Lake Merritt Night Shoot


We will all meet at the parking area under the Highway 580 overpass near the Grand Lake Theater. From there we will walk the Lake together (safety in numbers!) 

The past week or so it has been starting to get dark at around 5:00pm and noticeably dark by 5:30 - 5:45pm. I suggest we meet up at 5:00pm and start taking shots at 5:30pm.

    Now up to 5 people. If you can see the Grand Lake Marquee look towards 580 and you'll see us - parking is under the highway

  • Daniel E.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight. I, too, am a bit confused on exactly where we will meet. I will try and find the parking lot under the 580, however is there something specific as to where we will gather before we head to the lake? An address or something recognizable?

    January 4, 2014

    • Versie A.

      Hi Daniel we will start at the far east side closet to 580. You just need to look for us carrying our tripods and cameras

      January 4, 2014

    • Calvin Rouse I.

      Running late aboit 10 min. I'll catch up if possible. [masked]

    this is going to be my first time i'm sure i will learn from you

    Versie,

    I am little concerned about confusion over where to meet up. I live near Lake Merritt and I have no idea what is the Ferry Landing. The 880 Freeway is not very near Lake Merritt. Lake Merritt has two floating fountains. Lake Merritt covers a large space and has multiple shooting opportunities, maybe requiring parking twice. Some of the best views are from within the park, though it probably closes at dark. Is there a restaurant, store or similar place with a parking lot you want to identify. (Lake Merritt Bakery?)

    The largest parking area I know of is under the Highway 580 overpass near the Grand Lake Theater but that is not near the Catholic Church pictured above, for example. We could even meet up there and then caravan to other stopping points?

      Hi Paul, my mistakes I said the water fall in the photo was located near 880, I meant 580. I also meant Ferry Land the small child amusement park located near the Lake. Your correct there is parking under the Highway 580 overpass near the Grand Lake Theater.

      hello, i also live near lake merritt and i am also confused as where we do need to meet. why not simply gather at the specified time accross the church. there is a parking everywhere along lakeshore drive.

    Sorry. I wanted to go but caught flue. So I have to pass this time. Looking forward to see you all in the near future.

    Hi everyone I have moved the start time up to 5:30pm. The past week or so it has been starting to get dark at around 5:00pm and noticeably dark by 5:30 - 5:45pm.

    I'm a little confused about the meeting point... is it at the fountain across the street from the tennis courts and Merritt Bakery/Lucky? I don't see a photo that would correspond with the address listed.

    December 28, 2013

    • Versie A.

      It's at the East side of the Lake on the side closer to the 880 freeway

      December 29, 2013

    • Versie A.

      Correction near 580, not 880

      December 30, 2013

    This will be my first event. Hope nothing comes up which prevents me from attending.
