Event Details

Photographing New York City at night is quiet an amazing experience.  When the sun goes down, the city truly comes to life, it’s an entirely new photographic playground, full of dramatic light, deep shadows, reflections, multiple light sources, architectural lighting and motion.  With this opportunity comes a great number of technical hurdles.  How to capture the light streaks of taxi’s screaming down the road, to focus on faces in low light, to white balance multiple light sources and to gauge exposure in fluctuating light.

Classroom Night & Low-Light Photography

Before venturing out to shoot on the streets, a basic understanding of  key principles and techniques along with how to use the tools of the trade to overcome common hurdles is critical to setting yourself up for success.  Learning these tips and techniques in a controlled environment with an instructor will go a long way when the sun goes down.

Some topics to be covered include:

  • Camera settings and critical techniques used to capture the night

  • Basic principles of Panning - motion blur and selective focus

  • Manual Settings and a primer on working with slow shutter speeds and how to “drag the shutter”

  • Overview and demonstration of the gear needed to take advantage of nighttime shooting including tripods, remote shutter releases, mirror lockup, focusing tricks and more

  • Finding opportunity in low light through composition and shutter speed

  • Solutions for white balancing when exposing multiple sources

  • Camera stabilization tips and techniques

Suggested Prerequisites: All Core Workshops: Understanding the Manual Settings of Your Camera, Exposure Settings: Perfect Exposure Every Time, Techniques for Making Better Photographs, Finding Your Photographer’s Eye, The Art of Composition, Understanding Light and Using Available Light

Requirements: Bring your camera for exercises in the subsequent connecting Workshop: Low-Light Photography in Grand Central Terminal.
