About Night Photography Workshop

When the sun sets it doesn’t mean that you need to stop taking photographs. The Night Photography experience is designed for photographers who understand the fundamentals of exposure and now want to explore creativity in a different way.

A tripod is a must for night photography as we look at different ways you can use the available light from the street, vehicles or even the stars to illuminate a scene and create a terrific image that you would want to share.

The workshop is very much reliant on the dry weather as we will usually be working with long exposures and some aspects, such as star trails, require a cloudless evening so whilst the agenda for the session isn’t fixed, the techniques you will learn can be applied to many other forms of low light photography.

To get the most benefit from this night photography workshop you will need to understand how to use the manual functions on your camera. If you are unsure, we would recommend you attend the Switch to Manual session first.

The Night Photography Workshop is ideal if you understand how to set the exposure of your camera manually. We look at different ways of using light to make exciting and interesting photographs as the daylight disappears.

Experience level – Intermediate

What do I need?

- You will need a camera that you can set the exposure manually
- A good sturdy tripod.
- It is helpful to have a wide-angle lens and a long zoom, although if you only have a kit-lens then that will still be fine for this workshop
- The timing for this workshop is flexible on the conditions, it will last somewhere between 3 and 4 hours.
- Ensure your camera batteries are fully charged and also have a spare
- An empty memory card, we’ll take about 150 photographs during the session.
