Low Light Photography Tutorial
The ability to take photographs when light levels drop requires technical know-how. Join Richmond photographer, Guy Carpenter, for a winter’s afternoon at Kiplin Hall where you will learn the knowledge to help you capture beautiful images in low light conditions.
As well as the necessary technical information that you need to know, you will also learn a lot of simple tips and tricks learned through experience and trial and error that will help your photography.
The Tutorial starts with a discussion on low light photography techniques, then we head off into the grounds before dusk tto have a go, and receive individual advice and feedback.
Ideally you will have a camera with the ability to change settings manually, and some reasonable experience in using it. You must also bring a tripod for this session! Please ensure also to dress very warmly, as we will be outside in the cold!
