Haint's They Ain't: An exploration of night photography
This summer, the university offered its first photography course
devoted to the study of night photography. Eleven students pursued
projects relating to the phases of the moon, rural and urban landscape
photography, painting with light, capturing star trails and low-light
The Historic Vickery House was the perfect place to conduct indoor
night photography and the students immediately responded to the
building's age and history by bringing in period nightwear, lanterns and
other items that might unearth spooky feelings in us all. See how the
imagination can run wild just in time for the Halloween season!
