Students explore different routes through the familiar surroundings of Manhattan and Brooklyn water front areas in the evening. As they hone their observational skills, they photographically capture the ways in which the shifting balance of light and shadow adds to the mystery of this transitional time and makes the familiar seem strange. Participants learn the basics of low-light techniques used by well-known photographers such as Robert Adams to enrich discussions of their own twilight photographic diaries. We will meet for walking tours 3 evenings and in person presentations and critiques 2 evenings.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

For the first class please have ready 5 to 10 jpgs to share with the class. These can be photographs you take of different scenes at twilight, night or dawn. If you’re photographing in low light for the first time, try photographing in places with different types of light sources – some natural and some artificial. Please learn how to set your camera to manual settings so that you can have greatest mastery over controlling the exposure of the photograph.
