Camera West SF at Night Workshop

Good food, new friends, perfect weather and the beautiful lights of the city summed up the fun evening of photography we had last night. I tagged along as Camera West's Hal Kam and Leica's Tom Brichta led a small group of us to some top shooting locations in and around the city.

First stop was Treasure Island, and for those of us lucky enough to arrive early, we were treated to a beautiful sunset, allowing some color to the sky. Five minutes later, it was gone. With photography, timing is all important.

Next stop was Union Square where we had more light and a variety of subjects to shoot. Above, workshop participant John Krzesinski found a heart to shoot.

Stay tuned to this blog and our monthly Camera West newsletter for our next workshop.


  1. I had a wonderful time on this workshop - it got me thinking about ways to shoot that I haven't pursued before, and has me wanting to try out lots more things. Thank you Camera West, Tom Brichta, and all involved in the event. I look forward to other similarly formatted events.

  2. Glad you enjoyed the evening John. We have many more workshops in the works. Keep checking this blog and our monthly newsletter for the next one.
