Gilroy Gardens Shootout – Lumination
Date: October 23, 2016 | Time: 6PM – 10PM
Photograph the giant Chinese light displays and visit the Artisan Marketplace with other members of the MHPC. These incredible displays—some towering as high as 6 stories into the night sky—include giant dragons, mythical Qilin, and playful pandas, as well as historic landmarks like the Great Wall, Temple of Heaven, and Terracotta Warriors. The beautiful colored lights are the perfect opportunity to try some creative camera techniques such as slow shutter pan, zoom, and blur.
What To Bring: A Camera (duh! – any camera will do, including camera phones); wide-angle lens; telephoto lens; tripod, extra batteries; extra memory cards; cable or remote release; warm clothes for the chilly evenings; and, your creativity.
