Foundations of Photography Tips: Night and Low Lighting with Cleeo Wright 


Taking shots of the night sky after sunset or during early sunrise can pose a challenge to any photographer but there are techniques that can make a difference. Cleo Wright, our guest instructor, will provide an overview of tools, creative options, and special considerations involved in shooting with a DSLR camera at night or in low-light conditions. We will cover exposure decisions such as choice of aperture/shutter speed and understand how they impact depth of field as well as the camera’s ability to freeze motion.

Topics include:

Understanding how low light affects exposure, shutter speed, color temperature
Preparing for a low-light shoot
Shooting in dimly lit rooms
Shooting in the shade
Focusing in low light
Light painting
Manipulating long shutter speeds
Correcting white balance
Brightening shadows
Sharpening and noise reduction

Bring your camera and flash for an opportunity to apply the techniques after class if time permits walking through downtown Bentonville.
