Sunrise Shoot at the Oceanside Pier
Join us for a Sunrise Shoot at the Oceanside Pier. We will shoot blue hour and sunrise capturing the lights of the pier, rocks, and sky. Sunrise is 6:23am and there will be no moon present. The tide will be 1/2 way out when we start. At 7:30am after a group photo, we will walk down the pier photographing surfers and a semi tame pelican that lives on the pier. At the end of the pier, Ruby's restaurant will be available for breakfast or something warm to drink. I recommend wide, and medium wide angle lens for landscapes. Long zoom lens are best for surfers. Tripods are a *must* for the first hour. A flash light could be helpful at first. Parking across from the 333 restaurant is $5 for all day in the lot. This requires walking down a ramp or two flights of stairs. Meters are $1.50 per hour maximum of 4 hours. The lots down on the strand by the water are $9 for 3 hours. Free parking is available east of the railroad tracks near North Cleveland St and Sportfisher Dr. This is 5-6 blocks from our meeting spot.
