Moonrise over Alcatraz Photo Walk

Photo by Michael Maloney

We are pleased to announce that Michael from our Camera West Walnut Creek staff will again start up his series of popular monthly photo walks.  Each month, he picks a different theme, subject or location in the bay area. Photographers of all abilities are always welcome.

The January photo walk will take us to San Francisco where we will photograph the rising full moon over Alcatraz and the east bay hills.

On Sunday, January 4th, conditions should be perfect as the moon rises near the same time as the sun sets. This gives us the ability to capture detail in both the full moon and the landscape. Michael will be on hand to help with proper exposure and offer tips to help you get a photo you will be proud of.

Don’t miss this opportunity! Sign up early, as participation will be limited to just 20 photographers.

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

Cost : $25.00

Call or email Michael at Camera West Walnut Creek for more info or to sign up.
