Intro – Night Photography on Mare Island
This workshop is for photographers who would like to learn how to make proper exposures (film or digital) after dark, with moonlight or existing artificial light. After completing this workshop students will be able to make a wide variety of low-light situations, from relatively short, to longer exposures. Film and digital capture will be discussed and compared. The origination point will be on the historic “Mare Island Museum”. We will meet for a brief intro/lecture and will follow by fieldwork. This location is rich in subject matter, from 100-150 year old buildings, massive ship building equipment and historic mansions, and numerous military artifacts.
*Prerequisite: Students need to know how to use their specific cameras in the dark, with full manual control via remote or cable release, along with a firm grasp of basic concepts of photography. * Students need to bring Tripods to this workshop. The instructor will email further info/ directions.
