Event description

Description

Come join two of Canada's most dedicated and passionate landscape photographers for a weekend exploring the unique world of creative night and aurora photography...being held in the "Aurora Capital of the World", Canada's Northwest Territories.

Over this 3-evening workshop, Paul and Dave will lead participants through variety of night photography concepts, and the workshop fee will include both classroom and in-the-field instruction, slideshows, lectures, and plenty of shooting opportunities in and around one of the best places in the world for aurora borealis viewing...the city of Yellowknife.

Although the structure may have small changes made to it between now and September, roughly it will follow:

Night One - The Fundamentals of Night Photography (Friday, September 28, 6PM-1AM): Paul and Dave will start a fun-filled weekend with a slideshow showcasing their respective "Nights of Wonder", and go through the various gear, exposure concepts, and focusing techniques for effective night and aurora photography). The classroom portion will be immediately followed by several hours in-the-field, putting into practice the concepts discussed earlier in the evening.

Day Two - Image Critique/Discussion (Friday, September, 28, 2PM-4PM): the group will meet up for more night photography discussion, an image critique from previous night's session and have a question-and-answer for any questions that may have come up from previous night's shooting.

Night Two - Getting Creative With Your Night Photography (Saturday, Septmber 29, 7PM-1AM): On the start of the second night, the crew will re-group for another classroom session/lecture about more advanced concepts like light painting, focus stacking, and other creative ideas like incorporating the human element into your night images. The evening's session will be about moving beyond "hey I got green in my photo!" to "hey, I got something that really resonates!". Again, the classroom portion will be immediately followed by several hours in-the-field, putting into practice the concepts discussed earlier in the evening.

Day Three - Group Lunch (OPTIONAL) (Saturday, September 29, 11:30AM-1:30PM): for those interested and not yet destroyed from the lack of sleep, whoever in the group wants to meet up for a casual brunch/lunch before the classroom session....we'll be hungry!

Day Three - Image Critique/Discussion (Sunday, September 30, 2PM-4PM): the group will meet up for image critique from previous night's session and have a question-and-answer for any questions that may have come up from previous night's shooting.

Night Three - Sealing The Deal (Sunday, September 30, 9PM-2AM): Flat-out, in-the-field fun. Five hours of trying various locations, concepts...and we'll even have a section on incorporating off-camera flash into your night compositions. This is where we flat-out create, finish off the night exhausted, and create images and memories that will last a lifetime.
