Why put your camera away after golden hour? When the sun goes down you have an incredible opportunity to create unique images that you will be proud to share.
As long as you have a basic understanding of shutter speed, ISO and aperture, this course is designed to teach you everything you need to know to create stunning images at night and take your landscape and cityscapes to a new level.
What we will cover:
- The equipment you will need
- How to compose, focus and find your exposure in the dark
- Using existing light and painting with light
- Planning a trip or night photography excursion
- Tips and tricks to create effect in your images
This class will meet in the classroom during the day from 1-3pm, then reconvene from 7:30pm-9:30pm for hands on practice at Griffith Observatory.
Just after sunset we will meet again at a Griffith Observatory to put our newly learned skills in to practice. We will spend two hours in the field experiencing how this works in real life and seeing on your own camera how easy this fun and creative style of photography can be.

Brian Leary Bio:
Growing up in a house with a color darkroom and a father passionate about
photography, Brian Leary was quite literally – exposed to photography from
birth. With a love for hiking and all things nature he moved to the Seattle
area in his early twenties and still calls it home today. Combining an
exceptional memory with over a decade of experience in the retail side of
cameras, he knows his way around almost every digital camera made. Brian
spent nine months of the year selling cameras while on the side
photographing weddings, products and real estate along with teaching
photography to fund his insatiable wanderlust for the other three months of
Brian has explored more than twenty countries and driven his way through
more than two-thirds of the USA. During his travels the natural world around
him and the cultures inhabiting it are the focus of his imagery with a strong
passion for nighttime landscapes. As a full-fledged travel addict, Brian has
had the opportunity to photograph everything from endangered rhinoceroses
to the 50th anniversary of the Dalai Lama’s exile from Tibet.
These days whether teaching one on one, in classrooms or through
workshops in some of his favorite locations Brian loves sharing his technical
and creative knowledge with anyone interested. He has a unique ability to
take complex concepts and make them easy to understand. Still priding
himself on in camera shooting techniques in this digital age, similar to the
methods of slide film shooting, the majority of Brian’s images are created in
camera on a single frame.
When relaxing back in Seattle without a camera, Brian enjoys cooking,
reading and exploring the trails of the Cascade Mountains
