This workshop will focus on composition skills at night as well as the techniques related to taking pictures in low light conditions. Understanding exposure and manual mode and the setting for night/long exposures will be covered during a photowalk around Princeton after twilight. You will be able to create detailed photographs with beautiful lighting effects such as starbursts and car trails and other light painting techniques.
Equipment: Although a DSLR or mirrorless is preferred, you may use any digital camera with manual overrides; you MUST bring a tripod.
