Photography boot camp kicks off at the historic Maplewood Cemetery at 9 a.m., with the next three hours devoted to the theory and practice of picture taking, including photo composition and perspective and camera settings such as ISO, f-stop, shutter speed, and exposure. After breaking for lunch, groups join up with those attending only the photo walk, venturing farther into the cemetery to put photographic skills into use with the cameras and manuals students have brought along. Point-and-shoot cameras are welcome, as are more complex SLR cameras. Boot camps and photo walks are available at the following dates and times (photo walks start one hour after boot camps begin):

  • October 20, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The House of NyghtFalcon

Coming to photography after an eclectic career that has seen him earn a PhD in biblical theology and win a Computerworld Smithsonian medal for contributions to technology, Falcon—The House of NyghtFalcon's founder and head photographer—specializes in emotionally powerful, naturally lit photos that reveal unseen perspectives in familiar sights. His handpicked photographic associates undergo three years of apprenticeship before donning the mantle of full partner. Basic and advanced seminars mix photographic theory with hands-on learning, teaching students how to master cameras' arcane functions, frame shots, and determine the shutter speed at which time folds back in on itself.
