Urban Noir: Night Photography at the Santa Monica Pier


Join internationally renowned night photographer, Helen K. Garber, as she guides students through the specialized techniques of night photography at one of the artist’s favorite Los Angeles Landmarks – the world famous Santa Monica Pier. (This is the first photography class, taking place on the pier that is sanctioned by the Santa Monica Pier Restoration Corporation.) The course begins at Otis for an introductory meeting to prepare students for the shoot. The second session meets late in the day, in the private quarters of the Pier Restoration Corporation, the old apartments above the landmark Carousel, a special treat in itself. After a preliminary discussion and a tour with your instructor to point out the best vantage points, students watch and evaluate the available light, to be ready to shoot by sunset. Shooting continues through dusk and nightfall. Following the shooting session, the students may opt to stay, relax and share a meal with Ms. Garber at one of the restaurants on the pier. The final meeting takes place at Otis for a critique of the students’ photographs. Prerequisite: Students are expected to understand how to use their camera, including ISO, speed, and aperture settings.
