Night Photo Summit 2022: Inspiring night photographers across the galaxy

The well-respected National Parks at Night held their first Night Photo Summit last year. This was a great success. Consequently, they’ve decided to hold another Night Photo Summit this year as well. I am also deeply honored to say that I am one of the 25 presenters.  My presentation will be “How to Use Light Painting Angles to Create Detail, Texture, and Drama”.

What is National Parks at Night?

National Parks at Night hold night photography workshops that provide top-shelf education both in the classroom and in the field, and are arguably the best in the world at doing so. They also have an extremely informative blog.

What is Night Photo Summit 2022?

A couple of years ago, National Parks at Night had been wanting to hold an in-person event, but decided not to wait and hold a virtual event instead. This event will have 40 classes with over 25 speakers discussing a wide range of topics on all things night photography. This includes NPAN’s own elite group of instructors. 

The speakers will include not only night photographers, but also astrophysicists, writers, artists and rangers. They will speak about astronomy, dark skies, creativity and of course photo techniques — both in the field and post-processing.

There are video presentations and classes for all levels, including beginners, intermediate, and those looking to hone their skills even more. The presentations include such disparate topics as creating time-lapses, photographing fireflies, photographing the Milky Way, night portraiture, and more. Every presentation will have live chat opportunities. 

Additionally, there will also be unscripted panel discussions, virtual parties, and networking opportunities. 

Everyone who purchases this will get access to full streaming access of all videos for the next year.
