Light Fantastic's night tours are some of our most popular tours. End the year right by creating some night magic. This tour
features great locations and photo opportunities throughout the city.
We will be photographing from 3 different and varied locales throughout San Francisco and practicing slow motion imagery and water reflections.
You will learn to create ribbons of light created by the light of cars using long timed exposures. Learn to create light starbursts in your scene and practice creative techniques called "zoomies, sguiggles, swirlies, and the drop".
This tour is also about reflections and they are marvelous!
If you have taken this tour in the past it's a great one to repeat. The sky can be completely different and repeating a location makes you a better photographer.
You should have a good working knowledge of your camera. Photographing at dusk and later is surprisingly easier that daylight photography. Come experience the night magic!

than the day." Vincent van Gogh
"Thanks for continuing to make me a better photographer. I am not sure how that debt of gratitude can be repaid." New SF Night Tour 09, T. Scussel, CA
"I just loved how everyone was so focused on getting their pictures and always looking for new shooting location. It pushes me forward more by just thinking of that night! It was like we were going to shoot like there's no tomorrow, and I love that!
I loved every location we went. This workshop opened another door for me in photography - more traffic trails please!"
