At night, the city is painted with a seemingly random assortment of lights, transforming it into a sea of new and exciting photographic opportunities. The city lights cast unique shadows and influence the color and mood of the streets, alleys, buildings, and structures. This “change of scenery,” coupled with the low-light will encourage you to slow down and think more about what you are photographing and ultimately result in the creation of better images!
5:30 - 6:25 *OPTIONAL* coffee/dinner/social time at the North Market with Ua and other members. If you are planning on joining us, please let me know in the comments below.
Note: You are allowed to take photographs in the market as long as you are respectful of the patrons and vendors. Tripods are not permitted inside the market during this time of day because of the amount of foot traffic.
6:30 - 8:30 We'll walk from the North Market to N. High St., from there we'll head South on N. High St. towards the Columbus Commons.
The market has a parking lot or you can find street parking all around the market. I would suggest using the parking lot so you don't have to worry about your meter running out of time.
Rain or shine - we are going to make photographs!
Tips for success:
• Bring a tripod and use it
• Use remote trigger or set your camera to 10sec timer
• Use mirror lockup feature on camera
• Remove your UV filter
• Dress in layers, wear gloves and a hat
• Come with ideas
Reflections give you the opportunity to juxtapose different subject matter in one photograph. Look for reflections in highly reflective surfaces like puddles and glass as you are exploring the city at night.
I'm looking forward to going out and taking photographs with you! Please let me know if you have any questions.
Note: This is not an instructional photo-walk. Our goal is to make photographs together, not to teach photography. Questions are fine and learning from one another is important, lets just make sure we direct our focus on making images.
