Night Photography Workshop
Night photography presents different challenges from daytime photography, but once mastered, it opens up a whole new way of expressing your creativity. This workshop teaches the fundamentals needed to photograph night scenes.
Topics and exercises include:
- tips for focusing
- light trails
- painting with light
- photographing stars/auroras
Participants will need a camera with a wide angle lens (preferably a zoom) and be familiar with using the manual and bulb settings of their camera. Also, you will need a fully charged battery, tripod and a flashlight/headlamp. A remote shutter release (cable or wireless) is recommended. Dress warm for being outside at single digit temperatures for 2-3 hours. If you would like, bring a portable heater and something hot to drink. No hiking is involved. You will receive a link to reference materials before the workshop.
Please note - there are no guarantees that skies will be clear to photograph stars. However, you will learn techniques to capture sharp nightime photos including stars and auroras.
