What Will Happen

Astro photography – How to shoot the night sky. Join the team from Welshot for an Evening of night photography. From low-light, long exposures to how to photograph the night sky this Welshot photographic event at Cwm Idwal in Snowdonia will keep you and your camera busy taking stunning images from before sunset to long after the sun has gone down. You will learn how to make long exposures to capture the lake and sky as well as clouds and dramatic mountain landscape in low light conditions. For those who would like to learn the art of light painting, we will be lighting up the picturesque bridge that leads up to the lake.

You will have two photography masterclasses:

  • Learning how to shoot the golden hour before catching the sunset and blue hour that photographers love so much.
  • Getting prepared for an Evening of Astro Photography to ensure your camera is all set up correctly to catch the night sky.

Beginner to photography? We can help you.

Whether you are a beginner to photography, a photographer who would like to try a new genre, learn a new technique or skill, or, a more advanced photographer who wants to build their image portfolio, you will be made welcome, and we would love to help you get the best out of your camera.
