Despite the awful weather we’ve had this weekend in Dubai, yesterday it was time for my blue hour and night photography workshop at Gulf Photo Plus and I’m happy to say it was great fun. The workshop was sold-out (16 students in total) and the everybody was really up for experimenting and learning more about how to take better photos during this all important hour when the sky becomes a rich blue and everything looks ten times better than during the day. We were a little bit lucky, as the sky just cleared in the last couple of hours of the day and although we were not able to take any skyline shots, we did get some good images of the Dubai creek next to the Business Bay Bridge.
I didn’t get a chance to take many photographs myself as I was busy running around from person to person, but I did manage to grab this shot shortly before the fisherman got chased away by the municipality officials for not having a fishing permit. If he would have been there a little longer I wanted to light paint his chair with a flashlight, but he left rather suddenly.
