HOLIDAY LIGHTS TOUR of 5th AVENUE: SATURDAY, 12/07/13, 4:30PM!

PWCC's Susan Sigrist will be leading a Holiday Lights tour of 5th Avenue on Saturday Dec 7 at 4:30 PM. All the major department stores will be competing for our attention as well as Rockefeller Center's Xmas tree!. We'll meet at the Fountain by 5th Ave. & 58th (opposite the "Plaza Hotel") and slowly make our way down 5th Avenue, shooting windows and shoppers. It's not advisable to bring tripods but monopods are fine. It would be great if you have a fast lens for the night scenes. You will also probably have to use higher ISO's to be able to stop the lens down and use a decent holdable shutter speed. We can decide to meetup later and grab a bite to eat. There are always great shots to be taken. Hope to see you there, Ed.

RSVP or by emailing Susan <[masked]>

    A very good turn out and friendly people- as expected, 5th Avenue was very crowded with tourists, etc

    It was a great turnout as we fought the cold and Saturday evening crowds but the downloaded images look wonderful.

    Hi all! Be sure to bundle up as it's going to be cold tonight. Tour should take about an hour and a half or so. If you want to get together for a bit, speak up, I'm open to suggestions. Call me Cell:[masked]

    Hi Daisy & all! Meetup @ 4:30PM in park, front of Plaza Hotel, 58th St & 5th Ave. Start tour around 4:45PM. My Cell[masked] for this event 3:30-7PM. We'll be in small groups of 4 or so for safety, for your own pace and possible detours and to avoid blocking windows for others. Hightlights include Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany, Harry Winston, Saks, Tree & Rockefeller Center, Lord and Taylors and Macys in Herald Square. Detours include sides streets at 57 St (a little bit beyond Berfdorfs); various hotels, (St Regis - 55th St); 44th St & 5th Ave, look left to Grand Central Station windows (and interiors!) and Chrysler Building overlooking GCS, 42nd St; check out shopping areas in Grand Central Sta and Bryant Park (nice tree and skating rink.)

    Plenty to see and shoot! Shoot alot, use delete key later! Use higher ISO such as 400 or 800 as necessary. The windows are mostly well lit! Use your flash as required for different effects!

    Have a great time! Ed and Pat
