NPC Outing - Light Trails Photography in Cobourg - Monday, November 25th

At the most general level, photographing light trails involves finding a spot where you’ll see the light trails created by cars, securing your digital camera, setting a long exposure setting on your camera, and shooting at a time when cars will be going by to create the trail of light. 

DATE: Monday, November 25th at 6:00 p.m. Alternate date due to poor weather conditions is Tuesday, November 26th at 6:00 p.m.

LOCATION: We will meet in front of Victoria Hall in Cobourg at 6:00 p.m. for the beginning of this outing. Free parking on Covert Street behind downtown area. We'll stay there for about 30-45 minutes and then head to the Nagle Road bridge over the 401. Follow Division Street north to Densmore Road (stoplights – KIA dealership). Turn right for about 2-3 km (the road changes to Danforth Road). Take a left at Nagle Road and the overpass is just ahead about 300 metres. Park along the shoulder of the road on the far side of the bridge. Afterwards we can stop in for a beverage at Turtle John's. It's a 5 minute drive and we can go together. Follow Nagle to VanLuven Road (4 way stop). Turn left and another left at the corner (Highway 45 South). Turtle John's is about 100 metres on your right.

Things to bring:

*Tripod to avoid camera shake (or a beanbag or something to stabilize your camera).

*Remote, if you have one or know how to set your camera timer so you can avoid camera shake.

*A small portable flashlight to check your camera settings and also to warn cars that there are     photographers in the area.

*Extra camera battery stored in your pocket for warmth.

*Dress according to the weather.

Light trails can also occur when you drink 10 beers within a 2 hour period and try to drive home on the 401.
