Photography Tour - Architecture by Night

Organized by: Open City
At the post boxes, opposite Lloyd’s of London
One Lime Street

Photographing the City’s iconic structures, the tour includes Lloyd’s Building and Heron Tower where lighting dramatically re-enforces their night time presence. At Tower Bridge a new illumination to mark the 2012 Olympics replaced the first significant illumination of 25 years.


This is an introductory tour led by an acclaimed architectural photographer and member of the architectural photography agency VIEW Pictures, who will be on hand to guide you and answer any questions as you discover the techniques of night photography.


The tour will cover: - Illumination of the City’s buildings and how to photograph them- Using long shutter speeds to render light trails- Optimum time to take night photographs- Selection of aperture, shutter and ISO to produce best results- Your rights to photograph in public


Participants should be familiar with the manual functions of their camera. Cameras not provided. A TRIPOD IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY TOURS
