Pictures in the Dark

Friday 16th February 2018 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre

Bardon Mill, Hexham, NE47 7AN, North East


Description

Suitable for amateur photographers this event is an ideal opportunity to further your skills taking images of nocturnal wildlife and the dark skies above Northumberland. The event is limited to a small group and attendees can expect one-to-one tuition, prior booking therefore required. This event takes place around new moon when the skies are at their very darkest -- it's the best time to see the fantastic star-filled skies above Northumberland! Why not arrive a little early and have a two course evening meal at The Sill Cafe beforehand!?

- Event offers guidance and tuition on how to take night-time photographs using a camera and tripod or using a telescope in place of a camera lens.
