Night Photography Field Trip

My photo II class has a night/available light assignment due in a couple of weeks. We held an optional field trip Tuesday night. We met at the photo lab at 7:30 and planned to drive up to Clyde Keefer Park in St. Anthony. The plan was to photograph in late evening light and then photograph a bit by moonlight before heading home kind of late. There were nasty wind storms and rain squalls all evening and it was looking pretty iffy, but we went out anyway. I think the weather scared most of the students away, but six students and I braved the elements. Once we started photographing, the wind calmed down and it was a beautiful night. Because of the heavy cloud cover we didn’t wait around to photograph by moonlight. Anyway, we had a good time and hopefully the students learned a bit.
