Night Photography 

Date: Friday, 18th May 2012
Time: 4:00PM – 6:00PM 
Location: Lecture Theatre M17, Chemical Science Building

Have you ever wanted to capture stunning photographs at night? This week we’re all about night photography, working with light sources and experimenting with long exposures in different ways. This tutorial will be split into 2 parts: theory and practical so remember to bring your cameras for experimentation! If you plan on staying for the practical element of the tutorial bringing a light source could be worthwhile (no sparklers or lighters due to fire hazard).

* Bring your: camera, light source (i.e. Phone, or torch) & tripod (if you have one – if not, you may be able to borrow the clubs)

Open to UNSW PhotoClub members only. Please remember to bring your membership cards for identification!
