Night & Low Light
Photography Course

There is that special time of the day when daylight turns into dusk and then melts into darkness. It’s on every day, everywhere in your city, and it’s for free!

Take your tripod and join us to discover the creative opportunities that these few hours bring to us, photographers.

During three hours, we will explore the challenge that a dazzling sunset or gradually diminishing light means and learn how to turn this into amazing photos! We’ll test the limits of our cameras as the fragile balance balance between natural daylight and artificial light sources tilts from one end of the scale to the other.

After a short theoretical introduction we’ll focus on taking pictures against the sky, creating beautiful silhouettes. We’ll use flashes to provide fill light and to modify the dynamic range of our scenes. We’ll experiment with long and even longer shutter speeds. And we’ll have fun using our own light sources to create light and illumination in the dark.

This three-hour intensive workshop is balanced between day and night and always starts about half an hour before sunset.

What do I have to bring?

  • If you can, bring a tripod. If you don’t have one, get one or let us know and we’ll bring one for you
  • Pack all the mobile light sources you find in your home: torchlights, flashlights, LED light, bike lamps, etc. We’ll bring you all we have, but don’t forget: the more, the merrier
  • And by all means bring all your lenses and fully charged camera batteries
  • If you think you might need a bit of extra help then take a look at our Beginners Courses first

Do not forget to dress according to the weather and prepare for evening chills.

This course will cover:

  • How to benefit from low light and get amazing saturated colors during sunset
  • How to take long exposure photos
  • How to use your tripod
  • How to set your camera for tripod shoots
  • How to do light paintings
