Have you been intrigued by all of those mind-bending night photography photos? C’Mon. You know you are. Was it the star trails? Was it the fire? Was it the soft, velvety water or the Milky Way galaxy laid out in front of you? If any or all of these are your goal, must first master the fundamentals.
My co-teaching partner, Gabriel Biderman, and I have been teaching night photography workshops for four+ years. I’ve been shooting at night for over 20 years. What keeps bringing me back is the endless possibilities of how you can play with time in a single photographic frame. Much like “the old days” you can do everything in-camera during a single exposure. It’s fascinating to experiment with what is possible and I’ll share more about what I’ve been doing lately after the tutorial and share an opportunity to learn with us at upcoming workshops.
In this primer I’ll cover these areas: Basic Gear & Getting One Good Exposure
