Shoot the harbour/Christmas lights

  • December 15, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • Clock tower in front of TST Star Ferry

We'll take shots across the harbour to HK island starting as the light starts to fall and being able to retain details in the brand names with a nice balance with the ambient light. If we are lucky we may even get some sunset shots. Then as the light goes we'll take some which are more dramatic with the lights much brighter and giving good reflections on the water.

 

Then either stay where we are to shoot the 8pm light show or go on the top of Ocean Terminal and shoot from there.

 

What to bring?

  • Tripod
  • Remote shutter release
  • Flash etc if you want to do night portraits with the HK lights in the BG
  • ND filter to smoot the water before it's dark enough to do it without
  • ND Grad in case there's a good sunset.

I'd bring a camera and lens(s) as well 

 

If you want to do some handheld street shot afterwards bring a fast prime.

      Hi Tracy, you can join of course and your camera is fine but you will miss having a tripod as really you need to do long exposures so even with hi ISO and image stabilisation you will find it hard

      Thanks Howard. I will probably find it hard regardless anyway cos I'm so new to photography :)

      it has reasonable controls but I really think you will find it hard without a tripod

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
