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 (ISO) as the fragile balance balance between natural daylight and artificial light sources tilts from one end of the scale to the other.

Great photography practice

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, 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 exposures and even looonger shutter speeds. And we’ll have fun using light sources to “paint with light” and create 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.

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. Tripod hire is only £5.

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 this 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 🙂

If you’d like to double check your camera suitability before making a booking, please just give us a call on 020 8947 8118, or email
