3 April 2020 Friday - Night workshop
night shooting workshop
Many of my most popular pictures at the gallery are taken at dusk or night time.
This workshop will teach you all you need to know about shooting in low light, then later in the dark. We will also cover techniques for getting impressive shots of stars. The aim of this evening is to set you up to take great night pictures.
We will choose the location depending on the weather. If it’s cloudy we can do the dusk light on the beaches, or head to the ‘bright lights’ of Hastings, or the wet cobbles of Rye. If it’s clear we will shoot the stars. Though the workshops are arranged for moonless nights, I will talk about the challenges of shooting the moon well and tips on how to expose correctly in all low light situations.
There is no such thing as bad light and this is even somewhat true at night! I usually find something worth shooting in the dark. The workshop consists of shooting at several locations, a quick on-the-hoof evening meal (chips or the like) and tea and coffee later on.
At the end of the day we end up back at the gallery where I process my pictures through Adobe Lightroom, which has become the standard for most photographers. If is Photoshop re-worked for photograpy only. It is much better designed and cheaper than photoshop. The idea is you will have similar shots to process when you get home. This part of the day is recorded and sent to you later as a download to rewatch on your computer. This means you can pause or wind back to check what is happening.
I will process my photos taken alongside (so similar to) yours from the day, and show you how I process the pictures to get them looking as good as possible.
