    I had an awesome time meeting new shutterbugs with Lynford continue to be the gracious host he is.

    • Lynford M.

      Thanks, Greg. I always appreciate you coming out and shooting with us!

    I read that Lynford Morton will be there this evening to provide guidance to those who may wish it. I will be there as well...wearing my customary Red Shirt and Yellow and Blue West Virginia baseball hat...also available to help newbies or others who are not familiar with taking photos of fireworks.

    I shall be heading to the Tidal Basin earlier to try to get some great photos. I welcome others to join me although I cannot give a specific time. If you are there, and see me, please say something.

    I can be reached by telephone at[masked]

    sorry I did not get a chance to go to the meeting place. I got stuck in the middle of the thick crowd. Lesson learned: don't tag along a 2-yr old when you intend to shoot fireworks. I ended up enjoying the show though...

      Sorry we missed you, Jo. Hope you got some good family time in tho.

      Missed everyone and got stuck behind a house boat:-(

      April 5, 2014

  • Lynford M.

    We are moving down to the water. Go past the tent toward the boats.

  • Jo P.

    Hi, I am a newbie in every sense of the word. I hope I will have enough courage to approach any of you friendly photographers if I see you there.

    March 31, 2014

    • Sue B.

      Whoops! Everyone is really friendly so don't worry! It will be fun!

      When you first walk in the festival, there's a small stage to your left but if you continue straight toward the water, take a right and walk a couple of blocks, there's a larger area where there are booths and more music!

      April 5, 2014

  • Lynford M.

    Shutterbugs, when you get to 700 Water Street, right near the corner of 7th & Water, you will see some white tents. As you face the tents, I will be waiting for you on the direct right. Here is a photo that shows exactly where we will meet. http://photos2.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/2/1/e/a/highres_348848682.jpeg

    Remember, check back here for updates as we get closer to the time of the event.

    Hi everyone, I will not be able to make it out this evening. I hope you all get plenty of great images.

    April 5, 2014

  • Crystal V.

    Unfortunately I have 2 sick kids and I am not going to be able to get away for this event. I need 2 volunteers to be cho-host of the event. I will give you the event information and you will need to work out the meeting place details, meet as many of the photographers as possible (normally you see about 10% of who are signed up) and be available for questions. http://www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org/2013/07/19/southwest-waterfront-fireworks-festival/

    • Ron C.

      It all depends on how wide a view you want to get...and how much foreground. I suggest bringing both and experiment. You will not have long once the fireworks begin, but ample time if you act quickly. I prefer my[masked]mm zoom lens and then I do not have to change. Be sure to bring and set-up your tripod.

      Thanks Ron! Will do!

      Thanks for the update, Naomi!

      April 5, 2014

  • Ron C.

    As is my custom for Photo Meet-Ups, I will be wearing my yellow and blue West Virginia hat and red shirt so that I can be approached by newbies who desire some guidance. Be sure to bring your tripod.

    1 · March 30, 2014

    • Sue B.

      Hi Ron, I'll be there too, and will look for you! I'll be the one with the lt blue jean jacket and the lady with the rollator (my Aunt) who will be coming along this time.
