Saturday 13th November 2010 – Night photography and painting with light.

Time 2.30pm onwards.
Location.  Christ Church Woodford, Chester Road, Woodford, Stockport. SK7 1PR (View Map).

Christ Church Woodford has a very atmospheric churchyard, which we have permission to use for this event.

The event will start with a short tutorial on night time photography, including painting with light techniques, day for night and strobist techniques.  As the light fades we will have the opportunity to practice the techniques involved in balancing the fading daylight with artificial light.

Throughout the evening you will be able to work on your own images at your pace using the atmospheric church yard and the model(s).  Alternatively work with other photographers sharing ideas and techniques.  For those who need it I will be offering practical advice in small groups and one-to-one through out the event.

Once it is completely dark we will use painting with light techniques and multiple off-camera flash techniques.

Depending on the number of photographers booking to come we will have at least one model and probably two available to add ‘human interest’ into the atmospheric images we will be producing.  If we have a large number of photographers booking for this event additional models will be booked.

Printed notes detailing the techniques will be supplied and snacks / tea & coffee will be available throughout the event

This is the third time I have run a night photography event at Woodford and each time the event has proven to be very popular.

In addition to your camera for this event you will need to bring a tripod and a torch.  If you have an external flash gun, wireless flash triggers, and portable lighting stands you may wish to bring those as well.  I will have spare wireless triggers, flash guns, stands and even a spare tripod or two that can be borrowed on the night.  So if you don’t have your own don’t let that put you off booking for this event.

Cost £25.00 per person.
