The night time can really transform the city into something truly spectacular. As soon as the sun starts to set and the light levels drop, the city becomes illuminated, and to photograph this is something really special.
This workshop will guide you through the technical and creative challenges of taking photographs at night using a tripod and long exposures.
We meet first at a pub where I will give attendees of the workshop a book. This will be a great resource for you to use on the night and to refer back to when you need to brush up on these settings.
My objectives are for you to take control of your camera by utilising either Aperture Priority or Manual exposure modes so you can start to achieve great photographs at night.
You will be photographing using long shutter speeds with your camera on a tripod.
Some of the things covered in the workshop...
- SHUTTER SPEEDS
- SHOOTING MODES: Aperture Priority & Manual Exposure

I will be on hand to ask questions and guide you to take these photos.
We will have checkpoints along the way in case we get separated. You will of course have my contact details to call me if you need to.
