What You'll Do

It's known among photographers as "the golden hour"—that stretch of twilight when the sky fills with the warm colors of sunset and the earth becomes a dreamscape of gossamer-soft light and dynamic shadows. To capture this magical time of day with a camera, it takes a delicate balance of exposure, depth of field, and light sensitivity. Professional photographer Bryan Tan helps you achieve that balance. Bring along your camera and tripod for a stunning twilight photo shoot along the shores of Treasure Island.

  • Learn to Take the Perfect "Golden Hour" Shot
    Bryan Tan walks you through camera setup, manual mode, and exposure under sunset and nighttime conditions.

  • Photograph the Skyline and Bay Bridge
    Notable landmarks give Bryan ample opportunity to demonstrate how the light changes over time, and how to give your photos a greater dynamic range.

Each event is capped at 10 participants; each event requires a minimum of 4 participants in order to take place.
