Duration: 3 hours.
Meeting point: Darling Harbour.
Night photography requires a very different approach to photography in the day. Once youíve learned these differences, youíll be able to capture amazing photos.
The class will cover a range of principles, including long exposure, flash and shutter speed. Youíll learn how to use your equipment and adjust your settings to take photos after dark.
This class takes you on a walking tour around Darling Harbour and Pyrmont, so you can practise your newfound skills on your surroundings. By the end of the class, youíll have created your own stunning nightscapes.
Your experience doesnít stop once the class ends - you can share your photos with your peers on the Photoh Facebook wall and there's also a Sydney Photography Facebook Group where members can exchange photography tips, ask questions and receive constructive criticism on photos.
Participants are required to bring the following to the class:
Fully charged batteries (and spares if possible)
Blank image cards (two or more, formatted if possible)
Class sizes are kept small so each participant will have a chance to interact with the host on a one-to-one basis. There will be a substantial amount of walking involved on the night, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.
Let Photoh help you create beautiful moments with every click of the shutter.If you'd like to book for a date that's not listed we can arrange a private class or group class to suit your needs.

This was a great class, we received excellent tips and were spoilt by having student teachers and a very small class for the night. We received one on one tuition from Zac, Chloe & Krish, thanks to them all. 5/5 by Kim Beeksma 31-10-2017

Nick is an excellent instructor. He quickly identified each of the student's needs and tailored his discussion according to their level of expertise. The course itself was great.

If you can take away just 1 new skill then the night is a success. I took away not that one important tip but I was able to connect the dots on some details I was struggling with. Excellent night, great locations and great teacher. 5/5 by Christine Mitchell 5-7-2017
Zac was a great instructor , work with each of the group, I learnt a lot about night photography and had a better understanding of my camera. Was a fun way to see Vivid. A mid week night was definitely a good choice. Excellent communication from Zac before making it easy to find in the crowd and ensuring we were able to move around the different areas. 5/5 by kate white 1-6-2017
Great event, great advice from Zac, learnt a lot 5/5 by Colleen Harris 1-6-2017
I thought the teacher and the content of the course was very good. He was focused on teaching the technicals, unlike some other courses that I have done where the teacher was more concerned about making sure you walked away with some good photos and merely told you what to do 4/5 by Patricia Ho 29-1-2017
