London Night Photography Course 3
Like many major cities London looks spectacular at night. With this in mind I have developed a number of night shoots in London. For this course we meet up at the Starbucks Cafe in Liverpool Street main line station in the city.
The best time for night time photography is just after sunset when there is still some reflected light present, which gives rise to those silky blue tones in the sky. Because of this the start time for this workshop will vary depending on the time of the year.
All the locations are very close to each other on this workshop because ideal lighting conditions don’t last forever. We need to make the most of the light while it’s there.
Some of the most exciting buildings are to be found in the city area of London. If you like modern skyscrapers, especially when they are lit up at night then this is the course for you. These modern masterpieces are fantastic to photograph. We will photograph a number of buildings in the city.
MEETING POINT : STARBUCKS, LIVERPOOL STREET TRAIN STATION. From here we move on into the city of London for the night shoot. MEETING TIME : 2.30 PM
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN ON THIS COURSE
On this course we will look at exposure for night photography, the exposure histogram, exposure compensation, white balance for night photography, focusing modes and manual exposure, creating a striking composition and the use of colour for night photography. When to arrive for a night shoot and how to balance ambient light and artificial light.
Because this is a night shoot a tripod is essential for this workshop. If you don’t have a tripod please don’t worry too much as I have a couple of tripods that I lend out to students.
Recent Testimony: “I had a great time, so thank you! I learnt some new tricks around evaluative exposure settings. One thing that stands out to me is Steve’s personality. You can immediately sense the passion for photography. Steve, I thought you had a good way of explaining the theory and technical approach too. I hope our paths will cross at some point in the future, in the meantime I will be reading through your email attachments”. Ben Cripps, London Night photography course
This course is limited to a maximum of six students. By keeping the numbers low I can give each participant as much individual attention as they need.
