Photography in the Dark? Don’t you need LIGHT to take a photograph? The simple answer is YES. The fun answer is “sort of”… and in this class devoted to some very special techniques to literally “paint with light” using portable strobe, flashlights, sparklers and more. Instructor Dan Nelson will enlighten you on how you can create some unique, artistic and incredibly fun images using a variety of methods.
Your weekend begins in the classroom with a discussion on the necessary equipment and instruction on how to use it. Later that afternoon, in a darkened room, you will practice these techniques and work as a team to create some amazing images. The class continues that evening with a field trip to a special destination (TBD) where you and your classmates will practice these techniques out doors; photographing at night. The following day you will all meet once again to review the photographs that were created the previous day, learn a few new tricks and discuss some editing techniques that can enhance the photographs and elevate them to true works of art.
