Meeting point: Elder Park
Night photography requires a very different approach to photography in the day. Once you’ve learned these differences, you’ll be able to capture amazing photos.
The class will cover a range of principles, including long exposure, flash and shutter speed. You’ll learn how to use your equipment and adjust your settings to take photos after dark.
This class takes you on a walking tour around Adelaide, starting from Elder Park, so you can practise your newfound skills on your surroundings. By the end of the class, you’ll have created your own stunning nightscapes.
Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends. You can share your photos with your peers on the Photoh Facebook page, and there's also a Adelaide Photography Group where members can exchange photography tips, ask questions, receive constructive criticism on photos and discuss upcoming events.
Participants are required to bring the following to the class:
Fully charged batteries (and spares if possible)
Blank image cards (two or more, formatted if possible)
Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. There will be a substantial amount of walking involved that night, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.
Let Photoh help you create beautiful moments with every click of the shutter.If you'd like to book for a date that's not listed we can arrange a private class or group class to suit your needs.
Honestly before I booked I never realized it was a beginner event. Otherwise I wouldn't have come. I am by no means a beginner and I really didn't see anywhere where it said it was a beginners event.. So I didn't really learn anything. Sadly. Mark was great, not his fault I didn't really belong there. I could have probably taught this class myself.. 5/5 by Caty Malo 11-5-2017
The course was very relaxed. Mark was very helpful, relating well to the group & the location provided lots of Photo Opportunities. Very worthwhile! 4/5 by Jennifer Tebbs 9-4-2017
Every one I spoke to after the course thought it was great. I was amongst a group of 5 from the Barossa Valley, & no one stopped talking about it the next day. A few of us took away some very good photo's. 5/5 by kim birch 9-4-2017
Enjoyed the night course. Informative, hands on, ran out of time as so much to photograph. Even though I have a reasonable knowledge of photography I am always learning and particularly interested in the night photography not so much of the beginners photography side of the night. 4/5 by Kerry Malec 5-12-2016

I thought it was brilliant, Thank You 5/5 by Kathy Vasic 3-7-2016
The tuition was wonderful and I got a lot out of the session and am encouraged to do a lot more of night photography. I also learned a great deal about using manual and feel I made a big leap personally with photography. I am quite pleased with the photos I took last night. 5/5 by Barry James 20-4-2016
It was a fantastic experience. Group size was great, Mark was able to provide plenty of advice and suggestions. The experience has encouraged me to do more night photography and provided the confidence to shoot manual. 5/5 by Barry 13-4-2016
What a fantastic course! Within the first 15 minutes I had managed to get some excellent night shots of Adelaide Oval and as we went along became confident experimenting with different settings. Mark was absolutely brilliant helping everyone in the group, offering tips and tricks and sharing his photographic knowledge. A quick lesson on light painting and then a chance to photograph the Cathedral at the end capped off the evening. Highly recommended. 5/5 by Vicki Hattam 15-2-2016

Loved it, loved it, loved it! Mark was patient, informative, he easily understood our level of expertise and taught to that. Not for one moment was I made to feel incompetent or slow. I ended my evening with some great shots and full of positivity about my photographing skills. Fab! 5/5 by Colette Paul 9-11-2015
