Treasure Island Night shoot

  • Mar 16, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come join us for a night of nightscape photography in the gem of the Bay, Treasure Island. We will have a lot of opportunities to take amazing images of the Bay Bridge and city skylines. There will be a full moon and sunset will be at 7:18 pm with moonrise at 7:39 pm. The time in between is referred to as the golden hour. If you arrive by 6:30 pm, we will go over some basics of night photography then proceed with the shoot itself.

What to bring:
DSLR - required
tripod - highly recommended
remote/shutter release - recommended
extra memory cards/battery
layers of warm clothing - highly recommended

Parking - there is plentiful parking in Treasure Island, I will send an email to attendees on the exact location.

RSVPs will open on Valentine's Day, February 14.

    Thanks to Eric for organizing and for everyone for attending! Some great photos being posted in the gallery!

    It was a lot of fun, though I wish I could have stayed long enough to go to the top of the island.

      Thanks Nathan and Paul. We might do this again in the future so we can get some shots at the top.

    Thanks Eric - that was a great opportunity to get out and practice some night shots. Unfortunately I had to leave before the trip up the hill, but it looks like it went well.

    Echoing Lan - I learned so much and it was great fun to find the hidden, windy streets of Treasure Island. Still to download but will share a couple to the group when I do. Thanks for all of your work in getting this together Eric!

  • Robert

    Anyone in East Bay / Oakland want to carpool? I'd like to try and shoot the bridge suspension if someone is willing to drive.
