Urban Noir: Night Photography in Los Angeles


Join internationally renowned night photographer, Helen K. Garber, as she guides students through the specialized techniques of night photography. A collaboration with the Skirball Cultural Center, this special course coincides with two exhibitions entitled, Light & Noir: Exiles and Émigrés in Hollywood, 1933-1950, as well as The Noir Effect. The course begins at the Skirball for a walkthrough of the exhibition with curators, Doris Berger and Linde Lehtinen, and an introductory meeting to prepare students for the shoot. Following meetings consist of on location shoots at three Los Angeles Landmarks, as well as a final critique at the Skirball. Night photography locations include the world famous Santa Monica Pier (sanctioned by the Santa Monica Pier Restoration Corporation), Venice, and the Skirball Cultural Center itself. 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. The next two meetings follow a similar plan, while the final meeting takes place back at the Skirball for a critique of the students’ best work.

Prerequisite: Students are expected to understand how to use their camera, including ISO, speed, and aperture settings.

First class materials: Note-taking materials. Film cameras are acceptable for the shoot, with t-max 400 or 3200 film, but digital cameras are recommended. A mini Tripod or tripod is mandatory for shooting at the pier.

11/5 class meets from 4-9pm on site at the SM Pier
