About This Class

Hi There Class :)

Thank you for taking 11min of your time to watch my quick Tips & Tricks and Learn How to Take Low Light Shots in just 11min. These tips and tricks help when faced with a Low Light Situation. 

You will learn from a Pro Photographer how to take low light shots without a flash.

Believe it or not but, with these tips & tricks your images may even look so good you won't have to edit them.

(Editing is a whole different class on its own)

I must apologize to everyone before hand for 2 reasons.

First reason is because this is my first ever attempt at making a video of this kind, and it was all done using my Android device, And the Second reason is because I prefer to be behind the lens rather than in front of it, so please know that my style of teaching may be somewhat different.

Please watch each video and then try them out for yourself and remember to post a minimum of 4 shots as your project.

I'm excited to see everyone's outcome 

I do hope that you all enjoy my class and that my tips and tricks work as well for you as they do for me.

DK EXPRESSIONS

Hello there, I'm Dale Kopping a 35yr old male born and bred in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Who is an International Photographer that specializes in low light photography mainly shooting without a flash. He covers all the local and International acts that grace the South African shores. 

What Started for Dale more than 12 years ago, as a freelance photographer in his spare time using a 3mp Canon Point & Shoot camera attending events and supplying an online publication with photo galleries has become his passion and full time career.

In 2013 he decided that it was time he did it for himself and no longer as a job in his spare time. So he purchased a Nikon D3200 and 18-55mm & 55-200mm lens combo deal and created his own Online Publication & Blog called. DK EXPRESSIONS.

In just a few short months after creating his blog he was Accredited as the only Blogger allowed to shoot the Kings of Chaos (KOC) concert and by doing so when the Performers like Slash, Glen Hughes, Matt Sorum, Gilby Clarke, came off stage the shots of them were already uploaded to Social Media. That is where each member had then either liked, favourited, retweeted and shared their images with their fans, that they actually went viral giving him instant World Wide Recognition. 

In 2015 DK EXPRESSIONS was awarded the African Blogger Awards for Runner Up best Events and Nightlife Blog. In 2016 he purchased a Nikon D5300 with built in WiFi (which is how he is able to offer clients his Real Time Events Photography Service) and a Tamron 16-300mm lens which is now his main body and lens that he shoots with.

He considers himself as SA's #1 Real Time Events Photographer. He has photographed some of the World's Best Live Acts, such as Steven Tyler, KOC, Foo Fighters, SEAL, Mariah Carey, John Legend, Rodriguez, Mumford & Sons, UB40, Roxette and Iron Maiden to name but a few.

He prides himself on his ability to capture moments and share them with the world as they happen. Where most photographers will have to edit their shots in post production to get their colouring etc perfect before they share them, that is not always the case with his shots thanks to years of trial and error. 

Images so good you'll think that they have been edited
