This nighttime-based workshop will walk you through capturing and developing nighttime urban landscapes on cinema film with artist and tutor James Harber. Capturing cinematic nighttime landscapes can be exhilarating, creating high contrast scenes with mood and atmosphere. Urban landscapes rarely tend to fully sleep, so there will always be a narrative to capture and showcase through your work.
You will learn how the difference between cinema film compared to other professional and consumer-based film, and also learning about how to develop it in ECN2, removing the Remjet safely in the process. We will go on interesting nighttime walks, where you’ll learn how to expose nighttime scenes correctly with cinema film, with hands on help from James.
You’ll move from the streets into the lab where you’ll be hands-on loading, developing, and scanning your nighttime photos.
James has been fascinated by the stories that can be woven with nighttime photography, and the different styles and looks that cinema film offers.

James Harber is a British born photographer with a passion for dark and moody scenery, and inspired by the classic renaissance period mixed with the recent trend of cyberpunk. He’s been interested in photography from a young age, inspired by his father who would take his 35mm camera everywhere they went. Since then, he has been obsessed with capturing nature and cityscapes, and set up his own wedding photography business in 2017.
James got back into film in 2019, and since then has loved the dedication, finality, and creativity that film provides to photographers, as well as the up and down journeys of understanding and learning from technical mistakes. He loves to make things simple and easy to understand so that photography can be accessible for everyone.
James finds photography as a great way of storytelling and creating scenarios with the incredible night life that many cities have that are often unseen.
