Learn Night Photography and Start Capturing Perfect Images After Dark
This three-hour intensive workshop is balanced between day and night and usually starts about an hour before sunset.
After a short theoretical introduction, we’ll focus on taking pictures against the sky and creating beautiful silhouettes.
We’ll then experiment with long exposures and even looonger shutter speeds to create light trails. And we’ll have fun using light sources to “paint with light” and create illumination in the dark.
On the Night course you will get:
- A quick overview of the low light/night photographer’s kit.
- Refresher of all the different focusing modes: automatic and manual.
- Learn how to choose the most suitable exposure mode.
- How to speed up your photography – When? and Why? Manual (M) vs Aperture (A/Av) vs Shutter (S/Tv) priority, and how to use the exposure compensation.
- Best camera settings for low light and night photography – shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focus and white balance.
- How to use Bulb mode and a shutter release remote to precisely time your long exposures.
- Learn techniques for capturing beautifully sunset photos.
- Never again miss that perfect light – apps to help you predict perfect weather conditions and Golden hour, sunset time, Blue hour.
- Lenses – how to choose the best glass for the desired creative effect.
- Art of good photography composition: rule of thirds, filling the frame, symmetry, leading lines and more.
Our Night & Low Light Photography class is a fantastic workshop for everyone who already knows how to use their cameras in manual mode and wants to take their photography skills to the next level.
This course not only explains the science and nature of night photography but most importantly, you will get lots of hands-on practical exercises during which you will learn how to control and combine all different camera functions creatively.
If you ever wondered how to create car light trails, what are the best setting for sunset pictures, how to photograph a city skyline at twilight, or just paint with light, this course will enhance both your technical and creative skills!
The London Night Photography course is one of our most popular workshops, but because we run it outdoors, it relies heavily on the weather. Please travel light and wear comfortable shoes.
During the workshop we will discuss and, of course, practice, some different aspects and approaches to night and low light photography.
It is assumed that those attending will have a basic knowledge of photography and have an understanding of aperture, shutter speeds, ISO, or have already attended our Beginners DSLR or Intensive Beginner courses.
We recommend bringing a flexible wide zoom lens like 16-35mm, 18-55mm and/or a prime lens, like 24mm or 35mm. If you have a range of lenses please email us after making a booking and we will recommend the best lenses for this course.
Tripods are required. But if you don’t have one, just let u know. The hire costs only £5.
All DSLR cameras, mirrorless and bridge systems from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax etc are very welcome. Generally, any digital camera that allows manual exposure should be suitable for the London Night Photography workshop.
