Join Hendrik Paul for an evening in San Francisco, photographing architecture, nature and all that the city by the bay has to offer!

To follow up on Hendrik Paul’s successful  Night Photography Workshops, The Image Flow is pleased to offer another Night Class. Hendrik will be taking his students to San Francisco for a memorable evening photographing architecture, nature and all that the city has to offer.

In this class Hendrik will discuss shutter speeds, aperture settings, ISO and other key settings.

The class will look at the important aspects of photographing successfully at night, which are different than daytime shooting, including composition, long exposures, camera settings, tripods, and filters.

Technical considerations in this class will include shutter speed, aperture settings, ISO, and other key settings for creating successful night photography images.
