B&H Photo’s Optic 2021 event brought together more than 40 innovators and leading photographers, many of whom we’ve featured in Outdoor Photographer, to talk about a range of topics in photography today. One of them is Canon Explorer of Light Jennifer Wu, who was featured in our August 2021 issue telling the story of her journey in night photography, “Reaching For The Stars.”

In this video presentation at Optic 2021, Wu gives a comprehensive introduction to night photography, including gear recommendations, camera settings, key techniques and tricks of the pros like light painting. It’s a long presentation at just under one hour, but one worth bookmarking for future reference if you want to learn and explore night photography for yourself.
