Photography, by definition, is the art and science of recording light on a sensitized material like film or on today’s sensors in digital cameras. When photographers are in the daylight, the very presence of light is a given, something we take for granted. Night photography pulls the photographer out of that comfort zone and requires one to look at the world with different eyes and perspectives. The first step to night photography is the realization that the light is there, even when we can’t see it. This is the challenge, and it is this that transforms our captured world into peculiar and otherworldly images.
In this quick start, hands-on class, you will learn the long exposure photography for cityscapes and landscapes, light painting with a flashlight, creating light trails, and the necessary equipment for night photography. Then, we will go into the field after dark to shoot night photographs. **If you would like to view and edit your night photographs taken in the Night Photography workshop, register for the Using Adobe Lightroom for Your Photography workshop.
