Night Photography

Night photography refers to photographs taken outside between dusk and dawn.
Because of low light levels, long exposures using a tripod or steady object is the way to go.
Another possibility is the use of mobile flash units to reveal parts of the scenery.

Taking photos at night can open a whole new world to your photographic arsenal.
The world looks different, feels different and allows for photo opportunities that simply don’t exist during the daylight hours.

In this workshop we will discuss, explain and illustrate the following topics:

  • Weather and Time
  • Use of tripod, cable release, self timer and mirror-up
  • Use of filters (Polarizer, Neutral Density and Graduated ND)
  • Depth of Field, Composition, Hyperfocal distance
  • Lighting, Exposure, Multiple-Exposures, HDR
  • Details, Point of view, Perspective
  • Wide angle, Zoom and Telelenses
  • Flashphotography
  • Lightpainting

I took a private photography tour through Leiden with Harry. He taught me lots of little things to further improve my technical skills. Excellent way to take your photography practise to a higher level. Highly recommend thiis!

Day and night safari booked

Harry is a great teacher. His no nonsense attitude makes a private class very enjoyable. I learned a lot. He learned me how to look differently to every day objects. How to get the most out of my camera and to get the best shot. I recommend both day- and night workshops if you want to grow as a photographer!

Another perspective of Leiden

This Photo Safari is worth every dime. Harry helped me with setting up my camera correctly for different types of weather and light throughout the evening. He is nice, patient, and very enthusiastic about photography. I feel like a few hours of walking around with Harry have made me a much better photographer. Highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to learn more about photography both beginner and advanced.

lessons (beginners)

Harry is een uitstekende fotograaf die enorm veel over fotografie weet en het op een leuke manier kan over brengen. Hij is aardig en prettig om mee te werken.
Tijdens de eerste les heeft die perfect uitgelegd hoe de camera werkt en hoe je het op de juiste manier moet instellen. Dit is iets waar je als beginner nog wel moeite mee kan hebben, maar Harry legt het op leuke en goede manier uit. Vervolgens ga je samen met Harry de stad in om het in de praktijk te oefenen en te spelen met creativiteit in foto’s.
Ik heb enorm veel geleerd en het heeft ook een hoop mooie foto’s opgeleverd. Zeker een aanrader voor beginners.

Multi 4 Lessons

I had 4 private lessons with Harry - 2 at home and 2 foto walks in Leiden. He gave good instructions, everything was well explained. Harry is very knowledgeable and willing to give you as much information as possible .
I'm happy with the result and highly recommend lessons with him.
