Isle of wight night sky and nature workshop
Come join Tim Wells on a 2 night Astrophotography workshop around the beautiful scenery of the isle of wight.
With the well known dark Skies of the island Tim will take you to his favourite locations and help you catch the stars. (weather permitted)
on a cloudy or moonlit night Tim will help you capture some lovely sights and still go through with you how he captures the stars at night.
This workshop offers you an opportunity to explore the beautiful areas of the Isle of wight whilst learning how to capture the light between dusk and dawn. We start by, taking advantage of the Blue Hour to capture local seaside towns like Ventnor, as well as a lighthouse or two that can be found. We then track down some clear skies with the aim to photograph stunning starlit landscapes along with the opportunity to capture the Milky Way.
