We will meet in front of Migros flower shop in SBB Bahnhof at 18:25. Don't be late, we don't want to miss the train!
TNW tickets are valid for this trip.

When there, we will start with a little exercise from a great book I am reading, with the purpose that you will learn to see what your lens sees. So please don't come in your fancy pants, because I will make you craaaawl...

After that, landscapes of course!

Re: Basel Photography Club

Hi,

it might be worth changing the title so that it says when and where the event is taking place.

Have fun

Martin

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

Do you have the address of the place we're going please Begga?
There's a chance I won't make the train, in which case I'll drive and let TomTom navigate for me

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

zozo... the famous Rhein swim?
Please tell us more, is there some special day ... and what is going on? I thought swimming in Rhein was just daily business over the summer time.

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

Since I will come from Zofingen (Aargau) I have a very basic logistic question! Expected end of the event is 23 p.m. That means that we will be back at Basel SBB Bahnhof at 23 p.m. (and in this case I have a chance to catch the last train to Zofingen) or we will leave Gempen at this time? Just to know if I come by train and meet you at Basel or by car and join you at Gempen ... I am looking forward to meet you for the first time

Hi Laurence.
Yes you are right, we should catch the last bus from Gempen and be at the Bahnhof at 22:50

Here's the link for the Rhein swim:

It's a great event especially when the weather is good and I agree with Zozo that it too would make a good photo event

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

Don't know if it is possible to add pool to this, but want to know if people are more interested in shooting the Rhein swim? Seems like only once in a year opportunity vs. we can always go later to Gempen.
There is also this concert event, "Im Fluss" on the Rhein for those who would want to stay longer for shooting...

Please let me know as soon as you can, those who are attending.

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

Rhin Swim is certainly a special think to see. As you stated, we can always go to Gempen later. I would suggest to make a swimmer shooting tomorrow

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

If this swim is so unique and since I haven't seen it, I would probably prefer this option (and will give me an opportunity to join in case I'm late )

Yeah I'm getting more hot for the Rheinswimmen than Gempen at the moment...

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

Are you meeting in Gempen after all?
We've just moved to Gempen 1 week ago and would love to join the photography club. Very convenient for us! Please let us know when you do come to Gempen and we can meet you.

Re: Basel Photography Club, Landscape in Gempen 11. August

I'd be up for the Rheinschwimmen. As it happens only once a year, it's got my vote. :-) http://www.basel.ch/en/kultur/highli...chwimmen-2.htm

Sounds like we're all going Rhein swimming instead Shirley!
You're of course more than welcome to join us, we usually meet somewhere around Basel, and the next event after this is a night time one;

Basel Photoclub - Evening and/or Long Exposure Shoot

See you tomorrow hopefully
