November Fireworks Workshop

Join me on a bonfire night fireworks photography workshop where you will learn how to take spectacular photos of fireworks launching from Caerphilly Castle. 

We meet for coffee and an introduction at 4:00pm. I will then provide a very detailed description of how I successfully capture fireworks photos, and process these into stunning images.

We arrive at our shooting location at 7:00pm, after the sun sets. This give us an hour to practice the techniques in the dark.

Finally – the main event – the fireworks launch at 8:00pm. By this time we will be confident and prepared to capture some incredible fireworks photos.

Required Equipment

In order to get the most from this workshop you will need the following items

  • DSLR camera or any compact camera with manual mode
  • A fully charged camera battery

What happens if the weather is poor?

The fireworks display goes ahead even when it’s raining, so the workshop goes ahead too! It does mean though that we need to take extra care to protect our camera equipment from the rain. Rain covers will be supplied, but bring your own umbrella just in case.

Is my camera suitable?

This workshop is suitable for any DSLR camera or a compact cmaera with manual setting. If in doubt, please contact me with your camera model and I will respond ASAP.

I don't have a tripod, can I still join the workshop?

A tripod is required for this session. One may be hired for the session at a cost of £12.
