Join photographers Stan Honda and Lee Uehara in this unique way to photograph the city. They’ll share their knowledge and set-ups for taking those night photos you’ve always wanted to try snapping.Β  This, is however, more of Photo Walk + Portable Picnic, so it’s B.Y.O.Snacks!

Total walking will be 1 mile to 1.5 miles as we’ll walk around the Jackie Onassis Reservoir to capture first the sunset and then the moonrise. Folks are welcome to exit Central Park any way they wish after photographing the moonrise, which is on the west side of the park.

ALL levels are welcome; more the merrier!

πŸ‘‹ We’ll See You Tonight!August 13th, 2022

Hi Worldwide Photo Walkers!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all tonight.

Here are a few additional points:

1. Let’s meet at 7:15 p.m. to be able to set up BY 7:30 p.m.

2. There will be time between the sunset and moonrise to hang out and socialize, so we thought it would be fun to make it Potluck Snacks. Your choice. We’ll have pretzels, perhaps.

3. As we set up on the reservoir, we need to avoid blocking the pedestrian traffic. To do this, we’ll park our tripods closer to the fence. We’ll also demo this for you.

3b. We’ll need to also be careful when setting up our gear so that nothing falls into the reservoir.

If you need to reach us, We’ll be checking emails.

β€”Lee + Stan
