Night Photography is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of digital photography. Join the award winning Aperture Academy team as we take you on a journey of San Francisco after dark...we'll shoot at fantastic locations such as Treasure Island, the Palace of Fine Arts, The Embarcadero and Lombard Street!
One of the nicest aspects of night photography is that our images are not dependent on a "good sunset" or sky "conditions" in order to be spectacular. Every location offers a chance to be great, every time we visit.
We will meet in Sausalito, have a quick orientation, and begin our journey just after the sun has set. We'll start by photographing the iconic Golden Gate Bridge from several amazing vantage points, and we'll move on through the night, helping you properly compose and expose images you can be proud of!
With Marin in our rearview mirror, we'll head into the city to photograph a couple views of the Bay Bridge, lights along the piers, and whatever else the city throws our way before going deeper into the city to work on longer exposures in and around Lombard Street.
This workshop is designed to teach you what you need to know in order to head out and photograph the world at night. We work on using long exposures to properly expose a scene and bring the glow of the city to life in your images.
Whether you're a newbie to the world of night photography, or have done it for years and are simply looking to get a few tips on composition (and hang out with a great group of people), this workshop will give you what you need. The possibilities are endless! Depending on conditions and time of year, the route and locations we photograph may change. But, no matter where we end up, you'll be sure to receive the same quality, personalized instruction we offer at all of our workshops!

First we'll tell you what we are NOT about... we aren't going to lead you on a cookie cutter, photography-in-a-can style photo tour where the instructor is off taking his own pictures while students are left to their own luck hoping they can capture a good image. Our instructors don't focus on their...
