★★★★★ Martin – Lacock Photography’s night workshop was great fun! Getting light trails and doing some light painting was really interesting. Everything I’ve learnt will be really useful when I’m on holiday next month.
★★★★★ David – I really got to know my camera on this course. Andy & Fiona are excellent tutors and really understand how to transfer their knowledge. I’ll definitely be back!
★★★★ Maggie – I had a fantastic experience on this workshop. The short time in the classroom to set up, then getting outside to practice was a great way of learning. I’d recommend this course to anyone who hasn’t taken pictures in the dark – it’s a whole new world!
If you are currently taking a shot-in-the-dark approach to your night photography, this is the course for you! During our practical and informative evening workshop, you will learn the photography techniques you need to become a skilled night time photographer.
This is a hands-on course, which will demystify the night photography process. The photoshoot will take place in the quiet, historic Wiltshire town of Corsham; a location that provides the perfect setting to try out your low light photography techniques. You’ll be in a small group, and supported by two tutors (Andy & Fiona) who will provide both technical and compositional guidance throughout the evening. Our aim is to build your confidence and improve your ability to get the most from your camera when shooting at night.
To make the most of the photoshoot, the evening will kick off with an informal briefing on the technical and creative basics of night photography in our studio in Lacock. At the end of the shoot, there is an optional Q&A session back in Lacock.
On this course, we will provide you with all the knowledge and practical skills you need to take high quality, well exposed night time photographs.
The night photography workshop includes and explores:
- Key equipment
- Best times to shoot
- Where to shoot
- Key camera settings
- General shooting tips
- Practical photoshoot out and about in Corsham
The Tutor – Fiona Turnbull
Fiona has been in love with photography since her very early days growing up in Glasgow. Fiona clearly remembers her first camera, a Kodak Instamatic and how great it felt when she bought an Olympus Trip when she was 16! Fiona has developed her skills through self-study, attending courses at local colleges & training providers – alongside lots of practice and deletion of images!
In 2011, Fiona and her husband Andy set up a new photography business located in Lacock, the “Birthplace of Photography”. One of the few photography training schools to own its own purpose-built premises, the business has grown year on year to become one of the UK’s leading providers of photography training. Fiona is an experienced tutor who specialises in developing and encouraging students who are at the start of their photographic journey.
Fiona has a wide range of photographic interests and is particularly keen on people, animals, flowers and nature photography. In addition to delivering photography training, Fiona regularly presents external talks on compositional techniques & flower photography.
