Downtown Sunset, Long Exposure Lights "Light Trails"!

Ok this hasn't been done in a white so I figured I would toss it up again!

So we will be shooting the sunset from the Landing side so lets meetup behind Hooters on the River.

After we shoot the sunset we will have dinner at Burrito Gallery - 21 E Adams St, Jacksonville, FL 32202 This is a few blocks from the Landing so no need to drive.

While at dinner we will make sure everyone understands how to set up their camera to get the Streaking Lights Shots! Then we will walk around the landing, main street bridge area shooting car lights coming & going to get the Streaking Lights shots!

 

You WILL need a Tri-Pod and if you have a shutter/camera remote that will be helpful.


Hey guys and gals! Frank will be taking over this meetup due to my work schedule changed and I can't make it! Frank will be wearing his JPMG shirt :)

Thanks, Catherine

    When will you have another Downtown sunset, long expouse lights "Light Trails"! I miss this one but everyone is talking about what good time you all had. I think that you should have another soon.

    So the rain amount is only .02 inches. So it shouldn't be that bad if anybody still wants to go. Plus a wet surface is nice for reflection of light and a more well lit/vibrant look.

      You too man. I'm down to go out and shoot when ever just give me a shout.

      February 6, 2014

    • Miles J.

      Id love to join you guys as well. I didn't get the Chance to make it out to this event sadly. I'm still fairly new to photography

    If anyone is up for going back out to shoot some more light trails, let me know. I would like to shoot from the parking structure at the wells fargo building. There probably needs to be more than one or two people...

    I'm probably going to run late. If you all head outside before I get there, where can I find you?

    Hoping to make this happen. I remember seeing pix from the last time this was done. I think it's in one of the galleries for this meetup group. Some of those pics look like they were taken quite a ways from the Landing.

    Question: How much walking is expected? It might be me, my wife might join us (though we'd be late, since she works by Baptist South), and we might have our preschooler son with us (those who were with us at Walter Jones park last year have already met him).

    I know, the focus should be on the process, but we like doing things as a family, and I wouldn't mind absorbing the process and tending to Kiefer while Layla shoots.

    • Frank

      Hey Scott, by all means bring the family. I don't know how much walking we will do but I am expecting to stay around the landing mostly.

      February 2, 2014

    • Scott J. S.

      Cool.

      February 3, 2014

    And of course, how long did most people hang out last time this was done?

    First time attending a meet up. I'm excited! Would my 50mm lens be suitable to this shoot. Still new to photography

    January 27, 2014

    • Akash

      I'd suggest 18-55 also in the bag to get some wider shots.

  • Glenda L P.

    What lens should I use for this?

    January 22, 2014

    • Glenda L P.

      I only have the 18-55MM that came with my camera. I ordered another lens but it won't be here before tomorrow.
