The Full Moon Jams’ unite performing artists and spectators through a love and appreciation of fire art. Encompassing myriad performance styles and tools, fire dancers from the greater Chicago area and Great Lakes share their creative gifts by the shore of Lake Michigan, set to the percussive beats of local musicians, in this unique and free to the public monthly event taking place through Spring and into Fall.
A true photographic spectacle! All details can be found on the Full Moon Jam website: http://www.fullmoonjam.org.
The jam takes place ¼ mile south of the Foster Ave Turf Fields on the lakefront. The jam is NOT! at Foster Ave Beach. it is south of the beach, on the east side of the lakefront trail, in the big field. Approximate address: 5100N & Lake Shore Drive 60640. We will get together where the fire safety training takes place. I will have a camera and a tripod, I will not have a huge helium balloon with "MEETUP" printed on it.
It does not matter what type of camera or lens you have or use as long as you are able to in some way adjust your exposure correctly and set your shutter speed manually. You will need a tripod. Flash is NOT! allowed as it will distract the performers and ruin videos.
There is no rain date. I will check on the Jam group's Facebook page at 5:30 PM to see if the event is still on, or cancelled due to weather or field conditions, and post it here at that time.
