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. Meeting in Davenport across from the Whaler 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, 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.
