Walk #3: Nob Hill

Changing things up! The afternoon timing will allow us to get some nice golden hour lighting, different from the direct noon sunlight we've been getting the last 2 meetups.

We'll be winding in between Leavenworth, Clay, Powell, and Pine St.

    I noticed everyone had a different camera. I'd be interested in seeing the photos :)

      Hey, I wanted to post photos there, but under a new name specifically for the group. I remember that you suggested using a different web browser, because flicker kept redirecting me to my existing account. That didn't work for some reason, so I'll be posting here on Meetup instead. :)

    Random question: Do you know any good fountains in SF where you can get really close to the water without getting wet? I went back to this one on Sansome at Bush but there was no water.

      St. Francis Wood fountains are still running (at least the lower one, but probably the upper as well). Both are on St. Francis Blvd (lower at Santa Ana, upper at San Anselmo) http://foundsf.org/in...­

    I uploaded the pictures from my Lytro Illum. It's the new camera that allow you to change focus after taking the picture.
    Go to https://pictures.lytro.com/komei/pictures/855944 and click on the PLAY button at the bottom of the page. It will play the slideshow while shifting focus and perspective.

      Kristina, I got the $100 pre-order discount and the $300 loyalty discount for being an owner of the previous Lytro model :)

      Komei, you are simply on the "cutting edge" of technology! Bravo! I'm afraid technology is leaving me in the dust!

    Nice leisurely walk through the little corners & alleys of Nob Hill with a very friendly group of walkers & photographers of all skill levels

  • Elaine

    Very different walk compared to #2, more like a leisurely walk in the city with a few dead ends. Hi-light, went inside Grace cathedral for the first time

  • Angelo

    Another nice photo walk, already looking forward to the next one, thank you Chloe :-)

    Hey all, I'm running late as I tried to leave at the same time the ball game is over. Will update with ETA once my Uber is here.

    September 14

    I have to bow out, too. Feeling a bit under the weather. Have a great walk!!

    • Chloe F.

      Hope you feel better! See you next time :)

  • Fred

    I have to bow out from this 3rd walk. I have to prepare for a busy Mon at work. I'll hopefully catch the next one.

    Is anyone coming from the Peninsula or South Bay? I'd be interested in carpooling with someone. I live in Sunnyvale.

    Just to confirm, we are really meeting this Sunday at the North west corner of California and Leavenworth, correct? Reason I ask is because the map is linking to a different location a few blocks away.

    September 10

    • Chloe F.

      Yes, there should be a Laundromat on that corner.

    Someone suggested to share this question here...
    Just wondering what would be recommended for beginners.
    Besides the obvious learn by doing (I'm getting a used Nikon DSLR), books? Videos? Classes?
    So far the best book I found through Amazon and goodreads.com was this one:
    Tony Northrup's DSLR Book: How to Create Stunning Digital Photography
    Any other ideas?

    August 24, 2014

    • Kristina S.

      Angelo, I'm going to recommend two books by Bryan Peterson: "Learning to See Creatively." and "Understanding Exposure." They are both excellent books for beginning photographers. Also, the series of Digital Photography books by Scott Kelby.

      1 · September 9

    • Kristina S.

      Oh, and honestly, the "Digital SLR Photography Book for Dummies" is chock full of really good information!

      1 · September 9

  • Kristina S.

    Really sorry not to be able to join the group for this one. I know there will be some stunning photo ops, and I look forward to what will be posted from this outing!

    I might be able to make this one. I am coming from the south bay. What would be best, cal train or bart?

    September 9

    • Chloe F.

      Bart might be faster and will drop you off farther north than the Caltrain (closer to the starting point of the hike)

      September 9

  • Lucy

    I am new to the group. How many miles we will be covering in this 3 hour hike?

    August 22, 2014

    • Chloe F.

      I roughly mapped it out on Google Maps (the book doesn't say how many miles) and it's 2 miles.

    Sorry to miss this one. :( I'll be traveling. See you all in October!

  • Maria C.

    Yay for doing something later in the day! I should be able to make this one! :)
