(Alternative!) Landscape Photography Workshop
One day workshop
When the covid lockdowns went into force, I changed my photography. I stayed local and explored my local landscape. I’ve been doing that every day now ever since. This isn’t a scenic landscape. There’s no hills or mountains, no lakes or honeypot views. It’s everyday views in local fields and countryside. However, I now have hundreds of pictures of this landscape, I know it like the back of my hand and I want to share it with you. This for me, is the perfect place to learn landscape photography. Capture images here and you can capture images anywhere. This workshop is about learning about your camera and gaining a vision, a creative eye that will hopefully inspire your photography. Come to this little corner of Yorkshire, 20 miles from the historic city of York and see how it will change your photography.
The day starts at 8.30am and finishes at around 3pm, with a break for coffee.
Price includes full days tuition.
Weekday dates only.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop only runs between May and July each year.
During the workshop we will cover all techniques required for traditional landscape photography. We’ll look at the use of wide angle lenses and using foreground to create interesting compositions. We’ll also look at how graduated filters work, how to meter for landscapes and depth-of-field. More importantly, we’ll make landscape images from views that most others would just walk past!
I will have a full range of LEE filters for you to try, so that you can see which are the best filters for landscape and try before you buy.
Ideal for the complete beginner, this photography workshop is a great opportunity to learn the basics of landscape photography in a relaxed environment. For the more advanced photographer, a chance to fine-tune your skills and look beyond the obvious. This is about ‘seeing’ as much as it is about camera technique.
This is a walking route only, so a good level of fitness and mobility is required, walking on uneven ground. Maybe a few puddles to negotiate too.
You will need to bring:
- Film/Digital SLR or bridge digital camera, whichever you use, we cater for all types.
- A range of lenses from wide angle to telephoto.
- Filters will be useful if you have any.
- A tripod is optional (all my images taken here been captured handheld).
- Your cameras instruction manual may be useful.
- Waterproof clothing and good walking boots.
- Walking trousers are ideal too, as fields of crops can be wet and walking trousers dry quicker!
- You may want to bring water and a snack to have on the walk.
Embrace the eyesores and love a pylon as much as a mountain.
This workshop isn’t for everyone.
It’s not for those that only shoot pretty views.
However, this location has a beauty all of its own.
