Swift Current and area aspiring photographers and photography connoisseurs will have the opportunity to attend a class to learn night photography coming up towards the end of the month. 

The two-hour-long presentation and workshop will be held in cooperation with the local Image West Camera Club on April 23 at 6 p.m.at the Art Gallery in the Swift Current Branch Library.

Chris Attrell is a local photographer who travels all around western Canada, taking stunning photos and teaching his craft to others.

"It's for any skill level, so beginners will really like it a lot because I'm a very hands-on instructor and I show them with their own camera," said Attrell. "Even experienced people will enjoy it because I do go into how I do some of my painting with light at night stuff."

The detailed presentation will highlight tips on photographing certain constellations, the camera settings, safety tips, and how to manually focus when doing night photography.

"Sask. is a great place to do night photography," he said. "At night time it's so calm and peaceful, it's an overall enjoyable experience, it's almost like meditation and you get some great looking pictures when you shoot at night."

Attending the class costs $25 per person and the proceeds will go to the Swift Current SPCA, as Attrell is a resident of the area and often supports this staple non-profit.

Anyone interested in learning night photography can register for the class on Attrell's website, anywhere.ca or call (306)297-9005.
