Event description

Description

With new digital camera technologies, night time has become the right time to make spectacular images! Unlock your creativity and take your photography to a new place in this one-night workshop on the photograhic techniques after dark including wide-field astro-photography, light painting and light drawing. Learn how to photograph the night sky with your DSLR camera. Light painting and light drawing are photographic techniques in which images are made using long shutter speeds as the photographer uses a hand-held light source, such as a flashlight, to create the exposure. The photographer either points the light source directly at the camera to "draw with light" or "paints with light" by shining the light source on an object or scene to create the illumination. From Ansel Adams to Pablo Picasso, these seemingly magical techniques have long inspired photographers and artists alike with their ability to make visible the invisible and to play with time.

This class will take place in the access restricted historic Keys Ranch and participants with have the opportunity to photograph the cosmos amongst the historic ranch buildings and artifacts.

Class size limited to 8 participants, so sign up early!

Special note about Keys Ranch. We must be respectful of this historic site. Several areas will be off limits for photography and to help insure that invasive species are not introduced clean boots, socks and tripod legs are required. A brief discussion of workshop protocol while at Keys Ranch will be provided before leaving the classroom.
