Night and Low Light Photography Course

There is that special time of the day when daylight turns into dusk and then melts into darkness. And it’s on every day!

Come and enjoy the creative opportunities that these few hours bring to us, photographers. We’ll explore the challenge that a dazzling sunset or gradually diminishing light means – and especially in London you have to prepare for both! We’ll test the limits of our cameras as the fragile balance balance between natural daylight and artificial light sources tilts from one end of the scale to the other.

We’ll come up with creative ways to use your flashes during these quickly changing minutes. And when it gets truly dark we’ll get out our tripods and experiment with very long shutter speeds and painting with flashlights, sparklers and anything else that radiates light.


Great photography practice

This three-hour intensive workshop is balanced between day and night and always starts about an hour before sunset.

After a short theoretical introduction we’ll focus on taking pictures against the sky, creating beautiful silhouettes. We’ll use flashes to provide fill light and to modify the dynamic range of our scenes. We’ll experiment with long and even longer shutter speeds. And we’ll have fun using our own light sources to create light and illumination in the dark.

This course is open both to beginners and to more advanced photographers. Pack all the mobile light sources you find in your home: torchlights, flashlights, LED light, bike lamps, etc. We’ll bring you all we have, but don’t forget: the more, the merrier. If you can, bring a tripod. If you don’t have one, get one or let us know and we’ll bring one for you. And by all means bring all your lenses and fully charged camera batteries. Do not forget to dress according to the weather and prepare for evening chills.

What to bring and camera suitability:

All DSLR, mirrorless compact systems and bridge cameras are suitable as long as they allow full manual control by selecting M on mode dial or through the camera menu.

As long as you are able to control the aperture, shutter speeds and ISO – you will enjoy your course! All the technical aspects of photography we will be talking about and the practical exercises will be relevant.

All mirrorless cameras from Fujifilm, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Nikon, Canon etc.. are very welcome 🙂
