Teesdale Evening Photography Workshop - Meteors & Waterfalls
Sat 22 April 2017, 20:00 – 23:00 BST
Join us at Bowlees for a new monthly event. As it's the lighter nights, we'll start off around dusk at Low Force waterfall. Golden Hour and Blue Hour are some of the best times of day to capture moving water. For a start, there's hardly any glare from the sun, and you can get long exposures without filters.
Also, Bowlees Visitor Centre is a designated Dark Sky Discovery Site. As this workshop takes place at the end of April, we'll experience a wide range of light levels from sunset to darkness. If the skies are clear, it should be possible by the end to photograph planets and major spring constellations.
The workshop is at the peak time for the Lyrid meteor shower which, as long as the sky is reasonably clear, should put on a good show.
The entire site and building will be available to you, for all kinds of night photography (and light painting).
You're also welcome to bring a laptop, and whatever editing software you have, for support in editing night and astro images.
In the event of a cloudy night being forecast, I'll do my best to offer additional equipment / activities, but of course, you don't need a clear sky for the majority of night photography.
In the case of extreme weather being forecast, such as heavy rain, snow, fog, or winds, you will be able to transfer to the following month's event, free of charge. I'll make an email announcement about this, either way, a couple of nights before the workshop.
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 a standout event in my night photography programme. Hope you can make it!
