Learn how to make beautiful night photography.


What you’ll learn:

  • Choos­ing a meter­ing mode for low-light con­di­tions
  • Using expo­sure com­pen­sa­tion for night pho­tog­ra­phy
  • The impor­tance of man­u­al focus­ing in the dark
  • Set­ting the prop­er white bal­ance for city lights
  • Bal­anc­ing ISO, aper­ture and shut­ter speed in low light con­di­tions
  • Using a tri­pod to cre­ate light streaks and avoid­ing cam­era shake


Tak­ing a night pho­tog­ra­phy course with prac­ti­cal exer­cis­es is a great way to learn the skills and tech­niques you need to cap­ture stun­ning and expres­sive night pho­tos. In the les­son, you’ll learn how to choose the cor­rect meter­ing mode for low-light con­di­tions, how to use expo­sure com­pen­sa­tion to adjust the expo­sure of your images, and how to set the right white bal­ance for city lights. You’ll also learn the impor­tance of man­u­al focus­ing in the dark and bal­anc­ing ISO, aper­ture, and shut­ter speed in low light con­di­tions to get the best results.

In addi­tion to learn­ing these tech­ni­cal skills, you’ll also have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to put your new skills into prac­tice through prac­ti­cal exer­cis­es. You’ll learn how to use a tri­pod to cre­ate light streaks and avoid cam­era shake, and you’ll have the chance to shoot var­i­ous sub­jects and scenes under the guid­ance of an expe­ri­enced instruc­tor. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in prac­ti­cal exer­cis­es gives you a hands-on, immer­sive learn­ing expe­ri­ence that will help you devel­op your skills and unleash your cre­ative poten­tial as a night pho­tog­ra­ph­er.

The scope of our photography lessons

At Expo­sure Ther­a­py’s pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es, I focus on build­ing a strong foun­da­tion in pho­tog­ra­phy that will work well with most cam­eras. How­ev­er, to ensure a con­sis­tent and pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence for all par­tic­i­pants, I can­not cov­er every fea­ture of every cam­era. If you have an advanced cam­era and would like to learn more, I’d be hap­py to offer pri­vate pho­tog­ra­phy lessons that explore those fea­tures in more depth.

What to wear

This is an out­door pho­tog­ra­phy work­shop, so it’s essen­tial to check the weath­er fore­cast and dress appro­pri­ate­ly for the con­di­tions on the day of the work­shop. This is espe­cial­ly impor­tant on wet days, so bring weath­er-appro­pri­ate cloth­ing to stay com­fort­able and pro­tect your equip­ment.2To ensure the best per­for­mance of your cam­era dur­ing the work­shop, I rec­om­mend bring­ing two or more ful­ly charged bat­ter­ies.

Meeting point and workshop location

My work­shops are held out­side and involve walk­ing to dif­fer­ent loca­tions. Please note that some places we vis­it may not be ful­ly acces­si­ble.

In the event of bad weath­er, I may need to change the meet­ing loca­tion for the work­shop. I’ll inform you in advance if this hap­pens and will ensure the new loca­tion is easy to get to by pub­lic trans­porta­tion.

Cancellation and refunds

Satisfaction guarantee

We want to ensure that you ful­ly under­stand the mate­ri­als cov­ered in our pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es. If you aren’t com­plete­ly sat­is­fied with your learn­ing expe­ri­ence, please let your instruc­tor know imme­di­ate­ly after your work­shop con­cludes. We’re more than hap­py to address any points of con­fu­sion on the spot or to offer you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to repeat the same work­shop on a future date (pend­ing avail­abil­i­ty).

Cancellations, refunds, and rescheduling

My full can­cel­la­tion and refund pol­i­cy is found in the Terms of Sale. The fol­low­ing sum­ma­ry is for your con­ve­nience:

  • All sales are final, and no refunds are giv­en if you can­cel.
  • If unex­pect­ed issues occur, you can resched­ule up to 24 hours before your group pho­tog­ra­phy work­shop is sched­uled to start.
