Photographing the charm of city lights during the blue hours (just after sunset) and at night.

Depending on your level, I will discuss the basics at the start of the course. If you are really a beginner (using the automatic mode without any notion of the opening / speed / sensitivity triangle), I recommend that you take the 3-hour introductory course beforehand.

In particular, you will be able to:

  • Use your camera in completely manual mode : choose the aperture, speed, ISO and white balance ,
  • Control exposure in night and low light conditions.
  • Practice the long exposure .
  • Create beautiful effects by painting with light ( lightpainting ), making light trails , and experimenting with multiple exposures .

We will also discuss the following aspects:

  • Grain and digital noise.
  • Stability: Self-timer and wired or radio trigger or EOS Remote application, etc.
  • The hyperfocal.

We will practice in the city center (district of the castle / cathedral or at the level of the machines of the island).

Equipment to bring: your digital camera (reflex, hybrid, bridge and recent compact…), a well-charged battery, space on your memory card and your tripod!

If you don't have a tripod, I can lend one for 1 or 2 people. Thank you in this case for warning me in advance.
