The longer nights through late autumn and into early spring provide perfect opportunities for low light photography. Capturing low light photography scenes can be one of the most challenging subjects in photography, yet it can also be one of the most rewarding, producing stunning results.
Join me for a low light photography evening workshop in and around Inverness and discover some of the secrets to taking great photographs as the light fades and darkness takes over. Learn the techiques for photography during the golden hour through to the blue hour and how to use the light and the timing to best effect.
We’ll run through the different types of low light, the essential equipment required and how to dial in your camera settings to best effect.
Lights, water and moody skies are essential elements and my workshops are based around the River Ness or at North Kessock where both locations allow for lots of scope for great results.
From landscapes to light painting, we will look at harnessing the light to improve composition and perspective at inspiring locations.
My Low Light Photography Workshops are usually based either close to the River Ness or at North Kessock by the old ferry slipway.
Not only do the venues have excellent opportunities for capturing the the night time lights in and around Inverness, but they are also all based near to water, giving superb opportunities for capturing the reflections of light on water.
The Ness Islands and bridges are beautifully lit at night, whilst the River Ness provides ample oportunities for capturing the reflected light from the lights of Inverness on the water. North Kessock allows us to look at bigger landscapes and with the backdrop of the Kessock Bridge, views over to Inverness and opportunities for capturing car trails, this is a completely unique location.
And if you would like to explore the opportunities to capture the bright lights of the oil rigs moored in the Cromarty Firth, I have a great location on the Black Isle which allows for some superb opportunities.
We will usually meet at, or close to, the location at 6pm and I will advise the meeting point at the time of booking. We start with an overview of the evening and I'm always keen to understand what clients would like to achieve during the Workshop - this ensures that we maximise the benefits of the evening. However, I also have lots of ideas for you and there is always scope for blending your ideas and my suggestions.
Photographing at night in the North of Scotland does mean that we need to dress warmly and have waterproofs to hand just in case of showers.
We will normally cover two or three viewpoints during the course of the evening, all within easy reach of the meeting point and I aim to conclude the workshop by 10pm at the latest.
