June's full Moon is the largest of the year with the Moon a mere 221,824 miles away (normal Earth-to-Moon distance is 238,600 miles). Let's take advantage of this larger-than-normal Moon and photograph it in a spectacular setting where we can employ all manner of photographic techniques including HDR (high dynamic range), long exposures in low light, shallow depth of field, infinite depth of field, etc. Heck, Steve might even give us a lesson in using off camera flash to light up something in the foreground!
The area around Corn Hill Landing on the Genesee River gives us a multitude of photographic opportunities including the Mary Jemison tour boat, the downtown skyline and the Frederick Douglass-Susan B. Anthony Bridge (locally known as the "Freddy-Sue"). The Moon will rise around 8:30 or a little before giving us a nice combination of sunset and Moonrise (weather permitting, of course).
We'll plan to edit our photos at the next meeting on July 10.
Plan to park in the pay parking lot across from the Public Safety Building. The cost is $5 but well worth it since you can park 25 feet from the ideal shooting location!
