We had a merry time at our annual holiday lights photowalk. Our group trekked through City Creek capturing both the hustle and bustle as well as the decorated holiday lights. Having Canon there to provide loaner gear and help with camera settings was the icing on the cake.
Join Pictureline on a wintry holiday walk through the city to shoot the sights of the season. Our annual photo walk event will take us around the City Creek area, where the lights are shining, and spirits are bright. Be sure to wear your warm clothes, and bring a tripod for your camera! Our Canon rep will be there with loaner lenses to try out. You don't need to be a Canon fan to join in the fun – all brands are welcome!
1) City Creek Commons
We’ll meet up just outside the entrance to City Creek Commons near the circular fountain. Here we’ll cover a few low-light photography techniques before we get going.
Capture the hustle and bustle of the holidays while overlooking the crowds along Main Street. You’ll experiment with slower shutter speeds in order to show motion in a still photo.
3) The Garden
Here we’ll focus on shooting holiday lights. We’ll talk about white balance, bokeh, and how to achieve starburst and other special effects.
4) Main Street Plaza
Make this year’s family portrait shine! You’ll learn how to properly light your subject with a flash while maintaining a festive holiday background.
Don’t forget to share your new photos with us on social media with #picturelinephotowalk so we can see each other’s work.
