Join Professional Photographer Paul Miguel for a Creative Night Photography Workshop in West Yorkshire.
Join me on a small group Night Photography Workshop. We use two locations for our night shoots – the magnificent Millenium Bridge in Castleford and the Canal Basin at Skipton. For both workshops we start before sunset with a briefing allowing us to capture images during the blue hour before dull darkness sets in.
Millenium Bridge over the River Aire lends itself to some fabulous compositions, particularly when lit up at night. We’ll photograph the modern bridge and historic mill, surrounded by flowing water catching colourful reflections. Here we’ll be joined by Nik Goulthorp, an experienced photographer with a particular passion for night photography.
At Skipton we capture images of the canal boats reflected in the still waters. The cobbled streets of this historic market town also provide good material, not to mention the magnificent castle.
With a maximum of 4 clients you’ll receive plenty of personal attention.
You’ll learn all the techniques of successful night photography, including focusing techniques, composition and accurate exposures. Night photography is all about long shutter speeds. Often we shoot exposures of around 20 seconds but it will help if your camera is capable of a ‘bulb’ exposure. You’ll also need a way of firing the shutter such as remote release, or timer. A head-torch is also advised. A sturdy tripod is essential.
These Night Photography Courses can also be booked on a One to One basis.
Disclaimer: Night photography can become addictive!
