Cornwall Night Photography Workshop Dates 2020
A one night photography workshop, in which I will be sharing my creative process on how I produce my night sky images. You have the choice between two of Cornwall's most beautiful locations, both of which are perfect for night photography. No matter what your skill level, if you have a capable DSLR or Mirrorless camera you can learn how to capture the night sky!
Come and join me in the milky way season of 2020 and learn how to shoot the stars! Sessions cost £150 per person and are 3.5 hours.
Groups will be kept small and limited to three students. This way there will be lots of one on one interaction and we can all work together to get the best possible images.
Each night will act as a standalone lesson, you are free to pick one or more nights and we can build on your existing knowledge.
I have taken the moon phase and milky way position into consideration, so any of the dates below are suitable for capturing the night sky.
Most night shots require post processing to look their best. I supply links to useful post production tutorials, along with notes of the session via email the following day. This workshop focuses on the shooting method required to produce night images.
Clear skies are preferred but cannot be guaranteed, the session will go ahead as planned unless there is very heavy rain. All of the required techniques and my creative process can be learnt, even if it's cloudy. The aim of the session is to prepare you for the next perfect night, from planning to shooting.
Groups will be kept small, and limited to 3 students.
£150 per person - 3.5 hour session
A relatively recent DSLR or Mirrorless camera is required (2012 or newer), with an interchangeable lens 28mm or wider, with a minimum aperture of f4 or below.
Each night will be different depending on the weather conditions and the groups skill level, but here are some aspects that I intend to cover:
Planning for the Milky Way
Optimal camera settings for capturing the night sky
Manually focusing in the dark
Composition tips & help
Panorama shooting technique
Timelapse shooting technique
Post processing tips, with suggested relevant tutorials.
Equipment you will need:
Wide angle lens capable of 28mm f4 or lower (if unsure message me)
Warm clothes (it's summer but it can still get cold at night)
Torch (preferably a head torch)
Spare camera battery (some batteries will last a full session, but it always pays to have a back up)
Helpful, but not essential equipment:
An intervalometer/shutter release
Flask of tea
Insurance, transport and accommodation are not provided.
