Introduction to Night Photography
New technologies in photography have made Night Photography more accessible and popular than ever before. The digital camera allows for instant feedback that can serve as a guide for determining exposures but there is more to successful night photography than simply exposure. This class will cover lighting, contrast, atmosphere, equipment choices and subject matter – all important factors in shooting at night. From relatively short exposures by streetlight to full moon exposures for an hour or more, we will explore the range of possibilities within this genre. The workflow for this course will include biweekly shooting on location paired with image processing and critique which will allow students to practice and learn editing techniques as well as share work.
This course is suitable for any photographer who has a strong understanding of their camera and it’s controls, manual exposure, and file development techniques through Lightroom and Photoshop.
*Gear Requirements* – Any DSLR or Mirrorless camera which has RAW capability and manual exposure controls will work for this class. Additionally, students will need a tripod and intervalometer for steady times long exposures. (Some camera models have built in intervalometers, please refer to your camera manual)
To participate in this class, student must be 18 years of age or the minimum of a high school graduate (or the equivalent).
