Low-Light Long Exposure & HDR Photography – Chester Academy Evening

What Will Happen

Low-Light Long Exposure & HDR Photography. That’s what will be happening at the Welshot Chester Academy Evening in September. Our photographic adventure will start at the Old Harkers Arms and will take you and your camera on a gentle stroll alongside the Shropshire Union Canal that meanders through Cheshire. From learning how to use your camera in low-light conditions, taking long exposure photographs to shooting for HDR, this photographic workshop is guaranteed to provide you with the inspiration needed to capture some stunning and dramatic images. This photography event is perfect for the photographer who loves nightscapes and architecture.

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.

All photographs used to advertise this Welshot Photographic Academy Evening have been taken by Mark Carline as part of his allowed daily walk during the Covid 19 Lockdowns. You can see the full set of photographs at Mark Carline on Flickr
