Join night photographer Lance Keimig for a three-night workshop among the historic monuments of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

This photography workshop will have both field and classroom instruction. In the classroom, we’ll critique and develop our work as well as study the work of historical and contemporary night photographers. We will examine a parametric workflow using the latest tools for night photography, from high quality digital image capture, RAW file processing, image stacking and HDR imaging. Light painting, long exposures, film technology, color management and equipment recommendations will all be discussed. Participants should expect to share some of their images for review, as the goal of this workshop is to enjoy the creative process and be inspired to make great images.
