His presentation is titled Night Over the Northeast. Mark Bowie has undertaken an ambitious project to photograph New York State and New England at night. He will share the thought processes and techniques used to produce spectacular nocturnal images of the region’s mountains, woods, waters, cities, villages and coasts. He will cover: equipment considerations, determining nighttime exposures, focusing in the dark, “painting” with artificial light, photographing fireworks and lightning, long exposures, multiple exposures, timed intervals and time lapse sequences. He will discuss shooting exposures only seconds long to eight hours, with tips on photographing the landscape in relation to the stars, moon, planets, meteors and other celestial objects. He will also cover innovative night image processing techniques. Experience the awe and wonder of the Great Northeast under the Light of Midnight.
