Downtown Photo Walk

Hello Photo Walkers,

For our kick-off meetup, I would like to suggest that we meet by what I call "The Big Giant Head" on the South side of the "Bow Building" at 4:00 PM on Saturday April 5th. It looks like it is going to be fairly sunny on that weekend, and we should be able to get some great lighting effects.

My plan would be to meet at "The Big Giant Head" and simply wander around downtown as a group or possibly split up into smaller groups, and meetup at either a coffee shop or pub that we will decide upon before we go a wandering.

Why 4:00 PM? I had thought about making it earlier in the day, but I know that some people like to shoot under different lighting conditions. I thought that 4:00 would give us a few hours of decent light, and still be not too long of a wait for anyone that might like to hang around to get some night shots.

I do not work downtown, so if anyone has any favorite pubs or coffee shops that you would like to suggest please let me know.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Regards,

Jason

    Since I'm rather an amateur, is it better to have a polarized filter on at this time? I'm still trying to fiddle with white balance on my 60d. Although the filter makes things more vivid which I rather like.

    • Alexandra

      Hello Heinz, a polarizer will give you more colour saturation - deeper blues in the sky. It will also reduce or eliminate glare and reflection on water, so yes, I'd use it. I just put mine on my lens. I also have the 60D, and am using Automatic White Balance just because we may be moving in and out of the sun, and I don't want to be fiddling with it all the time.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
