I love to shoot at night! I'd love to MeetUp with others who appreciate the interesting challenges and rewards of night photography one evening downtown / in the market. A fast lens and / or a tripod is suggested. If you have never shot at night its a fun opportunity, if you have we'd love to share in your experiences and knowledge. Perhaps we could grab a Beavertail while we're at it :-)
For this MeetUp I have a few "spots" in mind in and around the market that would be fun to shoot and explore but before we all arrive I'd love to hear your suggestions.
Keep in mind that "night photography" doesn't mean one just landscape, skylines, or painting with light. Its an opportunity to explore all kinds of photography from candid "people" shots, street scenes, traffic shots, you name it.
Here are a few of my suggestions for shooting spots
- Market Square
- Clarendon Crt (courtyard lane between George & York)
- Major's Hill Park
- Parliament Hill (the light show has potential for some very interesting shooting)
- Behind Parliament Building toward Gatineau / National Gallery
- Wellington and Rideau Street (great traffic / people)
That is basically the "Route" I have in mind. This is certainly not set in stone and I'd like to hear from all of those whove RSVP'd on a suggestion or two or feedback on this plan.
