Humankind has been fascinated with the night since the sun went down. The darkness brings mystery, fear, and the unknown. And it fascinates us. Everything looks different at night, under the moon or sodium vapor light.

In this class we will look beyond these fleeting moments of time and explore the images that can be created when you expose for seconds, minutes, and even hours with your camera. Gabriel Biderman is a self-taught photographer who has been capturing the moments of time with everything from pinhole to the latest digital cameras. He will go into detail on how to meter and process your long exposures using either film or digital capture. Focusing on Nocturnal Photography, Gabriel will unearth the unseen beauty and creative possibilities that lay between 8 seconds and 8 hours of exposure.
