My specialty is night landscapes with an emphasis on cityscapes. I will show you my processes to generate moody and mysterious nightscapes while learning the industry standards that make your images pop. We will turn on convention and push the camera to capture the best possible images for processing while nailing exposure every single time. In addition, my processing techniques do not reside in the complex, but in simple practices that layer light and brings out the drama of night photography. 


We'll spend an evening photographing in Riverfront Park, and then we'll spend a morning processing the images. The class works best if you have a basic understanding of Photoshop.
