Start by learning how to operate your camera remotely, work in manual mode, and use bulb settings to control shutter speed. Then, apply your knowledge in the field.
Upon completing this workshop, participants should be comfortable photographing in a wide variety of lighting situations -- with relatively short exposures illuminated by ambient or industrial/street light.
The origination point for this three-hour workshop is the Viewpoint Gallery; where participants meet for a brief lecture. Then we’ll head outside and meander to Memorial Auditorium, the new Convention Center, Capitol Park, and back down L Street to the Gallery. The round trip is just under 2 miles. Please wear closed-toed shoes good for walking and dress for cooler weather.
Prerequisite: participants must know how to use their specific cameras (with full manual control), and have a firm grasp of the basic concepts of photography.
Equipment needed for fieldwork:
(Note: if using your phone as a timer or flashlight make sure it is fully charged.)
