Our exciting night of guided photography instruction begins downtown Louisville, near the Galt House. We'll meet up, introduce ourselves to each other, and unpack our gear. I will help you set up your camera and tripod, and we'll begin long-exposure photography of the busy city streets. Next we'll make our way to the waterfront, offering a beautiful view of the Ohio River, the Belle of Louisville and the George Rogers Clark Memorial Bridge. Here, we will discuss the fundamentals of photography-and how you can create postcard-worthy nighttime images. From this vantage point, you'll be free to photograph larger-than-life historical statues, bridges, plazas and architecture. Our third stop is a short 10 minute walk into downtown, where we will work near and under the 2nd street bridge, and Whiskey Row, incorporating some very unique architecture into our night. You'll learn more about your camera settings, including ISO, aperture, shutter speed and white balance, and be challenged with varying light intensities, which will produce some creative and impressive images. Essentials for this experience are a camera that allows manual settings, and a tripod.
Hi! My name is Chad J - I am a professional photographer in Louisville, Kentucky, with over 20 years of experience. As a former college professor, I taught darkroom & digital photography, and my work has been published locally and nationally...from brides to world leaders. One of my passions is night-time architecture and street photography! I love capturing cityscapes and urban architecture in unique and creative ways, using long-exposure photography! I personally use Canon equipment, but I am fluent with many brands. I am ready to help you see the everyday, in a new way!
I will provide a bottle of water and an assortment of KIND bars during our three-hour experience.
