Explore the rich photographic scene of Waikiki Beach and discover the tricks of the trade in shooting documentary photography during the magic hour of twilight. Explore the principles of light perfected by Larson over 30-years of daily newspaper experience. While students focus on making cultural portraits in the safety of a large friendly group, the instructor teaches the value of slow shutter speeds using higher ISO settings with no flash photography to get unique candid images. The class incorporates exposure times, f/stop settings, and photographic techniques that work in nighttime photography. Main areas of emphasis are in capturing `real moments` as the class moves quickly through Waikiki Beach to make the most of the `magic hour` of light. From the novice hobbyist to the season professional, all levels of experience are welcome!

Bring comfortable walking shoes and leave the heavy tripod and flash at home. The instructor suggests using fast medium to short lenses, one camera body.

To insure your place in this workshop, please register by June 5. Under the new Outreach College guidelines, if the class doesn`t meet minimum enrollment a week in advance it will be canceled.
