Urban Night and Low Light Workshop @ PrairieView School of Photography

Explore the exciting possibilities of night photography within the urban landscape of Winnipeg with PrairieView instructor, Sarah Hodges-Kolisnyk. Learn the essential techniques of producing stunning night and low light photographs with film or digital cameras (all types welcome...film, point & shoot, DSLR).

We will start with an hour of classroom instruction where we will learn how to create images of colourful urban street scenes and the nightlife of the city. We will then head out to put our newly acquired skills to use for an hour and a half guided shoot. This will be followed by an image review back at PrairieView where we will share and review our images in a constructive, supportive critique session.

The cost is $35.  **YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER AND PRE-PAY WITH THE SCHOOL BEFORE RSVPING YES TO THIS EVENT**  We need a MINIMUM of 15 people to run this workshop!

    What a great opportunity to learn more about shooting at night. The 1 hour course was very helpful to me - who doesn't ever shoot in the dark. Reminders of fstops and shutter speeds is always valuable. Inspiring works also helpful. I really enjoyed going out in a group, on a Saturday night in downtown Winnipeg. I really got caught up in the exercise of shooting and wanting to improve my pictures. Sarah was very helpful for that. I appreciated the exercise and even though my photos didn't turn out (but maybe next time) I learned a lot. I loved having an excuse to be downtown on a Saturday night.! Thank you Holly and organizers.

    As a total beginner I found this meet up a tad overwhelming. There was lots to learn so I found it tricky to get any shots I was pleased with. It was also a pretty chilly evening to be standing still for long periods outside. That said, everyone was very helpful and I picked up some good tips for next time. :)

    Tomorrow we can expect some rain...so please dress appropriately for the weather. I don't know if the plan is still to be outside or what if it's raining, but it's best to be prepared.

      Bring a plastic trash bag with you. We can ask the instructor to show us how to protect our cameras with it. It's quite simple and so effective.
