On a clear evening Northumberland is one of England’s best places to see and photograph the night sky. Cawfields in Hadrian’s Wall Country – the location of this workshop – is a particularly atmospheric venue to see the winter sky.

This workshop is an introduction to the techniques required to create photos of the stars, including long exposures and shooting a time lapse sequence.

One thing that can’t be guaranteed is the weather! If rain or snow is likely cause a problem I’ll postpone the evening and try to arrange a new mutually-convenient date for everyone. I’ll cover low light techniques such as using flash and torches to illuminate the landscape (‘painting with light’) should the sky cloud over during the workshop.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to take part in this workshop or if you’d just like more information about this or any other workshop.

This workshop is suitable for most levels of experience and ability, other than complete beginners.
Although you won’t need particularly specialised equipment there are some types of photographic equipment that are desirable: a camera that features Bulb mode, a cable release that can be used to lock the camera’s shutter open and a sturdy tripod. A flashgun and a torch would also be very useful.
