December means the holidays are here and so are local holiday light shows. Downtown Rochester goes all out with The Big, Bright Light Show. Opening night this year is Monday December 2nd. Join the merchants of downtown Rochester when they offer their customers Lagniappe (Creole for “a little something extra”) in appreciation for their support throughout the year! There will be a Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and reindeer, as well as free carriage rides downtown. This is the eighth year for this tradition and should be bigger and brighter than ever as more than 1.5 million lights adorn the buildings along Main Street in Downtown Rochester. I am planning on exploring and shooting throughout the evening. The sun sets at about 5:00 PM. Twilight and the Blue Hour are great times to shoot city scenes...We can shoot 'till 9:00 or so. DON'T WORRY IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT BY 6:00 ...SHOW UP WHEN YOU CAN and you can catch up with us...THEY TURN THE LIGHTS ON AT 7:00 PM. I'll email all registrants my cell phone number...If anyone's interested we can grab a bite to eat afterwards. Dress warmly...I'll be happy to assist with camera settings etc as necessary...All skill levels are welcome!
