Friday, September 11,[masked]/11 Memorial Lights - The best Locations In One Night by Luxury Motor Coach PHOTOGRAPH THE 9/11 MEMORIAL LIGHTS FROM THE BEST POSSIBLE GROUND LOCATIONS AND GET THERE IN OUR OWN LUXURY MOTOR COACH!! (There are at least 4 exceptional vantage points in the DUMBO area on the Brooklyn side of the East river. We'll get a chance to explore most, if not all, of them.) We will, of course explore and photograph at “Ground Zero”. What makes this Photo Adventure unique is how we're going to travel to, from, and around the photo locations that we've selected for our photo shoot. We'll all meet at a specified location in northern New Jersey late in the afternoon on Sept. 11th. Our chartered 56 passenger luxury coach will then whisk us off to New York City and be our base. Our first drop off point will be at DUMBO (the Brooklyn side of the East river directly opposite the Freedom Tower and it's Memorial Lights.) We will have time to shoot from several different locations. When we're ready to move on, our Luxury Motor Coach will pick up us and take us within walking distance of Ground Zero where we'll encounter a plethora of new photo ops. Please note: How close we will be able to get to Ground Zero may be somewhat limited by site restrictions and regulations. This is a great way to maximize the number of locations we can visit without any hassle or stress. The best part is that you can always go back the coach if you’re tired or need to warm up. We’ll also be able to leave our extra gear on the coach so you don’t have to schlep a heavy backpack just in case and there will be a restroom on board…how convenient is that. I am quite sure that this Photo Adventure will be both a very emotional experience for us all and a very productive one photographically. At the end of our photo shoot we'll board our luxury motor coast for the trip back to our departure point and our cars. Once we board our bus, everyone will get a gourmet box dinner to eat on the way home. This gourmet box dinner has received rave reviews (5 stars) from past motor coach tour participants. Of course, we'll have bottled water on board. PAYMENT DETAILS: THE COST OF THIS PHOTO ADVENTURE IS $195.00 PER PERSON IF BOOKED AND PAID FOR BY MAY 31ST 2020.

Creating “Stellar” Night Images. Night photography is amazing -- being able to freeze time via star trials and capturing the planets, stars, clouds, milky way, etc. Topics that will be covered include: Gear, Red flashlights, lights for light painting, taking a High ISO test shot, focusing at night (a few different techniques depending upon the circumstances), Exposures under 30 seconds, Long exposures (1-60 minutes), plus star trails and cloud stacks. The program will also include Star Stacking in camera using Live Composite as compared to the more tedious and labor intensive star stacking in Photoshop and other software. We enjoy photography, all aspects, and are excited to share what we know with you to inspire you. "Creativity is contagious, we yearn to pass it on". As photographers, we all need to know about our equipment, our cameras, our aperture, our post-processing, etc -- and logic will certainly take you from point A to point B, but imagination will take you everywhere. We hope to see you at an upcoming photo op, photo class, photo tour, photo workshop, etc.! Lisa Cuchara, PhD, Master Craftsman (PPA), HonNEC, is very passionate about photography and she enjoys both being behind the lens and in the digital darkroom. She loves to photograph nature, but finds many subjects equally intriguing. From birds and flowers to babies and UrBex/HDR, she appreciates the world around her and embraces the challenge of interpreting what her eyes see and her heart feel via her photographs. Lisa says that photography allows her to pay attention to the details, to be mindful, to slow down and appreciate all of the beauty, details and nuances of everyday life.
