As part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Skies Festival join The Flat Capped Photographer or Yorkshire Photo Walks for a photography workshop like no other. With the Ribblehead Viaduct as our subject and the night’s sky as our backdrop we will learn how to take photographs in the landscape after dark. Learn how to master long exposures, astrophotography techniques and how to set your camera and compose photographs after the sun has gone down. Early bookings will also have the option to join us for a meal at the Station Inn before the session.
