Historic Gastown by Night

This night photowalk begins at the magical hour of twilight, where we capture the rich blue sky and continue with darker night photography. We start by Vancouver’s beautiful waterfront, discussing long exposure photography. We then set up our tripods and commence shooting the convention centre and Canada Place. We then walk to historic Gastown and capture light trails, writing with light, and cover some night portraiture. This is more of an intermediate level tour, but beginners are welcome. A DSLR camera with manual settings is required, as well as a tripod (both are available for rent). In addition to a kit (or wide angle lens) we also recommend that you bring a prime lens (50mm f/1.8 or wider), but any wide aperture lens will work.
"I learnt so much from Suzanne on the night photowalk. She is a patient and enthusiastic teacher, able to quickly pick up what level everyone was at and explain things accordingly. I learnt so much about my particular camera but also things like ISO, shutter and aperture settings common to all cameras. And all this whilst having fun!"
