One of our oldest events: I've been taking groups out to Milford's picturesque holiday light display on the green for almost 20 years. People love it! Come out with the group this year to practice your low light shooting and come away with some cool holiday images like the one above of one of the lit trees. Please read the notes below! This meetup is free and will be held weather permitting and is for skill levels of any kind. There should be a couple of us there to help that night with settings or suggestions for images. jess
NOTES and FAQs:
~You need a tripod! A flashlight is helpful. Dress warmly and consider an extra pair of socks. Your feet get cold first.
~If you need help with your tripod meet us at the store at 6:30. We can walk from there to the green's gazebo. Or just meet us at the gazebo at 7pm.
~any digital camera will work. However there are some helpful tips I can pass along:
1. A dslr with a normal type zoom lens is best as exposure compensation can be adjusted in an override mode. You might have to darken your original exposures.
2. Consider setting ISO too. Slow! 100-400. As you are on a tripod you don't need a high shutter speed.
3. Practice using your tripod. Put your quick plate on at home or at the store before going to the gazebo. We've seen plenty of folks struggle with this in the cold and dark over the years.
4. Learn to use either your self timer or remote accessory to trigger your camera.
5. Look at albums from other years for ideas.
