The shooting portion of the workshop will take place at the Sutro Baths, at the very edge of San Francisco. Built in the late 1800s, all that remains of the Sutro Baths are concrete ruins. This is an inspiring and dramatic location to learn night photography, using natural light and/or light painting techniques.
