For our meeting this Friday we will go on a downtown Tampa photowalk. We will gather in Curtis Hixon Park and then I will lead a sunset/twilight photowalk through downtown. We will finish our walk at Five Guys and can eat there. Come early and shoot in the park if you wish. We will gather up at 7:00 and leave the park by 7:15 at the latest. We will gather at the fountains on the northeast corner of the park near the Children’s Museum. Parking is available in the city garage next to the museum at the posted rates. Parking in metered spots on the surrounding streets is free after 6:00 pm. You may also park at the University of Tampa and walk over the bridge to the park. Pack lightly so that you can walk comfortably and shoot for about an hour and a half. As for gear recommendations it would probably be a good idea to have wide-angle to medium telephoto lenses and a tripod. Flash is optional but could be of use for some creative shots. Bottled water is always a good idea so that you can stay hydrated while walking and shooting. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there on Friday night!
