Nocturne Luster

Starts October 10

5 sessions: Thursdays, October 10-November 14 (no class November 7), 6:30-9:30pm

Ever attempt to capture crisp, vibrant images of our beautiful city at night but end up with grainy images with soft focus and dull color? Nocturne Luster, a night photography class for photographers of all levels, will teach you how to capture stunning, impactful images in low light conditions using a DSLR digital camera. Topics include camera techniques and optimal settings for night photography and cityscapes, composition, long exposures, capturing bold colors, light trail photography, editing and more.

We’ll begin each class session at FilmNorth before we head out to shoot – discussing route, safety, examples and techniques. We’ll also spend time viewing and critiquing our images shot the previous week. Wear comfortable walking shoes, dress for the weather, bring your camera (DSLR with manual controls preferred), tripod, headlamp, Light Rail fare, and let’s explore!

Tuition: $270 regular/$205 member/$155 low-income

As a media arts teacher, I am committed to building on each student’s core skills and pushing them to attain more through critical thinking, technical know-how of processes, and understanding historical significance. Having this background, along with understanding context between ideas, exploration and application is at the root of good visual communications. I set high standards of excellence for all my students. Students gain a well-rounded education through a comprehensive curriculum, engaging lesson plans, creative lectures, and innovative projects that challenge as well as inspire students to devise relevant visual communications. I pride myself in instilling in my students the passion for the arts by tapping into each student’s creativity, technical mastery, knowledge growth, and development of individual goals with strong pedagogical discipline.

As a media arts instructor I have worked with hundreds of students who have later pursued careers in communication design and the arts. It has given me great pleasure to witness their successes in becoming contributors to their communities and their families while meeting theirpersonal and professional goals. I am proud to have been a part of their learning processes and I hope that I can share my passion and dedication with your student. My own education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Visual Arts, specializing in communication design and photography, while my Master’s Degree in Secondary Education is from Grand Canyon University.
