Dec. Field Trip #1 - Holiday Lights of Coral Gables


We're heading north to Coral Gables, the big metropolis! They have beautiful decorations during the holiday season and we've decided to shoot them. The date is Dec. 4th, it's a Monday, so hopefully less people on site and less traffic.

Let's meet around 5pm. If you're going to be late, let us know in advance (when you RSVP) so we can keep you up to date of our location if we need to move. Sunset is at 5:30 so get there on time if you want to shoot City Hall in its best light. After the sun goes down the lights start twinkling. That's when we will have some fun.

Maybe afterwards we can head on over to John Martins for a hot toddy or whatever treats your fancy.

BE SURE TO RSVP to and let us know you're coming. If you'll be running later than 5pm, let us know that too.

Items to bring:

  • Tripod
  • Remote Shutter Release
  • Wide and Zoom Lenses
  • Appropriate attire for the weather
  • Any refreshments as is necessary for you

We'll be walking around the city hall area so wear comfortable shoes; and also, only carry with you what you will need. No need to weigh yourself down with unnecessary items.

Below are aerial photos of the area we'll be shooting.

This is the overall area. The middle of the map going north and south is LeJeune Road or SW 42nd Avenue. Middle of the map going east and west is Miracle Mile/Coral Way.
