LATEST NEWS - During the challenging times we are all facing in the UK, our first thoughts are for the health and wellbeing of our photographic community and staff. With this in mind, Nikon School at Margaret Street will be closed until further notice. In the meantime, Nikon School will be hosting a range of online workshops, talks and seminars. Please see the website for more information
Starting at Nikon School, this practical workshop will take you around the busy streets of London's West End and end up on the Embankment. We will start by capturing sunset (weather dependent) and twilight images and finally night shots. In each situation you'll get practical hints and tips on spotting great photo opportunities, as well as how to tackle focusing, exposure and contrast.
You will learn core techniques and correct camera set-up, including:
• What ISO to use
• Using the more suitable white-balance setting
• Which exposure mode to set
• The impact of using different shutter speeds
• Dealing with tricky lighting situations
• Getting the most from Manual mode
• When to use noise reduction
Average customer rating for this course:
"We started the workshop with Ricci giving us a very instructive talk covering every aspect of the camera and how we be should be shooting the different shots we would be taking. He then carefully explained the route we would be taking and the best vantage points to take the best photos. We then started our adventure and he was patient, helpful, guiding us with everything we might be needing. The evening was great in every way …I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learnt a huge amount."
"An excellent afternoon in great company with Nikon's top trainers and other course members. A full afternoon of new photographic challenges and learning new skills."
"I am new to photography, so I was attending as a beginner. Instantly felt welcome and comfortable by all the staff. Started with a comprehensive technical brief before hitting the streets. Locations were well chosen and convenient. Ricci was, as ever very helpful and continually walking between the attendees giving tips on composure. This is my second Nikon course, they are such a pleasure to attend, I always come away feeling like I've taken a big step forward. Big thank to the team at Nikon."
"This was my first training experience with Nikon School and this definitely won't be the last. Ricci spent almost an hour explaining some of the fundamentals of low light photography and created lot of excitement by sharing stunning pictures of locations we were to visit. The evening was enjoyable, fun and most important full of new learnings & this was all possible because of Ricci's friendly and professional approach. A lovely evening !!!"
"Criss-crossing London to photograph some iconic landmarks in low light was a fascinating session. The classroom teaching at the start got me ready to capture some great images. Ricci was very knowledgable and professional and gave me the confidence to try all sorts of shots. A great evening. Thanks so much."
