BCC Club Outing- Crow Indian photography shoot — September 9

Sep 09, 2023 3:00 pm

Due to inclement weather, the BCC Club Outing Crow Indian photography shoot was postponed until September 9, 2023.

This is a unique opportunity for camera club members to photograph several Native Americans in traditional dress. The Real Bird family will provide the models ranging in age from young children to teenagers and adults. A few may be mounted on horseback and may cross the river a few times at a gallop for action shots. Tipis will be set up for backdrops or interior shots.

Photographers may use cameras, video equipment, or phones and are free to direct the subjects to pose in both formal or informal positions. Approximately 10-15 minutes will be allotted for each photographer to pose his or her subject. The goal is that everyone has an equal opportunity to take their photos. Hopefully, there will be two to four groups of subjects, so photographers can rotate from one group to another.

Safety Warning for photographing horses:

No Flash allowed!!

This is to safeguard the horses, riders, and photographers. Everyone will be shooting the horse section at the same time.

Fording the river on horseback and/or galloping the horses will happen quickly and will probably only have a few repeats. It is important your settings are in place before action starts.

Like the unmounted models, the horse and rider models can be directed to pose in a variety of activities, although there is no guarantee with horses that the action will unfold exactly as envisioned.

Meet at 3pm at the Custer Battlefield Trading Post & Cafe across from the Big Horn Battlefield. More information on that at our meeting 9/5/2023.

Some members may wish to drive down early and visit the Hardin Museum, which has many interesting outbuildings dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. One can stroll around the grounds without paying admission fees, although entrance to the main museum does require purchasing a ticket. Members deciding to visit the museum would meet at 12 noon at the museum entrance.
