Night Photography

Date: June 15, 2024
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

WITH Stephen Bay


Night photography can be one of the most challenging and rewarding genres of photography. It requires careful planning, good field technique, and masterful editing but when pulled off can yield incredible and unique images that most people wouldn't have thought possible.

In this workshop, I'll cover from start to finish how I go about making some of my most memorable night images. From my initial concept to post processing. Where I failed and had to backtrack and what succeeded. Examples covered will include a variety of subjects such as the Milky way, moon, light painting, cityscapes and editing techniques such as stacking, blending, and noise reduction. I'll also discuss common pitfalls that I see in night photography from judging at the fair.
