Description

The Sparkler Photography Experience

It is that time of the year again where photographers flock outdoors to capture fireworks, sparklers and long exposures as the Autumn nights draw in. It is a wonderfully creative time, but do you always acheive the images that you are looking for?

  • Do you have difficulty photographing in the dark?
  • Would you like to capture your own sparkler photographs this bonfire night?
  • Do you want to take control of your camera to acheive these creative photgraphic styles?

Then this course is for you.

This is an exclusive course where we have limited spaces on the 1st November. The session starts at 7pm and finishes at 9pm.

What you will learn:

This workshop will give you the skills to photograph long exposures of fireworks and light trails. We will start with the theory element and then go outside to the barn grounds to put into practic what we have learned. A knowledge of photography technical settings would be an advantage, but is not required. We will then close with a review of the images and a question and answer session.

The boring, but important bit!

- Class numbers will operate at a minimum of 5 delegates.

- We will be in and outdoors, please wear sensible clothes and footwear. We will be outside in cold temperatues, we will be under cover if it is raining, and it is rough terrain in certain areas. Please note we have about 25 steps up to the training room and sadly do not have disabled access.

- Please take care of your possessions, we do not accept any liability for damages.

- As we are working with matches and fireworks there are significant risks that could be apparent if not used properly. There will be buckets of water outside and suggest that delegates look at safe use of sparklers on the Firework safety website - http://www.fireworksafety.co.uk/sparkler.htm
