This past Saturday we had a small but really nice meetup at the Smithsonian’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum. It was small because the museum put a strict limit of 15 photographers on our group. But the bonus was that we were able to shoot for an hour before the general public admission and we got to use tripods, which are usually forbidden.
As expected the hour really flew by (no pun intended), I know none of us were able to fully explore everything on display. I think most of us had a couple favorites we tried to work. I suspect the staff at the Smithsonian was pleased at our good behavior and hopefully we can setup another meetup in the future.
