Chester Winter Watch – Low-Light Street Photography – Mini Module with Masterclass

What Will Happen

It’s official – the Chester Winter Watch parade is BACK! And Welshot is on a mission to help all photographers to make full use of this colourful and creative spectacle. From a low-light and long exposure masterclass to street photography – this Mini-Module from the Welshot Photographic Academy will have everything the photographer needs to beat those Winter blues and get into the festive Christmas spirit. Not to mention the fact that your camera will be running red hot as you will be busy making images and practicing new techniques.

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.

The Welshot Team will be at hand throughout this session to assist and help you get the best from your camera, so you can leave at the end of this session with memory cards full of beautiful photographs and great memories.

Please Note: No food or drink is included in the cost of this event. This is a fully outdoor event – please make sure you come dressed appropriately. If Welshot decides to postpone this event due to bad weather conditions you will be given a number of options regarding your booking.

Welshot will be keeping within Welsh Government regulations and recommendations regarding the Coronavirus and Covid 19 Regulations, and we expect our delegates to do the same
