This Low Light Photography Workshop will teach you how to control your camera and test its limits in some of the most difficult lighting situations. Low light situations require that you push your camera’s sensitivity to light and capabilities with certain subjects. In particular this low light photography workshop will deal with situations where a tripod is not used.
The workshop will begin with a presentation that reviews basic camera techniques and how to adapt to low light situations. We will cover tools that will help you get the best shots at events, concerts, low light situations during weddings and sports events. You often don’t know what the lighting or set up will be and we will discuss how you can try to figure out conditions ahead of time, or what to look for to help you adapt to the environment quickly.
After the presentation the instructor will ensure everyone knows how to use the necessary features and functions on their own cameras. Everyone will then head down to the bouldering area where our models will be ready to climb, pose and hopefully fall for us. We will shoot our climbers in natural light as well as under artificial lighting to simulate a competition or stage lighting.
After shooting, we will have a Q&A session and a post processing walk through. One of the main concerns with images taken in low light situations is noise levels in the photos. Options for dealing with noise will be provided.
