Garhoud Bridge


There is lots to see from this spot, including buildings, lights, reflections, greenery, and of course, the bridge itself. Be sure to bring along a tripod, since we'll be shooting after dark. More information to follow soon; watch this space, as event details may change.

We can shoot the water, and try and capture water motion blur while capturing the symmetry under the bridge...  

Get your speedlites, we will try shooting low light portraits...  

Remember it will be warm and humid... so wear light clothes...
Also it will be your reponsibility to look pretty or handsome, whatever is applicable to you... :)

Need help finding the location on the day of the event? Watch this video before you call the EPyC hotline [masked]).

      Jahan, you are a crazy bloke...

      People please note, most members had left the place and this dude was doing his thing, till the 4 of us around him had to say 'enough'... and we officially stopped at around 10 30 pm... He should be made a role model, for those you aspire to learn photography, because this gentle man will not give up till he has achieved the image he wants to create...

      He was with me even the day before the event on the same location, trying and testing his gear... I had to drag him out of the location because i was getting late.

      Cheers mate!!! you are amazing

    Feel free to move around and capture images
    Those who need to understand using camera in manual mode... can tag along with me...
    After sunset, we will be working towards shooting portraits...

    July 1, 2013

  • Jason

    Please get your tripods... speedlites, triggers, soft boxes (or any form of light modifiers) etc...

    July 1, 2013

  • Jason

    We were on location today as well...
    Before you get your camera's out, make sure it has reached ambient temperature... to avoid condensation on the lens...

    There are no toilets near the site...
    Hydration is key, so please carry water... the Emarat petrol pump just before Garhoud bridge, while driving towards sharjah... is a good place to buy your refreshements... I will be carrying a icebox, if anyone needs to keep any beverages cool...

    The types of images,
    The structure under the bridge... water... look for symmetry
    Business bay bridge at a distance...
    Creek park across the creek

    After dark, the place is lit by blue lights... and distance street lights, make it an interesting place for low light portrait photography...
