Overview

Learn how the light of the sun changes as it sets and how to get amazing pictures as it goes from bright to dark. 

 

Achieve the skills needed to create spectacular night photographs in this photo walking tour of Blackhawk Plaza in Danville. You'll gain the skills to capture stunning, colorful and dramatic low light and night photographs. Your instructors will guide you along a hands-on walking tour with multiple photo demonstrations. You'll be able to shoot photographs alongside your instructors and get tips and advice on how to improve your images.

On Thursday, you will join us at the Dublin store to learn the techniques you’ll need to take amazing shots. Then on Saturday, we will meet at the giant elephant sculpture in front of the Blackhawk Museum and put your new skills to work. After the shoot, you’ll pick out your favorite photo and send it to us so we can print a 12x18 that you can keep of it for a gallery show that we’ll be throwing on Tuesday to review everyone’s images.

 

What You’ll Learn

  • The proper settings to take great night & long-exposure photos
  • Making use of artificial lights to highlight your subject during long exposures
  • How to capture more light through long-exposure photography to make the night look more like the day
  • Learn how to create light trails and motion effects with the use of long exposures
  • How to use the bulb mode setting and timed exposure settings to create better images
