I went with RPM for a night shoot this past week and was glad I pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I had *never* used a tripod before, or actually attended a photo taking meet up. Since I work best under pressure and require deadlines to get any and everything done, I finally cracked open my Nikon manual. I worked for two days on preparing for this shoot. I brushed up on things like ISO and shutter speed, but also learned how to plug in my new toy, a remote control shutter release. Youtube is also a great thing:)
We began in Jefferson Park, then headed to Libby Hill, and finished at Great Shiplock Park. The shoot began at 8pm and we wrapped it up around 10:30pm. There were about eight of us, and one of the most fun parts of being part of the RPM forum is seeing all the different pictures and perspectives from the same exact places posted after the meet up.
