CHANGE OF LOCATION!!
Due to complications of security and member safety I’ve been informed that the camera club will not be allowed to enter the Middletown & Hummelstown RR yard. Even though I had not seen any No Trespassing signs or a secured area around the railyard and rolling stock I was informed by the staff of the Middletown & Hummelstown RR on Wednesday that anyone found photographing in the yard without permission or with a member of the RR staff would be subject to arrest for trespassing. So with that in mind we will photograph on City Island.
This Saturday September 27th
Now Meeting at City Island 8:00 till 11:30
This is our fall educational mentoring photography fieldtrip. We will photograph on and around City Island. In 2012 this was our most popular photo fieldtrip of the year. Please note that you should come directly to City Island where we will meet at the horse stable at the end of the Walnut Street Bridge (the iron bridge) We will Not leave from the Giant. We will be photographing the buildings, close-ups and views from City Island, we may even photograph from the top of the City Island parking garage. We plan to photograph the many bridges over the river and from the Walnut Street Bridge and if time permits, in Riverfront Park. Andrew Hoff will be mentoring and leading this trip and hopefully other seasoned veterans of the club will help some of the newer members. The goal is to have a more personal hands-on teaching session for those members that are unfamiliar or want help. With this kind of set-up you will be working with someone familiar with your brand of camera. Not only will they be help you with the technical issues and the handling of your camera, but also with the visual aspects of photography. This is not restricted to only Nikon or Canon brands or to DSLR photographers; if you another brand or have a point & shoot we can help you. This trip will be geared more towards an outdoor classroom experience. Emphasis will be placed on how to approach visual ideas, working with a tripod, getting the most from your lenses and what is the proper or best exposure. Parking should be free on the Island. Please park on the ball field side At this time the weather looks very promising. As usual expect a lot of walking.
What to bring: Extra digital cards, your instruction manual, extra batteries, flash unit, tripod, a wide angle lens, a macro lens, and a medium to long telephoto lens, comfortable shoes and water. There will be require walking. This is a rain or shine trip.
