You are invited to a free live webcast--Secrets of Digital Night Photography
In a letter to his brother Theo, the great artist Vincent van Gogh wrote, "It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly colored than the day." The advent of digital photography has revolutionized the practice of night photography because a digital sensor can record the spectacular colors of the night. These colors are created by light waves in spectrums that are invisible to the naked human eye. For the first time we can truly "see" the world of the night around us.
In this webcast, professional photographer Harold Davis, author of Practical Artistry: Light & Exposure for Digital Photographers (O'Reilly) and creator of the Photoblog 2.0 and Digital Night web sites shows why night photography has become increasingly popular among digital photographers. He demystifies exposure techniques at night, and explains how he post-processes night photos. Following Harold's presentation, there will be time for a Q&A in which he'll answer your questions about night photography.
Attendance is limited, so register now. We'll send you a reminder before the webcast. And please feel free to share this invitation with others.
Date: Friday, October 17 at 10am PDT (17:00 GMT)
Duration: 60 minutes
