This week, NightLife is all about our image. Be the first to peep the Academy’s first-ever major photography exhibit and raise a glass to the best in nature and conservation photography at a special award ceremony for the Academy’s inaugural BigPicture Natural World Photography Competition.
See the award-winning work of world-class photographers and learn how they document some of the most captivating moments in life in an effort to snap “the perfect shot.”
In the planetarium, take a closer look at photography in the dome with photographer Art Wolfe during a special presentation at 6:30 pm, followed by two showings of Dark Universe.
In the East Pavilion, browse a pop-up photography show curated by Lexicon of Sustainability.
Plus, make and take home your very own pinhole camera and create your own conservation photography diorama.
Since you’ll likely be inspired to pick up a camera, check out offerings from photo equipment rental site BorrowLenses.com to get started.
At the Project Lab, learn how to photograph specimens at incredibly high resolutions with Giga Macro and see how the future of aerial photography is advancing with toys and tips from DJI Innovations.
Improve your photo skills with a camera-hacking workshop and marvel at antique cameras with the Academy’s resident photo guru Kathryn Whitney.
