3 Session Night Photography Workshop with Lance Keimig
Friday, Saturday, Sunday evenings – April 26, 27 and 28
Session one: 2.5 hour classroom session to cover introductions and expectations, the basics of night photography, and to get everyone’s cameras set up for shooting at night – followed by a 3.5 hour urban shoot with ambient artificial light.
Session two: a 3-4 hour classroom session to review the images from the previous night and go over developing them in Lightroom, instruction on light painting, followed by a second night of shooting in a darker landscape environment to take advantage of moonlight and light painting and light drawing techniques.
Session three: The third session would repeat the second session with a different shooting location and another critique. This gives students an opportunity to build on their experiences and learn from their mistakes on the first and second nights.
Shooting may take place in Winchester, under the Zakim at the new Paul Revere Park, or in the Fort Point Channel area meeting at the Children’s Museum. If we shoot in Winchester on the first night, we’ll use the Zakim on the second. The third session will be a darker area where we can do longer exposures with light painting like Fort Revere Park in Hull, a Spanish American War era fort on the coast or a similar North Shore location.
