I’ve wanted to host an IG meetup forever, so here it is!
Sunday, February 12th, 2017
Arts District, DTLA
**Update: I’m super excited to be partnering with one of my favorite tools for this meet up: JPEGmini! It’s a computer app that decreases your photo’s giant file size without decreasing resolution or quality. WHUT. I’ll have discount codes for everyone that shows up! WHUTTTT??
WHAT IS AN INSTAGRAM MEETUP?
An Instagram meetup is a group of photogs (or photo enthusiasts) getting together to casually shoot, explore a cool area, exchange tips, and hang! You’re especially encouraged to take and trade photos of each other- who doesn’t need some good profile pic material?! Then post your favorites on IG with the hashtag #IGMeetDTLA, so we can all check them out.
DO I HAVE TO BE A PRO PHOTOG / BRING A “REAL” CAMERA?
Heck no! No experienced required. Bring whatever camera you have. Bring your phone!
WHERE TO MEET?
Inside the brand new Arts District Park on the SW corner of 5th & Hewitt (across from Urth Caffé). We’ll meet there at 3:30, and I’m happy to chat/answer photography questions! From there we’ll split off, walk around and shoot.
WHERE TO END?
At sundown (or whenever you’re done shooting!), we’ll regroup at Everson Royce Bar on the SW corner of 7th & Mateo, to hang out and get some dranks!
Make sure to check traffic conditions on your route to the meet up and plan accordingly- it’s on Grammy day! There is tons of street parking in the section of DTLA that is the Arts District, and much of it is free. However, it’s a popular spot on the weekends, so give yourself some time. Just make sure to read all signs carefully!
See you there! XOXO,
