Open yourself up to a new world of shooting in this 3-hour introduction to night photography! Class will start with an exploration of the genre, looking at works from both classic and modern photographers and examining their creative and technical elements. Then, students will devise a strategy for achieving well-exposed, sharp, and noise-free images in low-light conditions, utilizing tools such as ISO, noise reduction, and histograms.
After the lecture, students will hit the streets to put their new technical knowledge, (and creative inspiration), into practice. Emphasis will be placed on using composition, color, and technique to capture expressive imagery during the “magic hour” of twilight. Then, as the light descends and blackness emerges, students will explore the use of artificial light sources to “paint” nighttime scenes.
