Max Participants: 8
Location: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
I’ve photographed many places in Pennsylvania, but there’s nowhere that I’ve spent more time shooting than downtown Harrisburg.
Come join me for this photography workshop that will cover both sunset and after dark photography around the city’s downtown core. This workshop is geared towards those just starting out with nighttime photography, but photographers of all skill levels are welcome. If you don’t need any instruction, but just want to photograph the city with a group, feel free to come along.
Along the way, we’ll talk about the proper settings for both sunset and after dark photography, different techniques that you can use to get properly exposed images, how to photograph light trails, and much more. We’ll shoot the riverfront, the exterior of the Pennsylvania State Capitol, and the city itself.
While we walk around, I’ll also point out a few historical structures, and give you a bit of information about the hidden stories of Harrisburg. Not only will you get great photos, but you’ll also have a better appreciation for PA’s capital city.
While this is a workshop for beginners, you’ll get the most out of the workshop if you have a basic idea how to work your camera. At a minimum, I’d recommend having a camera that you can change the shutter speed on and knowing how to do so. Since all cameras are a bit different, I’d recommend bringing your manual in case we need to figure out how to change a setting on your camera. I also HIGHLY recommend a tripod as not having one will greatly limit your potential shots, though we can work around it if you don’t have one.
Generally speaking, tours will go on even if there is a threat of inclement weather. After all, you can get some great shots during poor weather. Should dangerous weather conditions or other conditions force a cancellation, we we will have a rain date. If you are unable to attend the rain date, you can apply your amount paid to another photo workshop or receive a full refund.
This workshop will cover approximately 1.5 miles of walking distance. The walking with be done mostly along flat paths, but there will be some steps on the route. If steps are a problem for you, slight changes can be made to the route to accommodate you. Please let us know in advance if you need accommodations.
This workshop also has a minimum number of participants required for it to go on. Should that minimum not be met at least a week prior to the workshop, all monies will be refunded.
