Teacher: Jack Carlson

What you'll learn in this photography class:

When the sun drops below the horizon, bring the Garden to life by photographing your selected subject with a beam of light. Moving a light source during a long exposure creates a look that can only be obtained by using light as a brush. Students must have a DSLR camera (no phones or tablets, please) and a sturdy tripod. A cable or remote shutter release is helpful but not required.
