The Banks of Cincinnati Evening Photo Walk - Second Session

The Promised Second Session for Those on Waiting List & Repeat Photographers (date is firm)

For those who didn't get to do the 8/27 meetup here is your chance!  Get your tripod out and do a night time photo walk along the river banks of downtown Cincinnati at the new hot spot called appropriately "The Banks." Our focus will be on catching the Ohio River, Roebling Bridge, the colorful neon lights and fountains of the Banks, the new 45-acre Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront park on Mehring Way, and other interesting parts of the area. Reds baseball will be over and it will be cooler.  Here are several photos to whet your appetite (the area is photographic amazing):

Meet us at 7:30 pm just outside the front of the Moerlein Lager House restaurant on the plaza to start our photo walk. 

I have saved a map of the things you will want to shoot, uploaded in the More/Files area with this name

    Thanks Fred for organizing this event and providing tips. Actually, if the fountains were on, they may have been a distraction. There were many other cool things to photograph. This was my first meetup and I learned a lot about night photography in the city.

    Had a good time last night & got a couple of shots I am really happy with (will upload later). This is a nice area with a lot of good views.

    My compliments to Fred for doing a great job organizing this. The maps were especially helpful.

    There's a lot more to the Banks than just the fountains. I really enjoyed what was probably my first night time photo shoot. Lots to learn, but fun.

    Since I knew I couldn't attend this event, I went last Friday night to shoot the park, then the Reds post-game fireworks. Some of my photos are at http://www.flickr.com/photos/lundyd/sets/72157636066876825/

    It was still fun, Fred! Thanks for organizing!

    Alas the city of Cincinnati decided to turn off the water to the fountains starting last night or tonight. The lights were on some of them but the water was .... not. However, I challenged those who showed to look for the harder more intimate shot and not the easy fountain shots (but secretly we all wanted the running water and fountains). Let's see those photos!

    Something has come up and I won't get this chance. Hoping it comes around again. AND, hoping all of you have great fun.

    Came down with an irksome cold yesterday, so won't be venturing out tonight. I'm sure it'll be a good time, but I'll have to go another day.

      Looks like you removed your RSVP, thanks

    I've changed my RSVP to no. You guys have fun - I will have to do this another time with y'all :)

    Probably 98th on the list, but..."Anticipation is half the fun."

    Glad a spot opened up. I hope the weather is nice for us.

  • Dave L.

    Phooey! Our plans changed and I won't be able to make it. Guess I'll just have to go on my own some time. I've changed my RSVP.

    Wow, that filled up fast. This is during the week that the OVCC group is going to Acadia, so I would not have been able to attend. :-( I did go shooting down there with a friend last summer, so I do have some images of the fountains, but the park was not quite complete. Very cool wide-angle shot, Fred.

      (shhhh) secret - people can go down there anytime they want!

    Wow, I can't believe there is a waiting list for the 2nd trip! Any chance of another opportunity?

      Well, I guess by adding an additional guest to my RSVP has put me on the waiting list.

      August 29, 2013

    • Fred H.

      Don't worry, about 25-30% usually drop out, you are ok

    I can no longer attend, so I've removed my RSVP.

  • Dave L.

    Thanks for doing this again, Fred. This date isn't great for me, but it's better than last night was at least I don't have two other events at the same time.
