Come along and try your hand at photographing at night. This is a really fun and rewarding process of producing beautiful photos when you can see virtually nothing.

We will look at several ideas and methods of working but mainly concentarting on long exposure work.

You'll need a camera (obviously!), an SLR or CSC ideally. You'll need a lens, usually something wide angle works best and the kit lens (18-55) is just fine. You will need a tripod and ideally a cable release or remote control. Of course you'll need a memory card with plenty of space and a freshly charged battery or two.

In addition to photography equioment I strongly recommend dressing for the weather, in particular a big warm coat, scarf and hat. Gloves are good and if you if some that are fairly thin with the little rubber grib bits, they are great for photogrpahy.

If you have any particular ideas that you want to try I'm all ears. I love it when people want to have their own input and I will help assist you to get the shots you want. So if it's 'wire wool photography', 'light orbs' or other, I will do my best to help.

Not only will it be really useful, but a good powerful torch might be good for some light painting photos. But just simply being able to see what you're doing sounds so silly, but essential to what we are doing here.
