How To Photograph The Night Sky – Penmon Anglesey – Mini Module with Masterclass

What Will Happen

From low-light, long exposure to how to photograph the night sky this Welshot photographic event at Penmon, on the Isle of Anglesey will keep you and your camera busy taking stunning images from before sunset to long after the sun has gone down. You will have two masterclasses – learning how to shoot the golden hour, before catching that sunset and the blue hour that photographers love so much. The second Welshot masterclass will help you to get prepared for an evening of Astro photography to ensure your camera is all set up to catch the night sky. You are going to learn how to make long exposures to capture the sea as it laps the shore and lighthouse as well as clouds and dramatic landscape in low light conditions. For those who would like to learn the art of light painting, we will be lighting up the lighthouse as well as creating some dramatic art. Plenty to photograph and keep you busy on this extensive Welshot Mini Module.
