Night Photography is more like poetry than it is photography.  Each image brings out things you simply don’t see in an object during the day.  You will learn about the equipment and techniques used to capture images at night as well as how to paint with light, how to best shoot star trails, fireworks and HDR images at night.  We will also have several short demonstrations to help you understand the concepts.

The class instructor, Cliff Loehr, is a photo hobbyist and a member of the Huntsville Photographic Society.  As a software engineer by day, Cliff enjoys mixing his technical and artistic skills required for photography at night.

The class is free and sign up is required. Sign up for the class at the Murphy Library front desk or by calling 256-881-5620. Space is limited. Read more about Night Photography Class

Title: 
Explosive Eighteen

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read a Stephanie Plum mystery, Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich

Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 from Hawaii to Newark, she's knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, she's flying back to New Jersey solo, and someone who sounds like Sasquatch is snoring in row 22. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he's dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. The FBI, the fake FBI, and guns-for-hire are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying. Only one other person has seen the missing photograph--Stephanie Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn't intend to end up in a garbage can.  Read more about Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
