Upcoming Photography Classes

Night Photography with Harold Shapiro

Thursday, June 21, 2018 | 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Harold Shapiro has been teaching night photo techniques for years at NH's Creative Arts Workshop and Milford Photo. Join him as he reviews some important settings and techniques to the craft, then go out with him and put those lessons to the test in picturesque downtown Milford.

After a review of camera controls, Harold will lead the group out for some long exposure outdoor light painting technique down the street at Milford's City Hall and upper duck pond.

What you need, besides a camera with total exposure control, is a tripod. A tripod is a must for getting sharp multi-second shots. One of Milford Photo's staffers will be on hand to help with settings and tripod controls. And we'll break out the BFL light and paint the falls again! Thanks to Ring of Light for this sample frame...

$39.95 per person. Held weather permitting. Contact the store to register without paypal.
