Night Photography Rescheduled

Night Photography Class

If you missed registration for one of our popular Night Photography classes with instructor Ken Fong over the past several weeks, we have great news: our Painting with Targeted Light class has been rescheduled to next Wednesday, March 6 at 6pm, and limited spaces have opened up on the new class date! 

This course introduces students to the use of long exposures and supplemental light to create photographic compositions. You'll learn about exposure settings, light painting, targeted lighting techniques, and post-processing. Bring your own camera and tripod and come away with a whole new set of skills to create beautiful photographic work in low light!

We are just over two weeks away from the closing of our spectacular Bruce Munro at Montalvo: Stories in Light exhibition, and this is a great opportunity to see the show while learning a new skill and getting creative! Don't forget to share your photos using #MunroMontalvo or #StoriesInLight
