Night Photography
What does it mean to “capture” light? How do artists use light as a medium to create completely original works? In this new series of night photography workshops, students will learn the technical basics of shooting in low or high contrast light as well as how to move beyond documentary style photographs into artistically manipulated images by using lens movements, flash fills, and other experimental methods. These workshops take place during Munro exhibition hours to fully take advantage of the light installations as both subject and inspiration.

Students are asked to bring a camera with manual controls, a sturdy tripod (along with the adapter to mount the camera to the tripod), a cable release for the camera, a standard zoom lens (24-70mm), (recommended but optional: an ultrawide zoom lens, a longer telephoto lens greater than 100mm), and an extra camera battery. Please wear dark clothing.

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.
