Traditional Techniques

This is the night of the winter solstice, and a few days before Christmas. Christmas is a time for tradition, so we're going to play with some "traditional" and creative "in-camera" techniques for photograhing some local river views, street views, colours, graphics and abstracts.

Get away from the crowds, shopping and stress for a couple of hours, for a look around at the lights and views of New Westminster.

It's the winter solstice, the longest night of the year.

We will have hot coffee and cookies, a variety of filters for you to play with and some suggestions for other creative techniques to try. There are great views of the river, bridges, quay and city streets.

HINT: As an extra added bonus, this will be your perfect and last chance for photos for the "Night Shots" theme that closes Christmas Eve!
