Unlike many large-scale photography conferences, MOPPA is a NFP 501(c)6. So what does this mean to you? This conference is NOT a revenue stream; yet we still provide quality education from some of the industry's most respected and influential leaders. We are a community, a photography family, helping & learning, sharing & caring to better the industry, the art-form, and business practices as a whole.

    Join Daniel Berry as he goes over his process for capturing Night Photography. Then have the opportunity to try those techniques yourself. 

     In this course you will learn the initial steps to start shooting the stars and light the night sky. We will talk about what equipment and settings are ideal essential for shooting at night. Then we will discuss the different lens and camera choices. Once we finish going over the ins and outs of settings and equipment he will do a quick edit of a night photo he has previously shot. After the classroom portion is completed, the class will take a drive just outside of Columbia to shoot the stars! If, in the event of the weather not cooperating, the class will dive deeper into night photography and go through various other photos and settings as well as more extensive editing. 

    *this class is in addition to the conference and can be taken in conjunction or on it's own.
