What you'll do
In this experience you'll learn about night time photography and get classic SF images too. We meet at SF's Ferry Building, an hour before sunset. We’ll start with an introduction into nighttime camera exposure techniques, and learn what settings work and those that do not and why. Then dive into 6 ways to ensure your images are razor sharp regardless of shooting day or night. With the sunset approaching, we'll walk down a few hundred feet toward Rincon Park to position ourselves for the best composition & lighting on the Bay Bridge. Next, out to the very end of Pier 14, this time pointing our cameras back toward the city skyline with the Transamerica on our left, Coit Tower to the far right, and the rest of the city between. And before you go you'll learn to shoot trailing lights.
I started studying night photography on 11/12/00 - the day after the photographer missed the big Hawaiian sunset shot at my wedding. Now a professional photographer I have now taught night photography to over 1,700 people. I lead photo tours & workshops via Eric Gould Photography in San Francisco, Big Sur, Yosemite and Cuba. My favorite photos are urban skylines, the Milky Way and shooting stars.
