Night Portrait Workshop in Norwich

Date(s) - 27/11/2014
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Norwich city centre


Just because the nights are drawing in earlier doesn’t mean you need to hang up your camera until spring. Night photography can be an exciting and rewarding style to try and the early sunsets mean that you can get out and try night photography without having to stay up late. Perhaps you are hoping to get some good pictures of friends and family around Christmas or the New Year – in which case, outdoor night portraits can be a great way of getting something festive and fresh. Here at Original Art Photography we believe that you can find something creative and fun to do with your photography at any time of the year. Whether you’ve already tried night photography or not doesn’t matter. You also don’t need to be experienced at taking portraits. Help will be on hand to enable you to learn and refine techniques that will help you to create your own stunning night shots. The lights of Norwich city centre will provide our backdrops.

Would you like to be able to create images like these?

This photography workshop is a great opportunity for you to learn techniques and ideas for night portraits from an international award-winning full-time professional photographer. Joe has recently been made an Associate of the SWPP, specialising in outdoor portraits, as well as regularly winning awards and having his work exhibited both in the UK and abroad. This portrait workshop will help you understand lighting, using speedlights (flashguns), how to compose good portrait images, posing your model and more. Numbers are restricted to enable everyone to have the chance to get personal attention from Joe and to give everyone time to take some great shots of our model.

Joining us on the night will be  stunning professional model Ann-Marie. She is Mrs East Anglia Galaxy 2014, has appeared in print in various magazines and is an accomplished, highly experienced model. You don’t need to worry about knowing how to get her to pose as she has a great repertoire of poses. She also takes direction really well, so if you are more experienced or feeling adventurous then you can ask her to pose in particular ways for you. Ann-Marie is friendly and professional and she will help you get some great images for your portfolio.

For this workshop we suggest that you would benefit from having some of the following equipment:

DSLR or CSC camera or bridge camera that can be used in Manual Mode (preferably also with a hotshoe), speedlight (flashgun), a fast lens (e.g. f2.8, f1.8, f1.4) in the region of 35-70mm (e.g. a 50mm f1.8 would be ideal), remote trigger

Don’t worry if you don’t have all of these items. If you are at all concerned whether your equipment will be suitable for the workshop please get in touch with us. There will be a Nikon speedlight (flashgun) available on the night if you don’t have one for your Nikon camera. For other makes, please ensure that you have either a flashgun or at least a built-in flash. You might like to borrow a flashgun from a friend if you don’t own one to see how you get on with it.

This night portrait workshop will last 2 hours and includes a coffee at the end. We will be based in Norwich city centre. Final arrangements will be emailed to participants once you have signed up and paid.
