Night Series | San Diego Skyline Photo Workshop

Part of our Night Series, we'll focus our evening on capturing the San Diego city skyline at sunset. Check out the photos from our last workshop!

Join us as we photograph the beautiful San Diego skyline. We'll be shooting from the Coronado Ferry landing directly across the bay, which is the best viewing point of the skyline. This is a unique subject, given the long, panoramic nature of the skyline. As the sun sets it casts a gorgeous warm light on the face of the buildings, even casting interesting reflections in the windows. We'll be shooting well past sunset, enabling us to capture the city lights reflected in the water. You'll be sure to get the frequent streak of light from a plane landing at the airport.

We will be meeting at the Old Ferry Landing Ticket Booth, at the corner of First and Orange, and shooting past sunset. This is when the most magnificent colors appear, but can only be seen by your camera using a long (20-30 second) exposure.

We welcome film or digital but suggest using digital if you are just starting out, preferably with manual shutter and aperture controls. A tripod is required to shoot at sunset, as the exposures can get as long as 30 seconds. We have one spare tripod available to use for $5 (email Nick beforehand).

Required: Tripod and camera with manual shutter control.

Bring flashlights, lens cleaning cloths, tripods, cameras, and a smile.

Email or call us if you have any additional questions or need detail clarifications.
See you soon.

    Nick and Byron - Can I join you guys tonight? I had paid for the meetup on March 2nd for this same location but had to cancel because I was installing an entry door in my house and wasn't going to be done before dark. I'd like to apply the payment for that last meetup to tonight's shoot if possible.
