Home /  Courses And Programs / Introduction to Concert and Low-Light Photography


Getting great shots in low-light situations can seem quite the challenge. Getting great shots without a flash or other lighting can seem impossible. In this introductory course, students will learn the ins and outs of photographing events where lighting is inconsistent, non-existent, or otherwise problematic. This course will cover techniques, equipment, and best practices of low-light photography. Post-processing in Adobe Lightroom and using RAW files will also be discussed. Although this course focuses on concert photography as its primary example, lessons will apply to many low-light situations.

  • NOTE  Students must possess a DSLR camera, a 50mm f1.8 prime lens (or better), and their own copy of Adobe Lightroom. Students should also be familiar with manual camera controls. Students should be prepared to complete some nighttime assignments.
