8. Night Photo Walk - Learn to photograph at night using timed exposures  


The bright lights of South Beach make an excellent location for night photography.  Learn to capture the city lights as well as other creative tricks.  Your workshop begins with a brief discussion on night photography and camera settings.  You will then head out to practice on location on Ocean Drive and the surrounding areas with time for questions and feedback.    This workshop is best for those with an SLR or a camera that can fully manipulate iso, aperture and shutter speed.   Your camera should function on a timer setting or have a cable release. You will need a tripod as well and you may want to bring along a flashlight.   In order to get the most out of this workshop, it is best if you have an idea of the functions on your camera and an understanding of how aperture, shutter speed, and ISO work in conjunction to determine the proper exposure of an image. If you are not very familiar with your camera's functions, you may wish to take our Break Out of Auto Mode Workshop before taking the Night Photography Workshop. 

What Is Not Included?
Cameras are not included; you must provide your own. An SLR or other type of camera that can fully manipulate aperture and shutter speed is needed for this workshop.                     
Food and beverages are not included.  Feel free to bring your own or purchase some during the workshop.
