Light & Shadow in Photography

Saturday the 18th of June
The Underground World of Spaghetti Junction - 10am - 2 hours
The Underground World of Spaghetti junction. Harsh light and the contrast between light and shadow can provide some interesting photo opportunities, as well as some challenges! We’ll be looking at how you can use your camera’s settings to nail the exposure. Spaghetti Junction comprises two railway lines, two rivers, three canals, and 13.5 miles of motorway. Underneath the monolithic flyovers is a unique landscape which the thousands of drivers who use it every day never see, from the calm of Salford Reservoir to the hidden forests under the concrete brutalism and noise of the flyover itself

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.
