Introduction Night Practical

Course Overview


COURSE TITLE: Walking Course – Night
COURSE LEVEL: Introduction
COURSE TYPE: Practical


This course is designed for photographers with some experience who benefit from learning in a practical environment.

This walking course will introduce students to night photography, providing advice on creative settings combined with hands on practical experience.  Over the four hours the class will visit a variety of locations, each specifically chosen to teach a certain lesson.

At each location a demonstration will be given be the tutor, introducing students to the technique and showing how it can be applied to produce better photographs.  Students will then be given time to practice the technique for themselves while photographing some of Glasgow’s most photogenic landmarks.

The course offers opportunities for individual Q&A: during practical sessions students will be able to ask the tutor questions relating to the lesson, their camera or their aims after the course.
