What you’ll learn in this workshop
This is a bit of a trek if you live in Leeds, but it’s worth every second on the M62!
I’ve watched this area evolve from 1 theatre to a residential area and finally to a Media City of futuristic studios and office blocks.
We’ll be using our night skills to get the exposure right, then working our way around the area finding reflections, lights, buildings, lines and shadows to add magic to the images.
You will need:-
- A camera with manual exposure mode
- A camera where you can easily switch Auto Focus on and off
- A camera which can do exposures of 30 seconds or longer
- A tripod – a sturdy one is best, but any will do though a flimsy one may frustrate you!
- Lots of batteries – if you’ve only got 1, we’d recommend buying at least 1 spare and having it fully charged
