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 Perth, starting from Chinatown, 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 Perth 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.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.

For us it was the best as Jessica showed us parts of our camera we did not even know about. She was a great help and tutor throughout the evening and the course was varied and interesting. Except for the cold we would have enjoyed a longer session. We will return. 5/5 by Fiona callaghan 4-8-2015
