Canon Explorer of Light - August 24, 6:30 to 9:00 P.M.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP to email@example.com
In a special 2-hour presentation, Jennifer Wu, professional photographer and Canon Explorer of Light, will be sharing her techniques on how to photograph the stars, Milky Way, meteors, the full moon and the crescent moon. “The night sky offers a whole new world of images and photographic opportunities. We often think it is too dark to photograph the landscape but the camera can pick up the subtle light that our eyes do not see. The seemingly infinite darkness of the night is lit by the stars and planets,” stated Wu. She will also discuss light painting techniques that can be used to paint light on trees, rocks, buildings to add another dimension to night photography. This inspiring and entertaining presentation is a must see for anyone interested in photographing the moon, twilight, star trails, the Milky Way and night sky.
