An Evening in Balboa Park - SD-dSLR September Monthly Group Shoot

For our September Group Shoot, on Saturday September 10, we met in Balboa Park for a picnic dinner, then wandered off around the Park to shoot some evening photos. These Group Shoots are always a lot of fun. They seem to wind up being as much of social gathering as a photography event. I think most of us spend more time visiting than actually shooting pictures.

Here are a few of my favorites from the night, taken in the Alcazar Garden, a small Moorish-style garden tucked behind one of the museums. There is very little light in the Alcazar after dark, but with some creative flashlight use (painting with light) and an almost full moon popping in and out of the clouds, we had a lot of fun.

It actually was somewhat darker than it appears in this next shot.

Before we went into the Alcazar we spent some time at the Reflecting Pool.
