Blue Hour in Belfast – Thursday 24th September 2020

Home | Intermediate Photography Courses  | Blue Hour in Belfast – Thursday 24th September 2020

Blue Hour is the perfect time for stunning nightscapes, especially in the city.

The Blue Hour (it’s usually much shorter than an hour!) is that magic time when the sun has dipped below the horizon and the sky turns a cool, crisp blue colour before it gets dark and night sets in.

We will meet up, do an equipment check and plan our shoot. We will visit different locations around the City Centre, capturing images as the city falls into darkness. Sunset is at 7.16 pm that day so plenty of time to get ourselves in the best vantage point for sunset and Blue hour photographs. We will then head to a local cafe for some hot drinks (included in price) and spend the rest of our time together looking at post-processing techniques in Lightroom to enhance the images taken. A great opportunity to add some dramatic Blue Hour Cityscape photographs to your portfolio.

Is this the right Photography Workshop for me?

Experience Required

Although it is not a necessity, to get the most from this photography course you should have previously attended my Get More from Your Camera photography course – OR – be familiar and confident with the use of Aperture Priority, Exposure Compensation and ISO.

What Equipment do I need?

This photography course is suitable for those with DSLR or Compact System Cameras.
A sturdy tripod is ESSENTIAL for this workshop.
A wide-angle zoom lens would be useful although a standard “kit zoom” will be suitable.

You will need to dress in suitable clothing for an outdoor photoshoot at night – it could get cold!! There is a small amount of walking during this workshop so a reasonable level of fitness is required.

What you will learn

During this course, we will look at the step to step process of creating stunning cityscape photographs during sunset and Blue Hour. We will be looking at different composition techniques, working in manual mode, using long exposure techniques and quick editing techniques in Lightroom to make the most of your images.
