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 Brisbane’s CBD, so you can practise your newfound skills on your surroundings. By the end of the class, you’ll have created your own stunning nightscapes.
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.
Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can share your photos with your peers on the Photoh Facebook wall and there's also a Brisbane Photography Facebook Group, where members can exchange photography tips, ask questions and receive constructive criticism on photos.
Let Photoh help you create beautiful moments with every click of the shutter.
The Brisbane Night Photography Class appeared on Channel Seven's The Great South East.

Catherine took me from a beginner only using full auto to a point where I can use manual with confidence & understanding. Also ended the night with a couple of cracker photo's. She took the time to explain everything in a manner that was easy to grasp. Well done Catherine. 5/5 by Greg Fidyk 7-5-2018

Katherine was very knowledgable we both enjoyed the class. 5/5 by Ann frizelle 17-12-2017
I thought it was a great beginner course in night photography. Catherine gave us great notes to read beforehand and to keep for reference afterwards.
She explained everything clearly and slowly and no question was a problem. She gave us all equal help and guidance, regardless of our camera ( we just had a little compact)
She took the technical information slowly, ensuring we understood.
I would recommend this starter course. 5/5 by Annemarie Canale 20-11-2017
It was informative and pretty relaxed due to there only being two of us. Catherine was very helpful and gave us the opportunity to not only take a fair few photos but also spent one on one time with us when we had specific questions or assistance. 4/5 by Craig Pratt 25-9-2017

Good course. Always good to learn new tips and techniques. 4/5 by Julie Horton 20-12-2016
Catherine is a fine teacher. She took us quickly through the basics, giving us practical on-the -spot exercises to explore the capacity of our cameras. Then we set off to capture the lights and Catherine was with us all the way, making non-intrusive and helpful suggestions. The crowds in the city were packed but miraculously Catherine was able to round up the students as we moved from site to site. By the end of the evening we were confident in using manual settings for night shots. 5/5 by Anne Forbes 20-12-2016
