Night Portrait Photography Workshop in Norwich
Night photography is an exciting and challenging form of portrait photography. In our night portrait photography workshop you will learn how to balance the ambient light with flash. This will include gaining a better understanding of white balance and the use of flash gels. Images taken at night have a very different character to daytime pictures. It is easier to create a more edgy fashion style in the city at night. Whether you are a professional photographer offering portraits or wedding photography or a more advanced amateur, this workshop will help you to make progress and boost your portfolio with new images and new possibilities.
Your tutor Joe Lenton has been running these workshops for several years and has taught many photographers including professional wedding photographers. He will help you to get the most out of the evening, teaching on the use of light, gels and modifiers as well as exposing correctly for a night cityscape background. We will have a top quality local model working with us on the night – the excellent Danny Dobson. If you haven’t worked with a male fashion model before then this is definitely one for you. Danny will help us create something a little different than we’ve done in previous years. This is a good opportunity to explore different moods and more gritty portraits. Speedlights will be available for you to use along with remote triggers. If you wish to bring your own as well then you may do so (just bear in mind that you will need to set up while others shoot so people get a fair allocation with the model). We will be working in the beautiful city centre in Norwich at a few locations. Please let us know when booking if you have any mobility problems.
You will need to have some experience taking portraits before this workshop. You will need a digital camera that allows you to control all functions manually (aperture, shutter speed and ISO). Ideally you will have a fast prime lens of f/1.4 or f/1.8 – minimum aperture needed is f/2.8 – 50mm or 85mm lenses are normally best although 35mm is fine for wider shots. If you have any doubts about your skill level or the suitability of your equipment, please do contact us before booking.
