Next meeting -- "The Light of Midnight: Photographing the Landscape at Night" by Mark Bowie

Join NHCC next Monday night for "The Light of Midnight: Photographing the Landscape at Night" by Mark Bowie


Presentation: Monday March 14th, 2011

Nature photographer Mark Bowie, a specialist on photographing the landscape at night, will give a presentation on nocturnal landscape photography. He will talk about determining nighttime exposures, focusing in the dark, shooting long exposures, double exposures, timed intervals, and “painting” with artificial light. He will discuss shooting exposures only seconds long to eight hours, with tips on photographing star trails, planets, moonlit landscapes, lightning, fireworks, city lights and the Northern Lights.

Learn how to capture the mystery, wonder and magic of this little explored facet of the photographic landscape. At night, the camera allows us to record phenomena we are physically incapable of seeing. The photographer can never quite be sure of what he or she will create. That’s part of the allure and the excitement!
