We got to visit the Wisley Glow event this year (just at the end of lockdown), and having been to a few others in the last few years, this was no disappointment. None of the tacky Santa and Reindeer stuff that was a huge part of Kew one year, but plenty of changing light patterns, repetitive music etc. Quite crowded, with many small children, a one-way system and ropes everywhere, so a healthy dose of patience required........I am not selling it to you am I?!? It was a welcome distraction from the never ending lockdown though.
It's been a very quiet year for Catchlight 35, not surprisingly with the pandemic, and quite hard in all sorts of other ways too that no-one had expected for many people.
So dust off that camera, out with the tripod, turn down the ISO and use remote trigger for varying long exposures. After that, shoot to stack and lose the people! I think the minimum exposure time for any of my shots was 6 seconds, but mostly they were 13 to 30 seconds or more. You need a relatively windless day so I was lucky. Enjoy.
