In pictures: Lincoln at night photography

Night light: Budding photographers can learn to take photos in the dark and explore Lincoln’s landmarks at the same time.

Local professional photographer John Bennett is organising guided walks is to teach people how to take great night photographs, and have some fun doing it.

These photographs are from his initial sessions, which aim specifically to make the most of the dark evenings before the clocks go forward.

“Most people, even experienced photographers, seem completely phased by night photography, believing it to be very complicated and difficult.

“But it couldn’t be further from the truth and it is one of my many photographic missions to blow away that myth,” Bennet explained.

The group meets next on Thursday, March 15 and 22, at 6pm at the Stonebow.

— Update: From Thursday, March 29, the group will be meeting at 7pm rather than 6pm to allow for the clocks going forward.

The emphasis will still be on night photography, but some evenings will be dedicated to specific subjects such as nature photography, wildflowers and close-ups.

Each session cost £10 and will last approximately two hours, taking in as many classic night photography sites as possible, ending at a pub for “post walk discussions”.
