Night Photography at the Old Mill


The Old Mill is a cool place for night photography, especially now with the holiday lights up.

Grab your coat, hat, and gloves and meet me at the flag/foot bridge by Anthony's. 

We can walk around as a group or by yourself.

We'll be out for just a couple hours, depending on how cold it is. Dress warm!

Remember to bring your tripod!!

After, post 5 or so of your favorite shots!

    I did not know how much I learned until I was looking at my Night Shots ob my PC.

    I had soo much fun and learning, I went out 2 more times this last week to shoot Night Shots. Take a look at my Facebook page: Stuartsphotomagic at
    https://www.facebook.com/StuartsPhotoMagic

    to see my other night photos on Wall Street in Bend.

    This was a good one for me. Plenty of time to be alone, but in the company of other people with cameras and tripods, you don't feel out of place.

    The Meetup was great; the weather was great; the people were great. the only (minor) issues that came up were:
    1) The temperature was a bit cold at between 20-25 degrees F
    2) Conversations just seemed to stop when the camera shutters started clicking... All in all, this was a great Meetup. Only 1 question remains - When is the Old Mill Night photo Critique? :-)

      Just post some photos and we can comment on them.

      December 20, 2013

    • Robert C.

      I think the intent for the critique on this is that it will be online. Post a few photos in the album for this meetup and those who have time will comment. I have worked a 12 hour day and haven't even looked at my photos from last night. I'll post a few when I have time, if any are worth posting.

    Thanks it was fun. i was only there for about 45 minutes and no time to process last night, so I will share some images this weekend.

    Well, back to the event details. Looks like we have a good group for the night. I think we'll split up in four groups, so we don't look like those tourist groups you see in the big city.
    Thursday's forecast looks to be mostly cloudy and cool. Please dress warm, especially your feet. Standing around, your feet will get cold fast.

    Just joining for 2014, buying a new camera prior to 12/31/13. Question for y'all---I am ready to spend the bucks on a good digital SLR and one lense to start. Haven't researched this in 15 months. What do you guys suggest? Macro nature, wildlife motion, some landscape, could spend about $3000 or more if you convince me. Any suggestions on what's hot? Tend toward Canon but..........
    Once I get this camera I will come play at your meetups.......
    Thanks for any input.

      ooh time-lapse----that would be darned fun! Which Nikon---the D7100??

      December 16, 2013

    • Tom R.

      Robert is completely correct. All good cameras take good pictures in the hands of a reasonably good photographer. In fact - if you spend much more than $1000 on a camera body I think the technical stuff just becomes irrelevant. The choice really depends on what you see yourself doing with the camera. If you are a wedding photographer, work in a studio or just want to take the most nit-pickingly perfect landscape possible - you'll be happiest with a big full-frame Nikon or Canon. If you want to take perfect bird photographs - you need to spend $7000 on a lens for your canon. Alternatively, if you like street photography or travel photography or you want a good camera in your pack when you go hiking - you'll value something small and light - so go look at a mirrorless Olympus or Sony. Or split the difference. Get a Nikon 7100 like Robert and buy some really good lenses for it. So many choices.......

  • Kathy H.

    Thanks so much for the comments so far! Sometimes the amount of new tech stuff is overwhelming and then I don't take action. So hearing what's new on the buzz is helpful. I left out one important feature that is very imp. to me----amount of noise when shutter releases......I love taking pics of wolves and wildlife that can hear something like that for miles. A year and half ago----the Canon was everything I wanted except for the "big" sound it made compared to Nikon. And the Canon was heavy for fibromyalgia hands----so I didn't decide or buy. Now I am back to the drawing board.

    Now it's correct. Dang it only took me 5 attempts.

    Is someone in need of a tripod to borrow? I have a spare, but it is REALLY heavy. I think anyone who owns a DSL or SLR should own a tripod, but if you've not added one to your gear collection yet, I'm wiling to loan it for the evening. Using one for the evening will make it very clear that it's an essential piece of gear - that's why I'm offering the loan.

    There's a lot of sites that can help you with general settings. I've learned a lot by just getting out there and playing with my camera's settings. Kevin had a good site.
    Here's one I found:
    http://www.digitalcameraworld.com/2013/09/15/best-settings-for-night-photography-how-to-shoot-in-a-range-of-situations/
    I'll try to help you out too.

    This is a pretty decent website with lots of good tips for different types of photography: http://digital-photography-school.com/night-photography

    This ought to be a fun meetup; I'll pull out my tripod. Looking forward to shooting night shots at Old Mill.

  • David G.

    Great idea... I love night photography and would love to participate, but will be out of town -- AGAIN!

    Have fun and take some great photos.
