This is a great introduction to night photography. It is a pleasant time of year to be out into the evening and there are numerous different scenes to photograph during the carnival.

Join Bob in Downtown Birmingham for Carnival Night! This photography workshop will be all about photographing the lights and the crowds at night. Birmingham will be bursting with lights and people and Bob will instruct you on how to capture the light and motion!

This will be a hands on session held on the streets of Birmingham. I am limiting it to 12 participants so I have plenty of time to work with each person.

The only steadfast requirement is that you have a sturdy tripod. If you do not own a good tripod, I am an authorized Induro and Benro tripods dealer. I price match B&H Photo as well as Amazon, with the added benefit of personally helping you select the appropriate model for your needs and budget.

It is recommended that you have a remote release that allows you to release the camera shutter without having to physically touch the camera. If you do not have one, we can set your camera to use self-timer. We also carry the Phottix line of wired remotes if you are interested in purchasing one.

We will discuss and implement:

• Exposure compensation•

• Zooming during a long exposure

• General Night Photography techniques

• Light trails of headlights and tail lights

• Bob's cell phone is[masked] if you are trying to locate him.

Bob typically parks in the deck on Pierce Street.
