This four-session, hands-on night photography workshop includes on-location shooting sessions at some of Hendrik’s favorite night locations: the dazzling lights of San Francisco and the natural beauty of the Marin Headlands! Whether you are an experienced night photographer, or if you have never ventured out into the dark with your camera and tripod, this class will resonate with you—and have you out at night with your camera on a regular basis!
The class will look at the important aspects of photographing successfully at night, which are different than daytime shooting, including composition, long exposures, camera settings, tripods, and filters.
Technical considerations in this class will include shutter speed, aperture settings, ISO, and other key settings for creating successful night photography images.
Class Schedule: June 6, 9, 16 & 20
June 6, 7–9PM: Meet at The Image Flow, to critique night photography images, talk about techniques, and review gear.
June 9 and 16, 5PM shoots: Meet at The Image Flow at 5PM. One night, Hendrik will take you to his favorite spots in the Marin Headlands, and the other night to San Francisco. Exact details and times will be discussed in the first class.
June 20, 7–9PM: Meet at The Image Flow for a final meeting and critique where each student will share five images. The group will discuss post-production and technique, all the while gaining valuable information from the class critique that you will be able to apply to your own night photography in the future.
“Hendrik goes out of his way to meet individual needs. He will always answer your questions in a thoughtful, supportive, motivating way. Whether in the classroom or in the field, Hendrik makes it a point to touch base with you, help and inspire you.”
