It's a Moon Shot Full Moon This Week!

Let's meet for an hour or two after work in Hillsborough to practice night photography by taking pix of the moon. I am going to limit this meetup to 10 people in order for me to be able to help anyone that wants one on one help with their camera settings or a general use primer for this type of photography.

Let's meet outside at the Weaver St. Market in Downtown Hillsborough and then head to the top of the nearby parking deck to get setup to shoot the moon. After shooting, we head back to the warmth WSM to discuss the evening's shoot and grab a warm drink or some food. I will be happy to answer any questions that may have gone unanswered during the shoot.

It will be a good idea to bring along a camera that has a zoom lens. It doesn't matter if it's a point and shoot or a DSLR. Tripods are preferred, but not necessary. Lesson One of Photography: Make do with what you have. :-) I'll have a couple of spare tripods with me that can be shared.

We will meet rain or shine at Weaver Street Market. Even if it's it's cloudy and the moon doesn't come out, I can let folks know general settings and some basic night photography and low lighting photography tips that everyone should be able to use during the holiday season.

Email me direct should you need more info. I will post my cell phone number to all of those folks that sign up.

    I am sorry but my daughter has spiked a fever in the last hour. Hopefully I can make the next meetup! If you are able to post some notes or pointers to tonight meetup I would be grateful!

    It looks like the next full moon is Dec 28/29, which is also a Friday & Saturday. I'd definitely make myself available either of those days

    Oh no - I read it too quickly thinking it was Hillsborough St. I can't make it either! Gaaa! I so want to figure this out too. I take far better moon shots with my old Canon Powershot S3 than I can with the EOS 7D and it drives me crazy! Please, please, please have another soon! :)

    I just realized Hillsborough is an hour from where I live in Raleigh. Any chance of meetups closer to Raleigh in the future?

    • Lisa W.

      So glad it is here, we have to drive to Raleigh most of the time.

      Hi Jo ~ Of course, we will have meetups in Raleigh too. :-) This one happens to be in Hillsborough because that worked best for me on short notice. Raleigh can be far depending on where you live. I can make to the State campus in about 33 minutes from where we are meeting. On Friday night, there may be traffic on 40 if that's the way folks are coming. It may be better to take the expressway to 85 and get off on the Hillsbilly exit and head toward town.

      I look forward to seeing you at some point. Thanks for your interest.

    Oh, darn! I really want to do this but I have a conflict. Next time, for sure!

  • Jim N.

    Jo, Sylvia and Mariana ~ next time for sure. I am hoping to do one meetup a week for the next few weeks to get the group kick started again.

    Thank you for your continued interest....see y'all soon.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
