Night Photography Workshop

Two weeks ago I announced my 2013 photography workshop schedule. I am happy to announce that I am adding to my 2013 photography workshop schedule. I have decided to include a Night Photography Workshop on August 10th, 2013.

Light Show - Trent Woods Photography - Night Photography Workshop

Night Photography Workshop Details

August 10th lines up to be a great date for a Night Photography Workshop.  Why is this date so great for a Night Photography Workshop you ask.  Well the new moon is on the 6th of August thus limiting the amount of light pollution for the moon.  The second reason that August 10th works out to be a great date for a night photography workshop is because the Perseid meteor shower peeks on the 12th of August.  Meaning that there should be a good chance to catch stunning pictures of the Meteor shower as well.  The Perseids are arguably the best meteor shower of the year.

The cost to attend this workshop is $100 per person when you signup before the 1st of March, if you signup after that date the cost goes up to $125 per person.  The group will be meeting anytime after 7pm (Instructors will be there by 7pm).  With sunset at 8:31pm, the group will be able to mingle and learn about each other before the nights activities really get rolling.

Topics Covered

During the course of the evening and throughout the night we will be exploring topics such as Light PaintingStar Trails, Photographing the Milky Way, Playing with lasers and Flash lights to create effects, and exposing for a subject in combination with the night sky.

Lasers and Flash Lights - Night Photography Workshop - Trent Woods Photography

  1. Camera with a Bulb setting (the ability to leave the shutter open for more then 30 seconds)
  2. Tripod
  3. Proper footwear
  4. Proper Clothing to be out all night

Optional Items to make your life easier and the workshop more enjoyable

  2. Flash light(s), off camera flash(s), laser(s)
  3. Things that are fun to play with at night

Workshop Location - Torrance Barrens Dark-Sky Reserve

In 1999 Torrance Barrens was designated by the government of Ontario, as the worlds first dark-sky reserve.  With Torrance Barrens being a signification distance from any urban light sources and the lack of cottages or homes in the area provides an unsurpassed location to avoid light pollution while viewing the night sky.  The topographical features of Torrance Barrens are neither low nor high.  Which means that  there are no hills in the distance, or towers to obscure the view of the sky.  Additionally, one of the most dominate features Torrance Barrens is the granite rock.  The granite does not transfer vibrations from the surrounding ground.  All of these features combined make it one of the best places in Ontario for astronomy and night photography.

Guest instructor(s)

Star Tails at Torrence Barrens Dark-Sky Reserve - By Paul Bruch

Paul Bruch will be joining this workshop as instructor.  Paul has many years of night photography experience, for the attendees to learn from.  Paul's Flickr photo stream showcases his diverse experiences and talents as a photographer.

With my fingers crossed I am trying to get a third instructor for the night.

The Night Photography Workshop is going to be a great time.  To signup for this workshop click here or to see any of the other workshops that I will be hosting visit the Trent Woods Photography Workshops Meetup.com Group.

2013 Photography Workshop Schedule

I am pleased to announce my 2013 Photography Workshop Schedule.  I will be hosting at least three Photography Workshops in 2013, and possibly more depending on demand.  Thus far I have set aside dates for three workshops in three very different locations, which I will describe below.  My goal is to provide a one day on location photography workshop.  Allowing the people attending the freedom to learn and explore the environment around them.  Explore and experiment with their photography skills/equipment.  While still have a source of knowledge available to answer questions and make suggestions.  By limiting the number of attendees in each workshop to just 10 participants I am able to spend time with each person, answering any questions they may have.  I am currently running an early bird registration special.  If you register before March 1st 2013 you can save $25 per workshop off the regular $125 per person price.  Additionally If you register for 2 workshop you are automatically registered to attend the 3rd workshop for free, this deal only applies if it is the same person taking all three workshops.

Spring in Algonquin Park Photography Workshop - May 11, 2013

Spirit of the Morning - Trent Woods Photography

Just two short weeks later, my next photography workshop will be taking place in Algonquin Park.  During our visit to Algonquin Park we will utilize the Highway 60 corridor to get to our hiking locations as well as photographing wildlife.  We will be visiting at least 2 of Algonquin Parks interpretive trails, hiking a minimum of 7kms.  The topics that will be highlighted during this workshop include Landscapes, Macro, and Wildlife Photography.

Summer Waterfall Tour in Owen Sound Photography Workshop - July 6, 2013

Hoggs Falls - Trent Woods Photography

My third and final workshop will be taking place in the Owen Sound area.  There are many different types of waterfalls, and Gray County showcases many of them.  This workshop is one of the easiest in terms of the distance that participants need to hike, but it is most defiantly the most difficult terrain to access our shooting locations.  During our explorations at each location we will be discussing techniques and equipment used to capture powerful images of waterfalls.

All of my 2013 Photography Workshops are geared towards all levels of photographers.  It doesn't matter if you are taking pictures with your cell phone or a high-end DSLR camera.  Everyone can learn something from my workshops.  Each workshop presents it's own challenges both photographically and physically.  All of the workshops that I will be hosting will require hiking to the final location, sometimes only 100m while other times 5+kms.  Much of the landscape that we will be crossing will be uneven and challenging.

I hope you can join me at one or more of these workshops.
