Night Photography at the Walton Lighthouse

ID : 10142   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic On the night of the new moon, you will have some of the best conditions to explore night photography. This workshop is scheduled to be sure we have as much evening light and clear skies as possible. We will meet early enough to begin shooting one hour before sundown, photographing the sunset, the blue hour, and the stars in the night sky. 

Meeting in front of the El Palomar restaurant at the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, we will shoot the sunset and include the lighthouse. Then we’ll move to the north side of the harbor and walk out on the jetty and onto the beach to capture expansive views including the lighthouse, the boats in the harbor, and the wharf. You’ll experiment with long exposures, light painting, and dramatic images of the lighthouse and the night sky. It doesn’t get better than this!

Students should have a basic understanding of your camera. Prepare for light hiking, as this class requires walking in the dark on trails and paths.
