Beacon Fell, Preston, PR3 2NL
Learn how to create beautiful star trails and other compositions that will leave you and your friends breathless, all with just a DSLR camera, lens and tripod!
You’ll be introduced to the techniques of processing astro-photographs to enhance faint detail in your images. Using tracking mounts with camera lenses and small telescopes you will be taking pictures you never thought possible!
After some time spent in the workshop there will be opportunities (weather permitting) to try the astro-photography techniques out under Bowland’s fabulous dark skies. This event is suitable for adults and accompanied children 16 years and over.
Early booking is advised as places are limited!
