Capture incredible nighttime images of DC's most exciting area, Georgetown! Join Instructor Marie Joabar for this unique nighttime photography class.
You will learn how to capture long exposures, tips and techniques for framing interesting compositions, tips for street photography at night and more.
We’ll be capturing compelling images of the Kennedy Center and Key Bridge complete with reflections in river. Then we'll stroll along the historic streets and storefronts illuminated in the soft glow of old-fashioned street lamps. Along the vibrant area of M St and Wisconsin Ave, we'll capture colorful neon signs and also shoot long exposures of traffic passing by for exciting images of streaking car taillights.
Recommended Gear: A DSLR or mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with lenses in the range from 18-140 mm. A sturdy tripod and either remote cord or trigger.
Don't miss the chance to take incredible postcard-worthy night photographs of exciting Georgetown!
Participants should be familiar with their camera settings and with exposure controls such as ISO, Aperture, and Shutter. We will not be able to introduce you to this material at this class. If not familiar with these topics, consider taking the Photography Basics class first.
