Urban night photography workshop

Why not try an urban photography workshop? You can get some amazing shots. Here the fog and snow have created extra atmosphere adding to the impact of the shots. Yes, that is me with an umbrella adding the human element! Self timer on 20 seconds and running into the shot to pose!! That was my exercise for the day! You must use a tripod and self timer or cable release for maximum sharpness. Although I normally advocate shooting during the crossover light period of dusk when there is still a dark blue sky, on this occasion the fog allowed me to shoot when the sky had gone black. In fact, the low cloud added the red effect by bouncing light back down from the street lighting.
