Photography After Dark - Nighttime Photography

Course Description

This course introduces the most creative techniques and is an essential culmination of the two previous core photography courses (Introduction and Intermediate). This course teaches the photographer the ability to effectively and artistically photograph dimly lit scenes with and without supplementing additional light. You will learn to proficiently use the camera’s flash for practical results to outright funky creative interpretations.

Explore concepts and techniques including painting with light, long exposures, shake and bake, dragging the shutter, multiple flash triggers, multiple exposures, sweet light, golden light, etc. 

This will be an exciting class and a natural progression of photography skills for Carolina Classroom students who have taken the Introduction and Intermediate Photography classes. Digital photographers with a good understanding of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed will also benefit from this class.
