Don't feel like you need to put your camera away after the sun goes down... head out in the dark & capture all the marvels hidden in the night.

This workshop is designed to help you understand and comprehend the world of low-light digital photography.  Harnessing the power of today's digital technology; it's possible to capture images that cannot be seen by the naked eye alone.  Learn what it takes to capture engaging nightscape images with this hands-on, in-the-field workshop. This course will include a pre-shoot instruction class and a three-hour night shoot.  In addition; we will have a wrap-up in-class session where we will review our images, discuss any issues, and cover some post processing tips.

My goal is to provide you with the confidence required to set you off on your own photographic journey... all while making it fun!

Recommended Equipment:

  • Camera with Manual shooting mode
  • Tripod & Cable Release / Remote
