Earlier this month we partnered with Bedford Camera to host an Instameet in OKC’s Paseo Arts District. During an Instameet, photographers take pictures together at the same location and then share their photos on Instagram and other social media. Anybody who likes to take pictures is welcome. We had people shooting with phones, high-end DSLRs and even film cameras (I was part of the film club).

Director of photography Doug Hoke, staffer Bryan Terry, digital guru Tiffany Gibson and I attended for NewsOK and The Oklahoman. We had more than two dozen other photographers participate and share their pictures. Bedford Camera brought Sony cameras along with other equipment to try out and gave a $100 gift card to the best photo taken at the event as chosen by Doug Hoke.

I think I spent more time talking to other photographers than I did taking pictures. I hope we can have another gathering like this in the spring.

Below are some of the photos taken by Doug, Bryan and myself. Also, check out the photos taken by the other participants when you have a chance.
