Night Time Photography Workshop

Friday 15th February 2019 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Helmsley Walled Garden

Cleveland Way, Helmsley, YO62 5AH


When the sun sets and the stars come out, our skies are transformed. Once you understand the basics of how your camera operates and the best times to observe, then spectacular images unfold.

So come and spend an evening with Steve Bell at Helmsley Walled Garden and discover how to take great night sky images. There will be a talk explaining all the technical aspects. Then, after a warm drink there will be plenty of time to take your own pictures with guidance from Steve.

Booking required. Not suitable for children.

This event is taking place as part of the National Parks Dark Skies Festival 2019.

- 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.
