Long Exposure - Seascape

  • Aug 10, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Walk-About

Meet on the right side of the Concession Stand at Second Beach.  From there we'll work west along the seawall.  There are several spots between 2nd&3rd beach that would be great to photography, it just depends on the tide.

These locations will provide views of Kits and North Shore and the sunset.  Given Golden Hour starts at 7:27pm, I don't want to wait too long before finding a spot.

Be prepared to get sandy/muddy if you are planning on venturing on to the beach for your photos.  Using filters will allow you to take longer exposures giving the water and/or clouds a blurred effect.  With the timing of the sunset, there is potential to have some rather interesting photos.

Times (will be updated closer to the date)

3:41pm: Slack tide

7:27pm: Golden hour

8:36pm: Sunset

8:51pm: Blue hour

9:35pm: Slack tide

What to Bring

-Camera

-Tripod

-Filters (The stronger the filter, the longer the exposure - message me if you want information on filter types, brands, and local places to purchase)

-remote (especially shooting in bulb mode)

-addl info on what to bring check out http://youtu.be/TVjQw03gUOQ

The Aim


The function of the group is to learn and practice the techniques of photography. For our group, this involves learning photography not only from your guides but also from your group-mates. Another important aspect is getting to know other members of the group. 

Meets

The attendant size of the meets will be kept small, about twenty. This is to keep the meet more intimate, where participants can have the opportunity to get to know all their group-mates and spend time with a guide. 

If you select to attend a meet and then cannot make it, please be courteous to others in the group and change your RSVP status as soon as possible to allow others who might be on the waiting list the chance to participate.

After

What will be appreciated are ratings and, especially, comments to individual meets and the group dynamic as a whole. This is important because it will ultimately add value to our meetings and improve our experience. 

As well, feel comfortable in posting your photographs and advising others; critical appraisal is encouraged.

      Light Painting sounds interesting, let's try it! Shall we meet at the same meeting point on 2nd beach concession around 7:30pm? Shoot in between 2nd & 3rd beach for a while, then walk to the 9 o'clock gun before 9pm. Any ideas /thoughts? I'll park & ride at Coq Station, bus to Stanley Park! Anyone interested?
