Cary, NC – Whether you use a cell phone, point-and-shoot camera or DSLR, taking pictures at night can be a challenge. Hone your skills with Documentary Night Photography at Duke University, taught by CaryCitizen publisher Hal Goodtree.


Learn to Take Pictures at Night

In years past, taking pictures at night was the province of a few patient, obsessive souls. Now, digital chips in cameras and cell phones can almost see in the dark.

  • Speeding up your camera
  • Taking long exposures
  • Adjusting color temperature
  • Street Tips
