FREE NIGHT-SHOOT-AND-TALK WITH HAROLD DAVIS
Come join Harold and photograph the Port of Oakland, one of the busiest ports on the west coast, at night. Photographic subjects include container ships, the inner harbor, the lights of San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge (through and under the Bay Bridge span, tugboats, cranes, reflections in the water, and more.
This free night-shoot-and-talk begins in the early evening and continues through sunset--sunset occurs at 8:10PM--into darkness.
Bring your camera, tripod, and remote release and prepare to shoot the bizarre structures of Port Oakland and talk photography.
We will meet at the Ronald Dellums observation structure. To get there, find Oakland's Middle Harbor Shoreline Park.
Important!! The access gate closes at 8PM. So plan to arrive before then. Cars can leave whenever they like via a one-way gate, but they cannot enter after 8PM.
Once within Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, use the lot adjacent to the gate, and walk to the southwest beside the water to the Ronald Dellums observation structure (about 1/4 of a mile).
Note: There will be no formal instruction. This is not a workshop. Harold is happy to share his experience photographer-to-photographer. Come expecting a great time, but do not expect a workshop.
Rain cancels. Please dress warmly in layers, wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots, and bring a headlamp so you can safely return to your car after dark, water, and a snack or a powerbar.
Here is Middle Harbor Shoreline Park on Google Maps. Please contact me if you need any clarification with directions.
