A Holiday Lagniappe
Photographing Christmas Lights
at the Baton Rouge Zoo
Thursday, December 17th, 2020 6 pm-9 pm (ish)
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Which means lights everywhere for us to take pictures of! We will meet at the front gate to the zoo just before 6 and venture in at 6pm. We’ll talk briefly at the front about photographing Christmas lights and then walk around taking pictures of all the great displays they have set up. I have some “inside” information that there are going to be some really photographic displays this year. We’ll have a mile long trail through the zoo.
Admission for Zoo Lights is $5 adults, $4 seniors. The BR Zoo is also participating with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. If you bring a non-perishable food item, you will receive 50% off your admission to Zoo Lights!
Since this is a night event, animal viewing will be very limited and flashes/ flashlights aren’t allowed, we’ll be getting to know our cameras in low light situations. The following equipment is recommended: tripod, wide angle and medium zoom lens (but get creative with other lenses!), remote trigger if you have it would be helpful.
Their concession stand is open and is probably around the halfway point. Registration is required and space is limited to 20 participants.
