A new spin on familiar sights

The Granville Island Night photowalk begins at the magical hour of twilight, where we capture the sunset and vibrant blue sky. We explore the boardwalk and scenic Granville Island after dark, learning the tricks of long exposure photography, light trails, light painting, and creative special effects including how to achieve a shallow depth of field. We will also cover how to achieve the correct white balance and focus when it’s dark. This photowalk tends towards the intermediate level but is also suitable for beginners. A camera with manual settings is required, as well as a tripod.

"I did the Granville Island evening photowalk with Ekaterina who was just fabulous! I can't believe how much I learned & applied in just 2 hours (so much better than just reading a book).. composition tips, lots of camera settings and how to adjust for the various photos. We took all sorts of photos while discussing ways to improve or get different results. I really enjoyed the longer exposure tips - very cool results. I had a blast and really looking to practicing these new skills.”
