This month-long project class is devoted to low light photography, the special challenges, creative possibilities, and psychological implications of low light photography. Nighthawks in the class will venture to different locations around the city, seeking out scenes and subjects to explore through photography.
The focus of this month-long intensive course is to gain a working understanding of low light photography and to gain control of the basic camera operations, styles and processes that can be combined to make memorable night photographs. Through an intensive hands-on approach we will cover exposure techniques, painting with various types of light, remote releases, on and off camera flash, night portraiture, and street photography at night, among other topics. Through shooting at various locations, students will be able to form their own personal photographic vision as it relates to night photography. The class will make one visit to the collections study center at the Henry Art Gallery — and class will meet earlier on the date of that visit (date TBA). Students enrolling in this course might also be interested in: Printing a Night Photography Portfolio.
