Night Photography at Union Square/St. Mark's Place

  • This location is shown only to members

Night photography is all about beauty. To be able to capture this beauty you must have patience. When you see a night shot, it looks fairly simple but a lot of thought and work goes into it. In the end, it is all worth the experience because of the beautiful photos as results. During this workshop we will learn to shoot night shots and low lighting situations. As a part of the night photography workshop we will also cover a little bit of strobe photography, time lapse and long exposure. We will go over the basic camera settings, ISO, aperture, Shutter speed and how they are affected by the lack of light in addition to white balance and photographing under different light sources such as street lamps, car headlights, neon signs. We will go over techniques such as camera holding techniques. Equipment for night photography such as lenses with Vibration Reduction, why you would want to use a tripod, using a remote shutter cable, how to effectively use flash at night.This Workshop is recommended for anyone who interested in night photography to learn how to capture those amazing photos seen online or in many photo books. We will start at Union Square and end up in the St. Mark’s Place area, possibly detouring into a subway station for some low-lighting practice.

      If you like but its not necessary. If you have one, feel free to bring it, if not, Ken will show you ways to photograph at night without one.
