  • Safari/Workshop: After dark: Cities and buildings take on a completely different look and the images will add an extra dimension to your collection. The best time to photograph is around 10 or 20 minutes after sunset. By then the incandescent lighting provided by interior, spot and streetlights will be the dominant light source, but there’ll still be some light and color in the sky. When it’s completely dark, concentrate on filling the frame with well-lit subjects and avoid large areas of unlit space. Night photography requires a tripod and cable release, as exposures are generally long. To record detail, overexpose by one or two stops – otherwise the only thing that will come out will be the light themselves. As with all difficult lighting situations bracketing is recommended. Students may work in digital media or film (black-and-white or color). All formats are welcome.
