Camera West Moonrise Photo Walk

Gusty winds and overcast sky made shooting the moonrise over SF a real challenge

I want to extend my thanks to everyone who braved the weather and joined us on our first Camera West Photo Walk. Although the fog was not as thick as I feared it would be, the wind was a huge factor, making shooting long exposures on a tripod a real challenge.

Despite the wind and overcast conditions, I hope all of you who attended made some nice images, had a good time and learned something new.

For those of you who missed this Moonrise Photo Walk, I’ll be leading others later this year or next.

Next month’s photo walk will be in downtown Pleasanton where we will cover the Fast & Furious Criterium. Last year I led a workshop at this bicycle race and the participants came up with some great images. You can view them in this blog post.

Contact Michael at Camera West in Walnut Creek if you have questions or want to sign up. More details will be posted here on the blog soon.
