The night is the time of mystery. When the sun goes down and the street lights come on, the world changes. This class is designed to explore just how the world changes when the sun goes down. Through exploring the world at night we are searching for an answer to the mysterious, the hidden. Night photography has a way of revealing what often goes unseen and reveals this mysterious world of the night. We will explore different techniques to get the most out of night photography from long exposure to external light sources as well as different subject matter like astral photography, light drawings, flash photography and night portraiture. As working professionals, the night is often the only time that is free to us. We will use this class as a way to get the most out of what we have available and explore different ideas and ways to make the night less mysterious and more approachable.
