After-Dark photography: another dimension

Nighttime in the city offers endless opportunities to get creative - if you know how to make the most of it. This 3-hour course teaches you the what, why and how of shooting on location after the sun goes down. We take a model and position her in urban settings that most people take for granted. But, as photographers, we can train our eyes to see the potential, turning mundane into magic, simply by the skilful use of light and composition. And if it rains, embrace the reflections! In one evening, this hands-on workshop equips you with all you need to know to take great pictures at night.

How the evening runs

The evening is split into two sections. We meet up while there’s still light in the sky and we discuss the content of the shoot. Our first location is chosen to teach you how balancing ambient light with artificial light can achieve dramatic results. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the gear; we bring triggers, speed lights etc. so, with a maximum of 8 photographers on the course, you get time to practise the skills required. You go home with useful reference shots and some cool images too.

By the time we’re ready for our next location, the sun has dropped. Now we’ll be shooting at high ISO and cracking out the wide aperture lenses. What we’re on the lookout for is interesting backdrops and city lights. They’re not hard to find. Shop windows, underpasses, office blocks, multi-storey car parks, passing traffic and more - the urban environment after dark is ablaze with opportunities to fire the imagination. You will experiment with a number of things here: distance between the ambient light and your subject; camera angle and distance from your subject; framing and composition. By the time we wrap, we guarantee you will literally have seen the light.
