"They are driven by a strange desire
The Carnival is Over
Unseen by the human eye. The carnival is over.
. . . We sat and watched
As the moon rose again
For the very first time."
by Dead Can Dance
"I see skies of blue
What a Wonderful World
and clouds of white
The bright blessed day,
the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
what a wonderful world."
(George Weiss/Bob Thiele), first recorded by Louis Armstrong

as-needed. one-on-one instruction to one-night Introductions to
NPy; two, or three-night workshops; and on to a semester in length
- involving field work, great locations, follow-up critiques, planned
visits from special guest lecturers, and a few surprises! Newly
created, our advanced NPy Workshop, The Advanced Digital Nocturne
explores the nocturne, as captured exclusively with digital media.
See examples of work
created by alumni in our workshops, and read comments
by some of the participants in our various programs.
You will learn to evaluate existing lighting situations and compose/expose
accordingly. Most workshops are limited to 10-12 participants (semester-length
courses, sometimes more) who will be closely supervised on location
by one to two instructors, depending on final number of registrants.
Students will provide their own equipment and are expected to be
familiar with basic photographic techniques. Many of our semester-length
courses deal with portfolio development during the second part of
the course(s). The links at the top of this page will take you to
a detailed description of the individual workshops and a link to
download a registration form.
Baskerville is no stranger to the nocturne having worked
in this area of photography for more than 25 years.
