Assignment 4 – Tutor comments:
Have a look at the night photography of Dan Holdsworth, who often works with exposures that are hours long. Obviously with any exposure time over 1/30, it is necessary to work with a shutter release cable and a solid tripod but I’d certainly urge you to experiment further with the city at night, looking too at the work of UK based photographer
Rut Blees Luxembourg. Her atmospheric large format images of London use the artificial street lights to give an almost dreamlike and often quite abstract view of the city
