Mar 10th, 2009 - Night Photography Talk/Workshop with Gary Silverstein
There is no limit to what you can photograph at night. On March 10th, Gary Silverstein will discuss techniques for using film and digital cameras to take night photos. The workshop will begin at 7:30 PM at the Dunn Loring Fire Station. He will also provide examples of local venues and ordinary subjects that lend themselves to nighttime photography--and explain why you should leave the comfort of your warm, dry home to take pictures on the next rainy/snowy/foggy evening. After the presentation, he will lead a field trip to photograph the neon signs that adorn the Chili's and On the Border restaurants at 8053 Leesburg Pike (behind the Borders Books in Tysons Corner).

Gary's interest in nocturnal photography reflects his belief that the light at night can give magical qualities to otherwise ordinary scenes. His favorite nighttime subjects include cityscapes, landscapes, trains, fireworks, the moon, baseball, neon signs county fairs, and puddles. When not working his day job, he operates Night Visions, a photographic business that specializes in night photography. His images of Washington, D.C. at night have been published on calendars, posters, and greeting cards. You can view a sample of his work at http://nightvisionsphotography.com/default2.asp.
