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

4 Private Lessons

After being bought this package as a birthday gift, I was not disappointed. Two of the lessons were conducted in the house. The first was an introduction to my camera and all the settings and terminology I would need for my subsequent lessons. We then had two walking tours of Leiden. It was great to get advice right as you were taking the photos and then reflect on the image and try it again if necessary. The final session was an introduction to editing and what can be achieve after the shot. I’m so pleased I took the classes and only wish I had done them when I had first bought my camera. Harry was patient and happy to go through things again with me. He was also very flexible with times and dates with helped. I not only feel I got photography lessons but also a personal history tour of Leiden. I would recommend Harry’s lessons.


Oh, let me tell you, Harry is an absolutely incredible teacher! His patience knows no bounds, and his knowledge is simply astounding. I cannot emphasize enough how much I adored the walk around Leiden with him. Not only did he effortlessly unravel the intricacies of photography, but he also painted a vivid picture of the area's remarkable history. I was completely captivated, hanging onto his every word. It was an experience that left me utterly enchanted and longing for more. Harry's passion and expertise made the whole adventure truly unforgettable, and I can't wait to learn from him again.

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.
