Could do with arranging some sort of photoshoot day? I could learn a thing or two :cool:

Not sure MK fits the bill then: after the concrete cows and Buddhist Temple/Peace Pagoda at Willen Lake you're left with concrete and glass from what I remember :lol: tho' am happy to be put straight on that.

I've been living in Manchester for over 5 years and I still discover places that I haven't been or scenes worth capturing!

I'm always up for a trip within reasonable distance to meet fellow shooters :D

Im not a million miles away, tbh it depends on what you want to take photo's of ?
some dont want to shoot sport some dont want to shoot nature etc etc etc
but there are always things to keep you going

Have you tried the canal yet, Ed? That has to be worth some experimentation.

Another option is long exposure night shots with light trails - we've been discussing those in Talk About Photography. You will need a tripod.

There's some nice parkland around the city, which is always photogenic.


They're just three quick ideas from the top of my head.

Maybe an MK meet is on; I'd certainly come along and bring my kit if I was well enough on the day.

Has anyone got any thoughts on places to meet, eat/drink and shoot?

Hmmmm you have Whipsnade Zoo and Woburn for animals, Silverstone for Motorsport, a bit further away and later in the year, Shuttlworth Collection for vintage WW1 and 2 planes. Just a few of many ideas ! ;)

I'm from Milton Keynes just found this thread through the search facility.

I would agree the canal is a good place to shoot - was down there on Saturday taking some pictures for the Milton Keynes Flickrites group competition on Flickr.

Have a look here (http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=640683), might be a little further South but there is always meets being arranged.

Hi guys, just joined this forum and spotted this thread. I live in Heath and Reach (just south of MK down the A5) and am also a member of the TIPF group, there's a few bods in the Milton Keynes area in that too. Quite by coincidence the Leighton Buzzard Photographic Club is hitting MK tonight for a loose "photo walk" and pub in the Theatre area @ 9ish. I was wondering whether meeting up in MK or maybe just hitting it at a certain time might be an interesting activity - midsummer is coming up, how about documenting Midsummer Boulevard for the (longest) day? Interesting project do you think?
Regards,
Dave.
