Night Photography

Take the Frustration Out of Night Time Long Exposures!

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! Having taken Using Your Manual Mode 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.

In this awesome Workshop, you will have fun, meet new people, and take great photos and feel inspired (and prepared) to head out next time on your own for night photography.

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

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

Exercises may include:
  • Silhouette captures
  • Light Painting
  • Light trails

What you will need for the Night Photography Workshop:

  • DSLR, Mirrorless or Bridge cameras (with full manual control).
  • wide angle lenses.
  • Extra Batteries.
  • Memory cards.
  • Tripod.
  • Remote Release (for Bulb exposures).
  • flash light and or off-camera flash.
  • A vehicle (in case we need to travel to an additional location).
  • As we are outdoors, be sure to dress for the weather.

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 they can choose exercises that suit the conditions on the day.

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 students must have taken Using Your Manual Mode 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 Mastering Your Manual Mode, even better!
