“Night Photography.”
(Fall session)

Saturday September 14, Queensbury, NY
5:00 PM to 9:00 PM

A repeat of the popular Night Photography Course being offered in August. This one is very similar but it coincides with the arrival of the Full Harvest Moon which arrives at Sunset. The course content is more or less the same but we will adventure into different areas to give students more exposure to photographing at night. Students of the first course are welcome to enroll for the second, but please be mindful that there will most likely be some overlap in the opening course content due to the technical nature of night photograph and the need to bring students up to a standard level of knowledge about how to approach this exciting area of photography.

For intermediate level to advanced level.
