Nighttime / Long Exposures Photography
What you'll learn in this digital photography class:In this class, JP will take you into Central Park just as the sun is setting. Because your camera will be picking up light that isn't even detectable to the human eye, you're sure to be surprised and delighted with the resulting images.
By simply adjusting the shutter speed on your camera to speeds of longer than one second, you'll start to delve into the world of long exposures photography. This class is best enjoyed with point-and-shoots and SLRs that allow you to manually set your aperture and shutter speed.
Materials: Each student is encouraged to bring flashlights with them since the last half hour of the class will be dedicated to light painting where we, as a group, will experiment with using each image as a canvas that we can "paint" on with our individual light sources. Also, having a tripod is highly recommended.
