Impromptu Field Trip – Downtown Halifax Blue Hour Photoshoot – Monday Sept 17

Hi All,

No it’s not the usual happy hour, but think of it as “happy hour” for photographers…

Although the printmaking seminar for tonight has been postponed due to a scheduling conflict, this gives us a chance to play with our cameras.

Meet at the NS Museum at 7pm for a 7:15pm departure. We will be experimenting with capturing images downtown during the “blue hour”, the magical time where the buildings and streets are still lit but the sky is a magical blue hue. Tonight’s blue period is predicted to be between 7:38pm and 8:16pm. Bring your camera, tripod and cable release if you have one.

You can find more information and examples of images taken during the blue time at the following sites:
Bluehour, Guide to Bluehour, Examples of Bluehour, Understanding Bluehour and Lightstalking Bluehour.

See you all tonight!

For those of you who could not attend because of other commitments…we look forward to connecting wth you soon. The evening was ‘chaired’ by Joyce, and the equipment was looked after by Bill and Merv….Thankyou very much!

The wonderful assortment of ‘Goodies’ were done by Laszlo and Maria and were enjoyed by all….Many thanks for all the planning and preparation…And thanks to Pam for a yummy dish as well !

Seven, (I believe) of the attendees brought images to share that explained “What I Did Last Summer”… All this made for a great evening…and of course there were a few antics, a few stories and lots of smiles and giggles !!! 🤪😜😉🤩
