Norfolk Night Industrial and Photography Workshop

Norfolk Night Industrial Photography Workshop is a opportunity for you to photograph some of Norfolk’s industrial locations and mixing up things with a mixture of stunning artificial and ambient light.

For many years this has been our tutor Dibs’s favourite genre of shooting. With quiet streets and a great mixture of colours created with a drop of rather interesting architecture the shadows and highlights makes for very creative shots. This leads for atmospheric shots that are not seen by many due to being tucked up in bed.

We will take you to the some of the interesting locations in Norfolk and give you the guidance to quickly improve your composition and technical ability.

                                                                                                                                             yarmouth at night taxi rank with the power station in the background in the fog

During the Norfolk Night Industrial Photography Workshop session:

Throughout the night we will decide on the next location, we will then move onto to the next location to accommodate the needs of the group.

The workshop will start  at 8pm at the 1st location and will finish around 1am at the last location.

We will walk and drive between some of the locations during the session.

We will then drive to one of the many local derelict churches or similar structures that are dotted around the Countryside. Here we will teach you how to mix off camera flash with ambient light to create striking thought provoking images.

The benefits of the different equipment to use for shooting in varying conditions and how to use it correctly.

Show you how to use flash light or Continuous Lighting to illuminate part of the shots.

Cover how to focus in the dark

Looking at compositions and avoiding flare created by street lights

The importance of ISO
