Wildlights Photography Workshop at Denver Zoo

Special events

Wildlights with Denver Zoo is a fun three-part night photography workshop!

Learn how to photograph Zoo Lights art pieces at night as well as how to "paint with light" and how to achieve generally more pleasing photographs through an exploration of exposure value at the first night's lecture.

Then apply learning during a night shoot at Denver Zoo where you’ll have an exclusive opportunity to photograph animals up close at the Zoo’s Exploration Station, and then go have a walkabout on the grounds to capture the beautiful zoo lights. Meet again for a critique to share your best images.

This workshop is brought to you by Denver Zoo and Mike's Camera.
