Night Photography - Winter in Capitola

We begin just before sunset on Capitola beach at 4:30, meeting on the lawn area near the Britannia Arms Restaurant, and get some sunset shots!. This is a rain or shine event, and we will hope for drizzle and/or fog because the halos around the streetlights and shiny streets make for dramatic photos!

Jeffery will share the best techniques for getting great night shots with long exposures, snap zoom effects, light painting, and selective depth of field. If you’ve ever wondered how to get great night shots, this workshop is for you!

Bring a tripod, a few baggies to protect your camera, and rainproof clothing. If it’s not wet outside, no problem. We’ll definitely end up with great shots, and have fun in the process!

Night Photography - Star Trails and the Milky Way

 

 

 

 

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.

Please see Class Resources web page for important details about meeting place and other equipment considerations.
