Night Shots at the Palace of Fine Arts

Location visible to members


Let's sharpen our Night photography skills at one of the loveliest spots in the City. Come down to the Palace of Fine Arts and take a few shots of this landmark in the city. I will try to be there by 6 pm but will likely arrive before 7. We will do a brief meet and greet at the start and go over some basics for those who are just learning to use their cameras or new to night photography. Afterwards, we can grab a drink or a bite and review the shots taken.

What to bring:
DSLR Camera - required
Tripod - highly recommended
Shutter Release/Remote - recommended
Extra memory cards - recommended
Extra batteries - recommended
Layers of warm clothing and comfortable walking shoes - highly recommended

There is public parking and street parking around the park and the theatre. Please be mindful of all signs to avoid pricey parking fines.
