Hawai'i Full Moon Night Photography Workshop

Days/Times: Friday, Saturday -July 31 to August 1, 2015; 2pm until late
Tuition: $300 - with registration no later than July 1, 2015
Location: Hilo, Hawai'i; Volcanoes National Park
Instructor: Tim Baskerville

This exciting 2-night course is being held in Hilo, Hawai'i and Volcanoes National Park. The first meeting is on Friday, July 31 at the 'Imiloa Astronomy Center in Hilo, and includes an overview of some recently published night work, as well as classic reference texts, and some hard to find out-of-print monographs. This session also features a PowerPoint presentation outlining the long history of Night Photography, focusing on famous practitioners, as well as equally important, though lesser-known, pioneers of this exciting genre of photography, and a discussion of "Why you photograph at night?" In addition to these areas of general interest, there is a discussion of technical considerations, and students are encouraged to bring previous work attempted nocturnally for evaluation.

Tim Baskerville will discuss in depth some of his images - to aid participants in their immediate 'foray' into the dark, with emphasis on the "mixed" lighting situations that one finds while working at night in developed areas, as well as tips to "mixing" your own varied light sources, and the in-camera "dodging" technique of controlling the overall contrast of a night scene on film. Finally, several hours (or as late as participants want to stay out photographing!) will be spent shooting the architectural and landscape features to be found in Hilo.

The following night (Saturday, August 1) we meet again at 2pm for the review of attendees work from night one, and a discussion of technical material. The rest of the night will be spent "shooting" around Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, and will emphasize "venturing a little further out" into the darkness (longer exposures), depending on class interest.

Emphasis will be on evaluating existing lighting situations and exposing accordingly. Supplemental lighting possibilities will be discussed and demonstrated. Digital, transparency, b/w, and color negative films, will be discussed and compared. This is an intensive workshop limited to 12 participants who will be closely supervised by the instructor, on location.

Students will provide their own equipment and are expected to be familiar with basic photographic techniques. A Suggested Equipment list will be provided upon receipt of full payment, along with a detailed time schedule and itinerary.
