While night might not be the easiest time to shoot portraits, photographing people after dark is not difficult and it doesn't have to be the boring "flash photos" that come to many peoples minds when they think of taking photos at night. Night portraits can be amazing if you add a little knowledge and creativity.
The lack of ambient light gives you the opportunity to use different light sources, often combined with longer exposures, creating an artistic environment that can take the portrait outside the ordinary.
On the workshop we will explore some of the creative possibilities of night portraiture within a small group shoot with a professional model. The limited numbers in the group will ensure you have plenty of time for practical shooting.

- Great ideas on creative portraits after dark.
- A tripod (contact me if you don't have one) and torch
