New Orleans at Night Photography Course Spring 2020
March 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
This hands-on photography workshop is the only New Orleans photography class you will need to learn the ropes shooting the beautiful soft light of a Crescent City spring night! Long time New Orleans photographer and instructor Zack Smith will teach you how to get the most out of your camera wether you are a beginner or are an advanced shooter looking to gain more knowledge.
Zack has been teaching this exciting photography class for 16 years now and he guarantees to take you to the best locations while always offering a helping hand and creative suggestions along the way.
We begin our New Orleans night photography workshop overlooking the iconic Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter. We will get acquainted with our routes, gear, and will have time to answer any questions from participants. We will shoot first in the French Quarter, indulging in the fantastic and mysterious light from the alleys, clubs, and street life. After a short break we will rendezvous in City Park at the Cafe Du Monde coffee shop. Once there, we will feast our lenses and strobe light on the lush cradle of majestic oaks, old stone bridges, and nocturnal life only City Park has to offer!
Please only bring your Digital SLR or Mirrorless Cameras for the best quality images. If you do not bring these cameras, there will be some quality and control differences in the teachings.
In this Night Photography Class you will learn low light, twilight, and long exposure photography through the techniques and gear used. My goal is to teach you the “Steps to Success” in getting the highest quality images from your shoot that are suitable for web posting or printing. You will learn all about Natural Light photography using tripods and hand held Strobe Photography!
This class is open to all levels. Any persons with a Digital SLR can take this course and no prior knowledge of long exposure night photography is needed.
Advanced photographers who have taken NOLA @ Night will enjoy familiar locations as well as many new ones!
WHAT TO BRING
You must bring your fully charged Digital SLR and any lens you want to shoot with. Wide angle lenses are great to have when shooting night time photography. You must have a tripod and a cable release is recommended. A small pen light is recommended to see your camera in some very dark areas.
This workshop requires walking from location to location so please pack accordingly and wear comfortable shoes!
TRANSPORTATION & PARKING
