About this talk


Have you ever looked at a night photo and thought, “How in heck did they do that?” Monday night is your chance to find out!

Join five Night Photo Summit speakers for this special pre-conference panel session. Kevin Adams, Susan Magnano, Ken Lee, Lance Keimig and Tim Cooper will each share a night photo from their portfolio, and will tell the story behind the shot—everything from the circumstances in the field, to gear they used, to post-production techniques to finish the job. See the methods behind the madness of images of fireflies, night portraits, light painting, blue-hour blends and a lighthouse long exposure.

Then hang around to ask questions of all the presenters, and to generally just have a good time and a few laughs in this lead-up to the second annual Night Photo Summit.
