Intro to Night Photography
Most anyone can push the trigger of a camera and instantly create a composition...but is it a strong composition? Strong compositions engage the viewer, usually with some sort of emotional impact, versus just presenting excessive visual data.
During this class, students will be introduced to specific photographic techniques useful for capturing compositions in low ambient light situations. They will also receive a primer in fundamental composition and capturing techniques which will be relevant to the evening’s activity, discussing night vs. daytime photography, compositional fundamentals, techniques for best capturing light at night, and optional post-processing suggestions.
