Night photography is a challenging and sometimes difficult adventure, but the rewards are astounding when you know some special techniques.
This photography course will help you master low light and night photography. It also will teach you techniques of light painting, where a rich depth of color is created with reflections on water, enhanced by a black background.
You will learn how to capture the magic of the night, how to work under low light conditions, how to capture twilight moments and how to have fun with light painting!
Technical information will be presented just before dark, and the class will then use the new techniques. Reviews and suggestions finish the course on a friendly critical review of your images.
Students can expect to:
- Participants should bring a camera that can manually set ISO, shutter speed, and aperture, and they should know how to set manual mode.
- Participants are encouraged to bring a tripod and any kind of pocket light (LED, etc) to use during light-painting exercises.
Course Requirements: Suitable for all levels of photography. Participants should bring a camera with manual ISO, shutter speed, and aperture settings.
Location: Paris, one different location for each session. Location will be communicated 24 hours before the date of the class.
