|June 16, 2016||Steve Zigler "Night Photography”|
I grew up in the Midwest and I have lived in Knoxville for more than 20 years. This is my home. I got my first camera as a gift from my uncle when I was a kid. It changed me forever. I still have that camera. As a Ph.D. chemist, I thrive on the combination of art and science that creates a photographic image. I travel extensively, especially focusing on the amazing landscapes in east Tennessee, the western US, and even some remote locations in other areas of the world.
This is a great time to be involved in photography. That is especially true when it comes to night photography. Although night photography was certainly available to the dedicated film photographer, the digital revolution has dramatically increased the quality of nighttime images, and simultaneously made these images accessible to a larger number of photographers. Most photographers today have the tools and the potential to create stunning nighttime images. In turn, the true beneficiary is the viewing public, who now routinely enjoy images that were virtually possible a decade ago.
Of course, in the dawn of the 21st Century, a big problem with night photography is the shrinking availability of dark skies. Even the best in modern camera technology is worthless for night photography if the sky is not dark enough to reveal the planets, stars, and other marvels of the Milky Way. It might seem odd to think about it, but the dark sky is a truly ever-dwindling resource as light pollution slowly spreads across the globe.
During my presentation, I hope to shorten your learning curve if you are just starting to tackle night photography. If you're further along the learning curve, then I'm looking forward to sharing techniques and creative ideas with you. Most importantly, I hope to convey the beauty of this genre and to inspire an appreciation of the precious resource we call the night sky!
