Facebook | Photowalking the USS Hornet Well our photowalk on Sunday is looking to be quite an event. So far 20 people have signed up as attending on Facebook with another 26 maybes.
For those of you who haven’t shot the Hornet before, it’s a great subject. The USS Hornet is a decommissioned aircraft carrier that is available for visits and is open to photography. The Hornet was active in World War II and also recovered both the Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 crews. You can read more about the Hornet here at wikipedia.
The best stuff in my opinion on the Hornet is below deck. There is a whole village under there. A jail, dinning hall, bunk rooms, etc. I’m excited especially to try and shoot some of the below deck stuff with my ultra wide 14mm lens. I think that there will be some interesting spaces to capture with that lens/scene combo.
Robert Scoble and Photowalking Producer Rocky Barbanica will be there shooting video to get another great episode of photowalking out.
The photo above is actually quite an old archive photo of mine of the engine room. The last time I was there I didn’t have an digital SLR so it goes back a ways.
Anyways, come on out with a bunch of photogeeks and talk cameras and shoot this great site. We’ll meet at 2pm on Sunday. The Hornet closes at 5pm, so if people want to stick around we can go grab some dinner somewhere in Alameda and then come back and shoot more of the base at night. Alameda is one of the coolest places for night photography in San Francisco.
If you haven’t already RSVP at the Facebook page here. And feel free to join the Facebook photowalking group while you are there!
