Street Photo Club LX | Session 4 | Night Photography
Have you ever tried night photo shooting? We are used to go to a photo walk every week, but the day time is getting shorter, so we will try new challenges. We will go through night shoot ideas and tips. It will give you unique styles and perspectives in your photo album. You don t need to give up to take photos at night anymore! Then we will have two guest speakers and one Q&A report.

Introducing António Zarco s works and Q&A
Born in Tomar and moved to Lisboa at 15. The variety of scenarios and of people were always fascinating, but most of all, the small and odd aspects that make things and situations unique are where he finds the magic. Only later in life, he had fun with an analogic 2nd hand Pentax, shooting without any other purpose than to keep kind memories dear to him or details he found singular. In late 2020, photography started to take a bigger part in his life, when he invested in another camera, this time digital.
It was a humbling experience to understand how much about it he didn’t know and the start of a cycle of searching, studying and a lot of wandering through the streets of Lisbon, where he still lives. His choices when pressing the button have everything to do with emotion. In his collection of photographs one can clearly notice the authors’ concerns, merged with the undeniable eye for the odd, eccentric and unique. The results are often definitive moments.

About this community
Lisbon is such a perfect place for street photography—full of colors, historical buildings, modern architecture and graffitis. But why should we stay only behind the camera? Let’s build a community of like-minded street photographers. Gather. Drink. Share photos and tips. What are your funny stories or bad experiences? Do you have a nice portfolio or Insta page? Present your beautiful work. Meet other interesting, creative—perhaps a bit crazy—people! The goal of Street Photo Lx is to begin to create a community of photographers. We have a WhatsApp group going and counting more than 40 photographers now. If you want to join, please send a DM on Instagram to @streetphoto_lx.
