Join us on our most popular Workshop:  Blue Hour Photography.
Let’s discover Berlin at dusk while you learn how to take night photos and get pro tips for your camera!
This workshops can be teached in German, English or Spanish.

WHAT’S THE BLUE HOUR?

The blue hour (from French l’heure bleue) is the period of twilight late in the dusk each evening, when the Sun is at a significant depth below the horizon and when the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue shade. This light is perfect for cinematographic kind of shots.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN

Either you have some experince shooting or this is your first time with a professional camera, this workshops will help you to increase your camera knowledge as well as your composition game.

Have you ever wanted to create beautiful night photos but it was completely dark when you found the right spot and subject? I will help you to understand how to take photos at dusk and at night, and create amazing shoots using artifcial urban light.

Learn how to use your camera to paint with light and create beautiful and haunting images, capturing the Berlin trains running through the sunset before we hit the streets together to test out our new light painting skills in the Berlin urban wilderness.

LEARN WITH A LOCAL

Develop your photography privately with my hands-on workshop while you discover Berlin. We are a group of professional photographer with more than 10 years of experince, we live and work in Berlin and we have created a series of workshops for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels while visiting the best spots in the city to shoot. Using the most iconic parts of Berlin as a canvas, we will teach you the ins and outs of light-painting using a camera’s bulb and shutter settings to create powerful long exposure shots and beautiful sunsets.

HOW DOES IT WORK? This workshops are created for individual teaching but they also work well for small groups or families.We will start at the old Berlin’s Railway Yard where we will have an intro into night techniques, you’ll learn to have more control over your camera and to shoot at dusk and night.

From here we’ll walk to the Berlin Wall East Gallery where we stop to make photos of the sunset over the river. The best part will come when we cross the Oberbaum bridge and dive into the kreuzberg area. We’ll show you some of Berlin best kept secrets while we capture the experience and stop for a drink to check your advances.

WHAT DO I NEED

The night will be long and may be cold so we will stop in different but unique places to get some rest and check your advances, you can pick between beer or coffee.

Please bring your own camera and tripod. It doesn’t matter if your camera it’s digital or analoge. Just be sure to get a camera with a “bulb” option for long exposures. It’s better if you bring your own tripod, if you don’t have a tripod I can supply you with a small one. Bring some light but warm clothes and comfortable shoes for long walks.

WHAT IS PEOPLE  SAYING


WOUT  “Five nights in Berlin and this one was definitely my favorite. You’ll learn basic technical stuff but some esthetics as well. With a cute but basic camera (Canon G16) I took home some really nice pics and got more enthusiastic about photography. That aside we also found where to get Berlin’s best burgers” 


LAURA “Amazing experience! I learned so much about long exposure photography and the basic rules for a great photo. Also, the neighborhood where we practiced was a really cool area of Berlin. I would recommend it if you want to learn the basics and get to know the cool areas of Berlin”


VALERIE  “Cette expérience avec Antonio a été très enrichissante ! Elle permet de découvrir des lieux pour réaliser de belles photos de nuit et Antonio donne de très bons conseils techniques et artistiques. Il est à l’écoute et on ne voit pas le temps passé. La communication en anglais est très aisée car Antonio prend le temps d’être bien compris. Je recommande vivement cette expérience !”
