Soho with a fast lens – no tripods night shoot!
Tired of dragging your tripod around at night? Tonight’s session is about learning a set of techniques to shoot using a single, fast prime lens (e.g. 50mm, 35mm f/1.2, f/1.4, f1.8 - NO ROOM FOR ZOOMS!) You know that small, lightweight, inexpensive but beautiful lens that sits quietly in your camera bag? Tonight you’ll learn to put it to good use! WHAT YOU WILL LEARN · Working in Aperture and Shutter Priority · Creating bokeh for beautiful shallow depth of field · Getting depth of field in your shot · Tips for getting sharp shots whilst handholding at night · Creative white balance EQUIPMENT If you don’t have a 50mm lens there is still time! 50mm lenses are relatively inexpensive at around £100 branded and even cheaper non-branded. Please make sure your lens is f/1.8 or faster (smaller f number e.g. f/1.2, f/1.4) We'll be wandering around Soho and maybe Chinatown so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. TRAVEL As usual check the TFL website for any issues that may delay your journey. Alex [masked] Can't make this event - join us on another!
