A Whole New World: Night/Existing light photography with today's DSLRs


Host:  Dave Henry

Fee:  $49

Setting electronic flash aside, photographing with existing light has always been a compelling way to capture images, so much so that it’s become an identifiable style for some photographers. Today’s high ISO DSLR technology is amazing. Low-light image quality was unthinkable only a few years ago. Now, with today’s high ISOs, there’s never been a better time to really explore the possibilities with existing light. 

In this three-hour program, our resident pro, Dave Henry, will move you past the challenges of dimly lit areas, giving you the knowledge and confidence to get truly better pictures in situations where flash may not be the right answer. 

He’ll cover shooting techniques used in street photography, night skylines, star field and star trail photography, amusement parks, fireworks and much more. Then he’ll cover menu-processing tips that will change your way of thinking about digital noise. 

When the sun goes down, you’ll discover a whole new world of photographic possibilities. You’ll be inspired to get out of the house to shoot at times when you thought all you could do was watch television! 

What you will learn: 

• Photographing cityscapes 

• Shooting during “Money Light” 

• Low light interiors 

• Custom color balance

    Jim / Dave - Unfortunately I've come down with a cold today and am leaving work early. Rather than showing up & infecting you and the others - I won't be joining tonight. I was really looking forward to this one, but will look out for the next time this one is being run.
