Learn Photography from someone who speaks your language.

Taking photographs at twilight and night can lead you to a new thrill in photography. Often what you find in your image is not what you expected and the scene is completely new in anything but daylight illumination.

In this class, we will be starting as the sun sets and teach you how to capture those images shooting directly with the sun. Then after the sun sets we will capture our beautiful city at night! We will go through techniques of isolating your Aperture and Shutter Speed to capture different types of night time shots. This workshop is designed to teach you what you need to know in order to head out and photograph the world at night.

We will be using long exposures to properly expose a scene and bring the glow of the city to life in your images. The course will start with a discussion about camera settings and how to set up your camera and equipment.

We will then walk along the waterfront and learn how to see and visualize scenes at twilight and after dark, experimenting, shooting and finding possibilities that cannot be found in the same scenes during the day.

Melbourne will not look the same to you in any light after shooting the city at night! So, charge up your battery, and bring along an empty memory card.
