The Amazing Night Sky Presented by Jennifer Wu

This is your chance to see Jennifer Wu, Canon Explorer of Light!  A rare opportunity for only $10!!!

Photographing after sunset and before sunrise offers a whole new world of images and photographic opportunities. We often think it is too dark to photograph, but the camera can pick up the subtle light that our eyes do not see because the seemingly infinite darkness of the night is subtly lit by the stars and planets. Learn how to photograph the stars, the Milky Way, the moon and long exposures of the ocean surf for a wispy effect. Learn about the quality of light at night and how to use light in your photographs, especially when twilight offers beautiful light after sunset and before sunrise. It has characteristics that photographers can take advantage of and nature photographer/instructor Jennifer Wu will offer tips and suggestions for photographing it. She discusses light painting techniques that can be used on trees, rocks and buildings to add another dimension to night photography.

Jennifer takes you on a visual journey through the night sky in time-lapse movies you will surely enjoy. This inspiring and entertaining presentation is a must see for any one interested in photographing the moon, twilight, the Milky Way and night sky.

    I've seen a lot of photography. I collect it and even have a few pieces of my own work in some lesser museums. Jennifer's work is some of the most beautiful work I have ever seen. She is very clear, direct, and open as to how she produces her work. This workshop was tremendously helpful.
