To participate in the Low Level Light and Night Photography Workshop, you will require a level of knowledge equal to completing the Beginner Photography Course. This means, you must have a good understanding and working knowledge of your camera and Aperture, ISO, Shutter Speed and how/ where and why to use them. If you are on Scene, Auto or P mode, please complete either the Beginner Course or the Photography on the Move tour first. Another option is to take a Personal Photography Tuition session to fill any gaps in your knowledge, plus run a combined day and night event designed for you, 7 days a week.
Please note, this Workshop will last for approx 3 hours and doesn’t involve a full Tour.
We do move around, but we don’t cover as much ground as a full tour, as the aim of the workshop is to take our time to practice techniques utilising slower or faster shutter speeds, and improve skill level instead. We concentrate on the area between London Bridge and Tower Bridge which has a wealth of subjects.
A sturdy tripod that extends over 140cm (before extending the centre pole) is required for Night Photography. If you do not have one, we can hire them to you for an extra £7 for the night.
Time: Start time will vary depending on sunset time, so please see the dates listed above for the meeting time.
Duration: 3 hours
Where: Meet inside the London Bridge train station hall. We’ll be at the front of Marks and Spencer Simply Food shop near the entry to platforms 13 – 15 and wearing the red/white Hairy Goat uniform.
Cost: £110 per person. Can you bring a friend or family member free of charge? Sorry, no. Everyone on the tour pays full price whether they are using their own camera or sharing a camera or don’t have a camera.
Maximum attendees: 6. We do not have large groups as we want to ensure you get the attention you deserve.
Twice a month we will still run the 3 hour Low Level Light & Night Photography Workshop which is solely for Night Photography. If you have mastered Aperture, ISO & Shutter Speed, but still have a few gaps in your knowledge, consider the Advanced & Night Photography Course and cover the remaining day and night subjects in the 1 x 5 hour course.
