Night Photography - Blue Hour and the New Moon at the Walton Lighthouse

ID : 11253   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic 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 the stars in the night sky.

Meet in front of El Palomar at the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. We will shoot the sunset from the south side of the harbor 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!

Prepare for light hiking, as this class requires walking in the dark on trails and paths. Wear comfortable walking shoes, and dress for the weather. Bring a camera with manual controls, a tripod, a headlamp, and your cell phone
