This is a collective of people who share a passion for night photography.

This Meetup is about gathering in groups, small or large, to capture the night and share the outcome with each other. Education, respectful and constructive feedback, exhibition of images and socializing during and after our gatherings are all part of our activities.

We will explore old, new, popular and exotic places in the greater Boston area, southern New Hampshire and Maine, Rhode Island, northern Connecticut and central Massachusetts and there are occasional field trips to places such as New York or Maine. Inner city nightscapes will be as much part of our portfolio, as will be dark sky star, astro-landscape and Milky Way shoots or light painting opportunities.

Most events will be free (no special fees beyond membership dues), membership dues will cover Meetup.com costs, minor group expenses and promotional means, invited lectures and trip organization expenses. Some events, such as field trips, may incur further cost, as announced in those meetups. You can sign up for free and attend one meetup to see if this is for you, but you are expected to pay dues if you continue membership. Limited attendance meetups are only for paid members. Note that this is the only continuously active night photography meetup in New England, we average one photo shoot every ~10 days, one meetup every week, and even keep it alive and going throughout the winter. Browse our "past meetups" to see what we have been doing.

Night photography is exciting, presents the world in a truly different light and is serene and calming in many ways. However, it is also very different from daytime shooting, sometimes physically taxing and requires to watch out for yourself and others. The meetups here will always be conducted with adult and mature members, who provide safety through numbers, but you will always be responsible for your own safety.

Before you start browsing around, please take a look at the MORE-POLLS in the menu and let us know your preferences and then please review the DISCUSSIONS, also in the menu, for various resources and some pointers on equipment, safety, attendance and membership rules.

We are looking forward to seizing the night with you!

    "Okay, we will meet at the park entrance but do not park at the entrance? Parking along the area streets has lately been posted with "No Parking"­ signage."

    "...and set your white balance to the clouds (warm it up a tad, it's a bit blue). What lens did you use? The distortion almost adds a fisheye feel to it."

    "Nice reflections! If you warm up the white balance a little, those colors on the water will pop more."

    "Cool shot; love the contrast of the warm and cool lights. The sky is interesting too, with the cloud streaks. What would make this even better is to straighten the distortion from your wide angle lens."

    "Interesting leading lines, and your capture of the clouds is very nice. It would have been better to have some separation between the pilings, and your White Balance is too cool. I would suggest warming it up a bit."
