Critical Mass - Night time photograpy in the city

For photography - the idea is for us to car pool and pick a few spots along the cycle route for night time photography. There are generally a couple of hundred cyclists, so this adds to our safety of photographing in the city at night.

Meet at Kitcheners any time from 6:30. Critical Mass cyclists leave at 7:15pm

Here are photos from our last get together to photograph CM at night:

Critical Mass is an unofficial, unsupported group ride around Jozi at a relaxed pace. Critical Mass is NOT a race.

The CM movement aims to raise awareness about the viability of bicycles as a form of transport; the cyclist's right to share public space safely and the need for cycling infrastructure. Critical Mass Joburg aims to bring more people back into the city. CM is about having fun, in a group, on wheels.

CM makes an impact because it is a group. The group moves slowly and must not be separated. When the mass moves through a traffic light, the mass must stay together, even when the light changes, or it is dangerous. If cars get caught in the mass, allow them space to exit to the right. Always try to keep a lane open to the right of the mass for cars to pass safely by.

    Photographing at night requires one to look at the world from a different perspective. Night photography should not be considered merely as an extension of daytime photography because night light transforms the world into something unfamiliar and strange. In much the same way that moving into the after photographing outdoors with natural light demands a different approach, photographing at night requires many different considerations. Of course, your photographic skills will serve you well, but there are surprises ahead, many new things to learn, and exciting discoveries to be made.
