This workshop is scheduled early in the season to be sure you have as much evening light and clear skies as possible. With only a sliver of a new moon in the sky you will have some of the best conditions to explore night photography.
We will meet early enough to begin shooting 1 hour before sundown, photographing the sunset, the blue hour, and finally star trails and the Milky Way. Meeting in Davenport across from the Whale City Bakery, we will carpool up, moving to the expansive views at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. You’ll experiment with long exposures, Milky Way images, and light painting as well as bold colored images of the lighthouse! It doesn’t get better than this.
Prepare for light hiking. Bring a camera with manual controls, a tripod, headlamp and your cell phone.
Please see Class Resources on our website for details about meeting place.
