Visit the Bowland Dark Sky Discovery site in Gisburn Forest and learn how to photograph the contrast of our dark skies and the beautiful stars above. Create star trails and other compositions that will leave you and your friends breathless, all with just a DSLR camera, lens and tripod.
After time spent in the workshop there will be opportunities (weather permitting) to try the techniques out under Bowland’s dark skies. Suitable for adults and accompanied children 16 years and over.
Booking essential. This event is taking place as part of the Forest of Bowland Dark Skies Festival 2019.
