Shortest Night 2023 - A Photographic Adventure in North Wales - Llyn Pardarn in Llanberis, Snowdonia, North Wales with Dolbardarn Castle in distance.

Welshot Does… The Shortest Night 2023 – A Photographic Adventure in North Wales.  On this, our annual all night adventure we will be visiting the beautiful landscape of Anglesey and Snowdonia in North Wales, which is always a firm Welshot favourite and always has our delegates booking on the next years ‘Shortest Night’ adventure before breakfast (included) have been eaten at the end of the event. The not so short, night of photography, which is always held as close to the 21st June as possible starts by the side of Llyn Padarn (Llanberis Lake) deep in the heart of Snowdonia before moving on for a marathon photographic session visiting numerous locations. Sixteen hours (Yes, we can see the irony!) of photographic fun, friendship and getting creative with your camera will have you shooting everything from star trails to long exposures, from architecture to land and seascapes. Hunting for the magic blue bioluminescence will also be on the agenda.

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.
