It was a cold, dark night, yet I drug myself out of my warm cozy house, with my camera, and tripod, ready for some Night Photography!
Twenty five other LPA members did the same thing, and we had fun! Lee Bergthold, AVC photography instructor for over 25 years, and Wilderness Survival Expert/ Master Photographer, inspired us to venture into unknown areas, and we “did it” in the dark.

After inspiring us with some of his night photography and “painting with light” shots that he took in remote/desolate spots, we took portraits in the dark, played with flashlights, made “ghost images” and had fun being models for fellow photographers. Lee instructed us on lighting, using the ‘bulb’ setting on our cameras, long exposures, u6ilizing a projected background, and even a bit about posing models.

Now I’m even more exited about going to see more of Lee’s photos at his December 2nd presentation at AVC. I’ll be looking forward to more photos in the dark/desolate spots of the desert and Lee’s photographic techniques.
