Derwentwater Milky Way Photography Workshop

Derwentwater Milky Way Photography Workshop

Friday 6th September 2024 from 21:00pm to 23:00pm

Lakeside Car Park - Keswick
Lake Road, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 5DG

Join us for a Milky Way shoot on the northern shores (Keswick end) of Derwentwater.

This will be the third Milky Way workshop at Derwentwater, but I’ve done even more shoots there myself. It’s one of my favourite locations, with an abundance of vantage points and photogenic backdrops.

Keswick is a very reasonable drive from the North East and North West. If you want to make a day of it, we’ve got two other workshops in the Lakes on September 6th.

I’ll show you how to get the best results from whatever equipment you have. You don’t necessarily need a special camera or lens, but it helps to be able to set all the controls and focus manually. You’ll definitely need a tripod though.

We welcome all ability levels, from absolute beginners, to people who’ve dabbled with astrophotography, to more experienced photographers.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
