Night Shoot, Downtown Petaluma

We love night shoots! This time, we thought we'd move a little more south and capture Petaluma's Historical downtown area.

Bring your flash and tripod if you have one - if you dont, we're famous for sharing.

We'll establish a meeting location as it gets closer to February.

    not quite sure were to go, etc. one of my off nights. Would definitely go again - plenty of subject matter.

    I do have a question. Why are we meeting so early (4 pm) if it is a night shoot. Just wondering.

      Yes Simona, we want to be on location before the golden and blue hour.

      To figure the times, you can use this calculator:
      http://jekophoto.eu/t...­
      Search for Petaluma and the calculator will prepopulate our Latitude & Longitude. If desired, you can change from the default Sunrise/Sunset + Blue Hour to Golden Hour, etc. Then press Submit and... PRESTO, see the times of day for that event!

    There is a large parking lot off Washington blvd. that would be good place to gather. Then spread out in a few different directions from there. Lots of good restaurants in the area if anyone wants to meet afterwards.

    2 · January 12, 2013

    • Chuck L.

      I was looking over the area through Google Maps. Given the large number of participants, will the folks at Dempsey's have an issue with 50-60 cars showing up in their parking lot?

      February 7, 2013

    • Robert

      If parking in an issue there is a large parking structure not far from there on C Street between 1st and 2nd streets near the new theater. It's a quick walk to the Water Street Bridge or to historic downtown (~4 blocks). It should accomodate a group of our size without any issue.

    I've been in touch with Petaluma Batman and he says to keep a look out for him on the Feb 17th night shoot. Should be great fun.
