We're on a mission to help you improve your photography skills, meet your neighbours and celebrate local culture, by bringing together photographers of all abilities to explore everything we love about our patch of East London.
To celebrate our last Echo Photowalk of the series, we've decided switch things up by turning the lights out. You'll be taken on a guided tour of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at night time with Simon Cole of Hackney Tours and local photographer Frank Da Silva. After all, the night is dark and full of... treasures!
You'll also get an inspiring introduction to night photography by our special guest photographer Peter Li and a chance to explore both the technical and creative sides of night photography surrounded by some of East London's most iconic venues.
Join us on a 2-hour walk as we embrace the world of long exposures, high ISOs, and wide apertures, and discover what it takes to snap stunning abstract or surreal night time photographs.
Bring your cameras, along with a tripod if you have one and any other lights (torches, bike lights, coloured LEDs) you may like to throw into the mix. Don't worry if all you have is a camera, we'll have some tripods and lights with us for people to spin and twirl to get some beautiful effects. Ooo la la!
If that wasn't enough, we'll wrap things up at a local bar at 9:30pm, where we can all grab a drink, get to know everyone, share tips, rest those feet and settle into the weekend.
