Dec 9th, 2008 - "An Introduction to Black Light Photography" with Scott Musson
On Tuesday, December 9th, Scott Musson will present an interactive presentation on Black Light Photography. The first portion of the evening will be a lecture and demonstration of Black Light Photography techniques, on how to use this unusual lighting to create surreal, entertaining and even artistic images. Black light makes fluorescent colors glow brightly, causes other items to glow in the dark, and it affects a number of common household items in interesting ways.

After the lecture, you will have an opportunity to shoot in Black Light at 3 different stations, either by using the information you received in the lecture, or by trying your own ideas.

Since Black Light Photography is done in low light, here are some of the things you should bring, so you can participate at the stations:

1: Your camera, with a lens that can focus fairly close to your subject (the closer the better), with a general length of at least 50mm to 135mm.

2: A tripod.

Some optional items:

1: A cable or remote shutter release.

2: Macro lens, close-up filters, or extension tubes.

3: UV/haze filter on your lens.

We hope you will join us for this event, it should be fun! Educational even! Hopefully it will inspire you to try this very different lighting technique.
