Thursday nights during the summer months offer fun opportunities to photograph fireworks exploding above beautiful Lake George, plus sunset colors, star filled skies, and photographing lights around the village or in nearby towns. In addition, the August 18th tour is just before full moon, offering additional opportunities during this particular tour to photograph the moon rising over the lake, and night scenes under the moonlight. The class will start at 5:00 pm with a very brief introduction and discussion, with the rest of the evening in the field experimenting with various photo techniques at nearby lakes and waterways. This nature photography tour is designed for those who are already comfortable with camera basics such as the relationship between aperture, shutter, and ISO settings. A great class for those who wish to receive mentoring while in the field.
Tuition $175. Member Tuition $150.
