Course Description

Night photography is synonymous with mystery and the unconscious. The dark draws us inward for self-reflection. These themes are heightened in this unusual time of quarantine. For many of us our cameras are our best tools for better understanding ourselves, our loved ones, and the world around us.

Whether we are using the ambient light of street lamps, moonlight, or we are introducing a light source into the scene using strobes or flashlights, photographing at night reveals a new world—one not visible during the day.

Exploring the Secrets of the Night is a six-week, collaborative, online experience with fine-art photographer Jason Langer. Classroom sessions combine technical discussions and demonstrations with image presentations and digital darkroom tips. Jason’s weekly assignments can be easily completed around home. Image reviews happen the following week with the goal of developing a concise body of photographs investigating and celebrating image making at night.
