Preakness Celebration Balloon Festival Photowalk

  • May 19, 2011 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

UPDATE (5/12): Due to popular demand, we are opening up TWO more spots to make it a group of 12! Please RSVP if you want to join our photowalk! A separate email with HDR instructions will be sent to those attending as well as the exact meetup location! Remember, RSVP closes on May 18 at 7:30pm...thanks - can't wait to see you!

Hot air balloons will stand up and glow at 8:30pm! This event is free. Grab your tripod and let's practice long exposures together. Sunsets at 8:17pm, so if you want to show up earlier, feel free to do so. We will still expect to meet up at a designated area TBD at 7:30pm. 

View the official website at http://www.BallooningUSA.com/preakness. See important notice about parking location and fee.

    Thanks to everyone who braved the finicky weather! Looks like a few of you were able to get there early enough to enjoy some photo ops. The rest of us showed up just as they were canceling the event due to rain. You guys are all troopers! Can't wait to see your pictures on our event album. If you end up going to the balloon festival on any of the other days this week/end, please feel free to add your pictures here too!

    Hiya Joanne- I'm going to the event. I see your group is full, but maybe we'll bump into each other that evening. I'll be shooting HDR if the weather holds up.

    Paul! Thanks for letting us know you can help show us how to take HDR photos!!

    Now, if anyone has been to the balloon festival before, we're looking for suggestions on the exact designated meetup location on-site. Please post your comments with ideas! Thx!

    Anyone interested in practicing HDR at this event? If so, definitely bring your tripod...if so, we just need a volunteer to help lead that...any takers?
