Via the NYC Social Flickr group, photographers have the opportunity to meet people with the same interest in photography. It also gives you the opportunity to meet people who actually post on Flickr. This is the second one I've been too and like the first, it was a lot of fun. This is the photo we took in the Really Small vestibule at Nyonya, a really good Malaysian restaurant on Grand Street. Many is the time I've eaten there and I highly recommend it. A few of us went there after meeting at the Hey Hot Shot reception.
In this meet up, we went to the Jen Bekman gallery Wednesday night. Lots of great photo's displayed, interesting people; in short, It was a lot of fun. I got wind of it via the NYC Social Flickr group, but it's been advertised via word of mouth all over the place.
The "Hey Hot Shot" competition is a great idea by Jen Bekman. It gives interested photographers a chance to submit their work, have it reviewed by professionals and, if selected by the panel, displayed. I think it's a great idea and I hope for it's a continued success.
Music I'm listening to now:
