Location: South Park in Central City, Nebraska. Let’s meet at the gravel parking lot at about this location, where 26th St. meets 17th Ave.
Schedule: This will be an evening workshop. Grab an early dinner and meet up at 5pm. We’ll cover as much as we can while it’s light, then move on to night-time special effects as we move from sunset into dusk. For those who can stay late, we’ll shoot the stars after it gets completely dark, ending at around 10pm.
Meals: Feel free to bring things to snack on. No meals will be provided.
Weather: Let’s pray for beautiful, clear weather, with maybe some puffy pink clouds for a special touch at sunset. Be sure to check the weather beforehand, though, just in case it’s rainy or colder than normal for a typical evening outside. It never hurts to dress in layers in case of unexpected cooler temperatures, and you might want to bring an extra pair of socks/shoes in case they get wet. If it’s going to be warm, modest summer attire is always appreciated.
