“I Want My Pictures To Look Like The Way Things Really Are”

If you were  in one of my photography classes and, while we were reviewing your work, you were to state that “I want my pictures to look like the way things really are”, I would ask “the way things really are to who?”
My question is meant to spur a conversation about seeing and perception.
While we may [...]

Night Photography Classes

I was recently asked if I teach night photography classes and I answered “yes, the classes that I teach in the evening start  at 6:30 pm and usually end at 9:30pm.”
I misunderstood the question. The question was about whether I taught a class that specialized in creating photographs at night.
Do you really need a special [...]

Photographing At Night

There’s not really any difference, in terms of photography, between photographing during the day or photographing at night.
You either have more light to work with or less light to work with. The bottom line is that you need to be able to evaluate what you’ve got to work with in terms of light and adjust your exposure as you see [...]
