Nightscape photography workshop

  • Jul 4, 2014 · 9:00 PM

Come photograph the Amsterdam city skyline during sunset and if we are lucky... under the stars.

Meeting point

We will meet behind Central Station at the NDSM ferry dock at 21:00. That is the ferry dock all the way to the left when exiting the back entrance of Central Station.

The ferry departs at 21:15.

The sun sets at 22:00. So we should have good time to get some nice shots of the Amsterdam skyline during twilight hour.

We will be in two meeting points The first hour at meeting point 1, then meeting point 2 as shown on the below map. When walking of the ferry do an immediate U turn to the right, and walk straight to meeting point 1.

Tripod, snacks and refreshments

Bring your tripod. This will take a while, so why not enjoy ourselves in the mean time and have a small party. Bring along some snacks and drinks, and let's have some fun while taking photos :-)

Preparation material

We will have to get lucky with no clouds to photograph the stars. For those wanting to read-up and prepare themselves should we get so lucky, we recommend the eBook 'Nightscape: A Complete Guide to Photographing Under the Night Sky' by David Kingham.

      As I don't think there will be a lot of stars that can be seen tonight, besides that parts of the NDSM will most likely be difficult to not accessible due to the Over het IJ Festival, I am giving my spot to somebody else.

    so I paid for the ebook by David Kingham online (via the link provided above) but the download link they sent is not working. I emailed them but no response yet even after 48 hours. Did anyone else also try to buy this? Any suggestions on how to deal with it? I dont want to contact my credit card company yet...

      I would try a different browser. I have bought several books from them, including this one and the link has always worked.

    Typically the festival is organized on the parking lot next to the ferry and in front of the hotel. It will be crpwded indeed but we should be able to find some empty spots for the group to work.

    Sorry stupid question, don't answer that. Just saw meeting place CS side

    July 3, 2014

    • Kjell

      Well, due to the festival also on NDSM it might be crowded and difficult to find eachother. In that case, simply meet on the NDSM side at meeting point 1 shown on the map. It is VERY easy to find :-) Will send an email later today.

  • amavel

    Hi where do meet on the Central station side or on the side by NDSM?

    When the weather is not so good there are a lot of graffitis to take pictures of :-)

      And otherwise, the Over het IJ Festival is a nice extra feature; http://www.overhetij....­. It might only lead to parts of the NDSM not being as accessible as it usually is.
