Lights…Camera… Downtown Action

Let’s go downtown and try to shoot some light trails! Light trails make the city come alive at night. Many people think it takes a lot of work to get an image of light trails, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. With a tripod and a camera that allows you to play around in manual mode, you’ll be ready to capture some of the most colorful and vivacious images you have ever seen .

Tips:

BRING A TRIPOD!

We will be shooting from the top floor of the Jax Center garage. The entry way is on Bay Street across from the Suntrust Building. The sign outside states it’s for the Jacksonville Landing parking. It’s an hourly garage. I would prefer to drive into the garage and have my car with me that time of night instead of walking and climbing up 9 flights of steps! Plus it’s safety first!

    So I just called & spoke with the property manager of the parking garage, I think her name was Melanie... she said they had problems with people doing photo shoots of cars & girls etc from the roof so the owner banned all photography completely from there.

    Debbie thanks for organizing the meet-up, sorry the Lanier folks were such buttheads...

    my sincerest apologies to everyone and for those who missed us. The security at the garage made us leave and said we needed a preauthorization from the management company to take any photos or video from their garage. I know other groups have shot there before without any problems.

      Yeah that is why there needs to be several of us, in a group :) Not the safest part of town...

      I am not familiar with that area enough to pick an outside spot to meet. That is why I was going to pay the $6 and park on the top floor of the garage. My life and/ or equipment is well worth the money! Safety in numbers.
