Street Photography (Evening / dark / halloween Session)

Street Photography (Evening / dark / halloween Session)

Saturday the 30th of October
Cultural Quarter & Leicester City Centre - 6:00pm - 2 hours
Night Street Photography combines lighting, portraiture, architecture and in this fun session, Halloween! In this photo walk of Leicester, commencing from the Cultural Quarter and browsing the busy Clock Tower, Gallowtree Gate, High Street and The Lanes areas we will explore our city's locations and people using night photography. Saturday night on the eve of Halloween always brings out a party vibe and halloween costumes. In this two hour photo walk, we'll capture city centre nightlife early on, and hopefully more Halloween, spooky themed individuals on the street toward the end providing us with two sets of street photography in one session. As a night session, this photo-walk will be suited to individuals who already understand the difference between day and night-time photography but will also appeal to beginners who wish to learn how to create dark and vivid scenes. All participants will learn how to, and be encouraged to take photographs of 'strangers on the street' by engaging and taking planned and candid shots. (If you've always wanted to do this, this is the session for you). Before commencing, we discuss safeguarding and guidelines for street photography.

Very informative and inspiring meet-up. Tom was very friendly and offered loads of useful info and challenging tasks. A casual yet challenging session I would like to see more often.
