Due to popular demand, my Dartmoor photography workshops are now available for booking. These workshops offer the beginner and intermediate photographer an opportunity to learn essential skills to improve their landscape photography technique. Ultimately, sharing what you already know about photography before the workshop commences will help me to tailor the session to suit your needs.
Half-day workshop sessions will cover up to 4 hours, encapsulating either a sunrise or sunset shoot. My tuition is always relaxed yet highly informative and will take place in the landscape environment, allowing you to absorb some of Dartmoor’s stunning vistas during the ‘magic hour’ of light. I can recommend a number of workshop locations for your consideration or alternatively, if you have a particular location in mind I will work with you to maximise the photographic potential. During workshop sessions I will aim to run through some of the most important aspects of landscape photography to develop your knowledge, skills and understanding:
• Setting up a tripod
• ISO settings
• Using the ‘Manual’ mode
• The Light Meter
• The Histogram
• Using different types of lenses
• Manual focusing
• Aperture settings (depth of field)
• Using filters: ND graduated filters / polarising filters
Taking your shots
• Shooting in optimum light conditions and how light effects the landscape
• Framing shots
• Composition and angles
• Leading lines
• Balancing elements (within the image)
• Exposure / exposure compensation
Processing your images
• I will also offer straightforward advice on processing your images.
Of course, the weather and light are important factors when planning any landscape shoot and we may need to reschedule workshops to a suitable date and time if conditions are poor. However, don’t be afraid of changeable weather conditions as it may provide some of the best light for photography on Dartmoor… so have your waterproofs at the ready!
