With only a sliver of a new moon in the sky, you will have some of the best conditions to explore night photography. This workshop is scheduled to be sure you have as much evening light and clear skies as possible. 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, and 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!

Meet at the Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park parking lot and look for Nick's bright yellow truck!
