      Photographing Wishes

      Hoping to get to photo Wishes properly this trip

      Don't have a tripod (no way can manage to lug that around with the kids!), just a gorillapod, so need something to attach it to.

      Couldn't really see anywhere on Main St, around Casey's. Occured to me that Main St station might be an option. Is there something there, like a railing, I can wrap it around? And is it close enough using my 17-85mm lens? And do people still stake that location out a long time in advance?

      :thanks:

      I was going to suggest a locker. :D Don't know what a gorillapod is , but I have watched Wishes from Main Street Station . And there are railings, benches & tables with chairs ( at least there use to be ) make sure to get there a couple of hours beforehand as it fills up fast and then you may not get an area to set up . Don't know anything about lenses either , thats either of the 2 SM's or TT expertise .

      Not just carrying it round the parks, it'd take up luggage space and have to get it to and from the parks too, so will have to keep with gorillapod for now

      We have taken loads of photos from the station, and every year you seem to need to get there earlier and earlier.
      You get a great view, and you could put your gorillapod on the railing. You could also use it nearer your feet (remember you are already up high). The trick will be having a pushchair, bags or something similar to avoid people running between you and your camera, the gap between the bench and the railing is bigger than you would think

      Would most likely be on my own, leaving Jon & kids at hotel. How early is early?

      You should also be able to possibly rig up on light posts down Main St.

      Do you have a trigger release for this? If you do, that will help you be able to get higher up (i.e., above heads) because you won't have to be able to reach the shutter button.
