Event description

Description

Join us at Killhope Lead Mining Museum for a night photography workshop.

We'll have access to all the outdoor parts of the site, plus the interiors of the most photogenic buildings, such as the jigger house (the big building the wheel is attached to).

The workshop will run from 8pm to 11pm, on September 30th. It'll be 5 days before the full moon (great time to photograph it). The Sun will already have set (6.46pm) and the Moon will reach its highest point at 9pm.

The bulk of the tuition will focus on capturing architecture and landscapes, by moonlight. You'll also have the opportunity to learn how to use torches and other light sources to 'light paint' the landscape, buildings and machinery.

I have a large telescope (10" Dobsonian) at the Killhope site, which we'll get out. I also have some long lenses which will fit any camera with a t-mount, for capturing detail on the Moon's surface (I have mounts for Canon and Nikon DLSRs - please ask if you want to know if the lenses will fit your camera).

There will be up to 24 photographers, plus tutors/assistants. Once the tickets have gone, that's it. I can't create any more places, because part of the benefit of such a small group is the ability to make sure people aren't wandering into your shots all the time :)

I'll be providing tuition and one-to-one support, and you'll have assistance from experienced photographers. If it's a big group there will be at least two trainers - more likely three of us.

Much of the cost of this workshop will go towards booking the site, promoting the event, paying trainers/assistants, and processing the tickets, so I'd appreciate it if you could book and pay as early as possible. For similar reasons, your booking is non-refundable if you're unable to come (but it may possible to transfer it to someone else, upon request).

This is going to be one fantastic event. I hope to see you there.
