“Finding Your Way in the Dark: Workflow for Night Photography from Capture to Print” 
Lance Keimig and Scott Martin team up with the Texas Photographic Society to present a four day photography workshop in Big Bend National Park, Texas, October 11-14, 2008.

This workshop will have both field and classroom instruction. We will be in the classroom each day from noon until we leave for the field before sunset. Participants can stay out shooting as long as they, or their camera’s batteries, hold out. While in the field each day, photographic techniques and creative inspiration will be discussed, demonstrated and put into practice. Techniques and inspiration will be constantly discussed, demonstrated and put into practice. We will all work closely together, sharing our knowledge and experience. Lance brings his extensive experience with night photography to the workshop with composition techniques, night photography guidelines and inspiring slides shows of historical and contemporary night photography. Scott brings his digital imaging training experience and takes an in depth look at the entire digital imaging workflow from capture to print with night photography in mind. We will examine the skills necessary for high quality digital image capture, RAW file processing and fine art printing. We will also examine the history of digital fine art printing processes, and look at all the processes available today. RIPs, ink technology, color management and recommendations will all be discussed.

This workshop is specifically for digital photographers who want to learn night photography techniques, from exposure to image processing and printmaking. Contrast, atmosphere, light sources, equipment choices, painting with light, and subject matter at night are some of the things this class will cover. We expect that beginners and seasoned digital imaging professionals alike will benefit from the course. Participants should expect to share some of their images for review, as the goal of this workshop is to enjoy the creative process, learn from each other and to grow as image makers.


Guests will either camp, or stay at the Chisos Mountains Lodge, the only lodging available in the park. Both conveniently located near food service, a convenience store, gift shop, trail heads and other guest services. The cost to stay at the lodge is $225 per person with 2 people sharing a room, or $450 for a single room.


The price for the workshop is $950 plus lodging. Clarke Evans at the Texas Photographic Society is handling the registration and lodging reservations for this workshop. You can call him at 210-824-4123 or email him at clarke@texasphoto.org
