MPS PHOTO TIP OF THE MONTH HOLIDAY LIGHTS
The best time to shoot is before total
darkness. Arrive a little before sunset ... this gives you time to
plan your shot before the good light ... or "magic hour" occurs. You may
have to ask your subject to turn the lights on early - most people don't
turn them on until the good light is already gone. During our night
Safaris in season we advise you to include as much sky as possible in the
background. Shooting from a low position can help. If possible,
position your shot into the afterglow of the evening sky.
Look for a light foreground, like snow, this can add nice foreground interest
Make SURE you use a tripod or beanbag to
steady your camera. You'll be shooting some fairly long exposures, in the
range of 1/4 to 1 second.
SAFARIAN IMAGE GALLERY
HISTORY TIDBITS FROM OUR SAFARIS
Roots of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota...
Groundbreaking for the Mall
of America took place in June 1989, a windy, cold day. Skeptics in the press
commented on the probability of failure building such a large tourist
attraction in this arctic climate!
The mall was (and still is)
2nd largest enclosed mall in terms of retail space behind the West Edmunton
Mall in Canada... but is largest in terms of total enclosed floor area.
We cover more extensive history and facts during our Safaris 4, 5, and 7 where we walk and photograph the sights of the Mall of America.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS from your friends at
MIDWEST PHOTO SAFARI
