Silhouette Shoot with Drink and Click(TM) Chicago, June 11

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s that time of the month again, when members of the Drink and Click(TM) Chicago group meet up for a themed photoshoot. This month’s theme is silhouette and what better time and place to do it but on Montrose Point at sunrise, gathering at 4:45 AM to shoot the rising of the sun at 5:15 AM?

We might have been a little bit cranky because of the very early start (some of us have vampire-like lifestyles) but there was another group there, the Art of Chi Instagram group that kept us entertained and provided us with lots of opportunities to shoot their silhouettes.

And of course the usual fishermen who looked at us with perplexed expressions.

The drinking part (which was really just coffee and soda) was at the Golden Pancake House in Uptown.

Historic Landmarks Walk with Drink and Click Chicago

Drink and Click’s theme this month’s (March) is historical landmarks. The Chicago group originally planned to photograph Old St. Patrick’s Church in the West Loop but it was closed last Saturday (March 24), so we moved to the Union Station which is undergoing extensive renovation. Later on, we walked to Marina City and photographed from the 43rd and 46th floors. Although the towers are not officially landmarks, they are historical being both the tallest residential buildings and the tallest reinforced concrete structures in the world when they were completed in 1964.
