This week the student had their first lesson at night taking shots from the rooftop of the Wallmart shopping centre near Lihe. The students learned how to do long exposures and also some light painting. They also learned the old adage of: in day time, light can be a photographer’s enemy, at night, it can be a photographer’s friend!. Basically, light is everything in photography, and at night it becomes even more important.
The students also learned standard long exposure techniques, but also the importance of image composition at night. Again, ask yourself what are you photographing and why ? You can easily get a beautiful long exposure shot at night with a little practice, but it takes real skill and a good eye to pick a compelling location or try a unique approach. I try to teach the students that in photography, sometimes having only the technical skill is just not enough !
Sometimes, simplicity in photography is best and this was shown when we used a mobile phone to light a night portrait, easy and effective!
Below are some of the students images taken by Sonya Teeling, Maggie Fu, Jonas Leung and Jimmy Feng. The course was translated to Chinese by HGR’s translator Amy Ho. The course commences again on Wednesday 4th Nov 2015.
