"I appreciated learning about low-light photography technique in the first part of the course, then having the opportunity to put it to practice by going out and taking some shots of the city at night in a small group. The instructor is a very skilled photographer and showed us some great spots to take pictures. Definitely recommended."

Great introduction to time exposure photography

REVIEWER: Marina D.

RATING: 4.8 of 5

"The course started with an outline/ theory session followed by a walk to various London landmarks from the blue hour to after dark. I received very useful tips on how to set my camera, use my remote control, and how to balance shutter speed with ISO and aperture to get maximum quality pictures. The location of all London landmarks for our photo shoot was superb. All in all an excellent experience. "
