Smokestacks and Iron: Night Photography at Alabama's Sloss Furnaces (2 Spots Left)

Join us for a deep dive into composition, exposure, and black and white photography as we explore the imposing industrial remains of the historic Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark after dark, camera in hand. As night falls, we’ll use moonlight and light painting to breathe fire back into these hulking machines.

Sloss Furnaces, named for the influential railroad man Colonel James Withers Sloss, was once the largest manufacturer of pig iron in the world, operating from 1882 to 1970. Now a National Historic Landmark, this incredible maze of 20th-century metal machinery stands on the eastern edge of the downtown Birmingham, a striking reminder of the city’s industrial past.
