Night Photography Workshop

If you’ve ever been inspired by a night?exposure you’ve seen online and decided to venture out and?replicate it, chances are you came home frustrated, hungry and cold. If you’ve taken Using Your DSLR Camera or Getting Proper Exposures?and spent some time practicing, you will have a pretty good understanding of “how” these exposures are achieved but even still, it can be a pretty frustrating endeavour to try and make some of this “magic” happen.

If you’d like to take some of the first time frustration out of Night Photography, pack up your gear and join our instructor for this awesome Night Photography Workshop. You’ll have a lot of fun, take great photos and feel inspired (and prepared) to head out next time on your own.

What’s Covered?

How long should I leave my shutter open? Why aren’t my photos in focus? Why are my exposures too bright/too dark? ?How can I add light to only one specific area?

We’ll answer all these questions and walk you through, step by step, how to take beautiful night exposures.

Exercises may include:

  • Sparklers
  • Silhouette captures
  • Light Painting
  • Light trails

There are a lot of outdoor factors with this workshop- weather, wind, cloud cover, etc so, we promise you an awesome time and you’ll leave with some great shots but as far as what we’ll specifically cover, we’ll leave up to the instructor so that he can choose exercises that suit the conditions on the day of the workshop.

This workshop will be similar to our Photo Walks in structure- we’ll send out information on timing and a meeting place a few days before the event. For this workshop, ALL registrants must have taken Using Your DSLR Camera and be feeling pretty comfortable in their ability to use histograms effectively, and set their exposures in manual to expose for blacks and whites effectively. If you’ve taken Getting Proper Exposures, even better 🙂
