    Hi Group - I'm Steve Ashe. I live in North Palm Beach, dig photography and am coming to Disney next week 12/5 - 12/8. I met another group member (Justin) a few weeks ago and he mentioned Pixelmania. Sounds like a blast!!! I'm in for a few days.

    Would love to hear suggestion(s) on which lenses to bring. Thinking Sony A7R2 with 28mm / 2 and Rokinon 14 mm lens. Maybe my 70-200 mm as well. Yes.

    Welcome Steve! Sound like the 3 lenses you have hit a good range. I myself am bringing a 50mm/1.4 and 12-24mm with a 18-270mm to round it out. I also rented a 20mm/1.8 since I use a 1.5 crop body and I am curious what the wider look will be on some of the dark rides. Looking forward to meeting you next week!

    Welcome Steve! I think we have a couple folks who shoot with or have shot with that body. @gary @zackiedawg any Lens recommendations for Steve?

    Hey Steve - glad you found your way to the site! Always nice to shoot with you out in the wetlands, so it will be nice to have you along with our Disney group too.

    I think the 3 lenses you mention would all be good to bring - you likely won't need the 70-200mm except at Animal Kingdom, but it's very useful there. You've got a wide and a standard, so that should do well. If you have any kind of 'kit' walkaround zoom, might be useful to have as well.

    Due to some unforeseen issues with the app company we used last year, we aren't able to get a custom app in place for this year. Instead, we're going to use the messaging app, GroupMe. While lacking some of the features of last year's app, GroupMe provides a chat function and a calendar. Please download the app and join the Pixelmania Group. After you've downloaded the app and have created a user account, please use the following link to join the Pixelmania group: https://groupme.com/join_group/2930609/Z8e2jP

    If you have any trouble, we can add people to the group individually.

    I am new, but I love photography and Disney! My name is Susan. I hope I get to chat with some of you. I am local, so my work schedule will dictate when I can meet up during Pixelmania.
  12. Welcome Susan!
    The great thing about connecting to the Pixelmania event is that you can come and go as you please. There will be people coming with their families. Families always love "waiting" for the photographer to finish getting shots so they actively encourage the camera bug to leave them alone and join our group.

    If you have a family like mine they completely give up trying to hang with me and they just let me do my photography thing.

    We look forward to having you join us. Be sure to download the GROUPME phone app and join our Pixelmania group. That way we can communicate back and forth and provide information as to our whereabouts. You can send us messages and ask us questions as well
