The "Gotta Have It" Seattle night shot

I have been wanting to take this shot for a while, but had heard that the area for taking this angle is kind of sketchy. So when I heard that the Seattle flickr meetup was planning on a group shot here, I jumped at the chance. It was my first time joining them and really my first time shooting with other photographers. It was quite amazing. People were very generous in sharing their gear and technique. Quite a learning opportunity. We all lined up on the bridge to take this shot - it was quite a scene with 30-40 photographers all with their tripod and gear. Cars passing by must have been bewildered. Someone had joked aout what the net worth is of all the camera gear on this bridge.

 

What a fun but freezing night. ;p I think we stood on that bridge for 2 hours waiting for the sun the come down and taking different exposures to get the "right" shot.

 

Have a great weekend guys!!
