Snowdonia and Anglesey Landscape Photography Workshop – North Wales Landscape Photography
Three days in Snowdonia, North Wales and Anglesey photographing the amazing scenery including mountains, waterfalls and lighthouses. Our day usually starts just before sunrise to photograph our first location and can end a long time after dark as we photograph sunset and then weather permitting we may create star photographs with a session of astro photography or light painting.
During the three days I’ll be teaching various techniques and methods of work including.
- Landscape composition – using lead in lines, rule of thirds, separation and image structure.
- Focusing, hyperlocal distance and maximising depth of field.
- Long exposures with the use of filters.
- High Dynamic Range (HDR) images with exposure bracketing,
- Focus stacking and editing
- Creating panoramic images.
- During one of the evenings I’ll demonstrate my editing techniques using Lightroom and Photoshop to edit some of the images from that day.
All tuition and transport between locations is included along with use of filters for creating the images. Neutral density and graduated neutral density.
Each morning we’ll be leaving from Anglesey, we’ll be staying at the very competitively priced Bull hotel in Llangefni on Anglesey, but you are welcome to stay at any other location and meet each morning at the Bull Hotel. Accommodation and meals are not included. Our final day will finish around forty miles away near Chester so it is recommended to check out on the 10th.
Fitness Level Required: 2-3/5
We’ll be working in the mountains, near waterfalls and on beaches. This will involve working on uneven ground and some inclines. A general level of fitness is required for this workshop. Due to the environment of this workshop, a number of locations are not be accessible to wheelchair users.
Photographic equipement required:
- A sturdy tripod is essential for landscape photography
- Lenses from wide angle to around 70mm. Lenses with a filter thread are ideal as these allow the use of filters, some extreme wide angel lenses such as 12-24mm don’t allow the use of conventional filters.
- A cable release for long exposures is an ideal and inexpensive way of activating your camera shutter
- Camera rain cover – either a bespoke cover or a simple plastic bag to protect your camera from the element
Other recommenced equipment.
- Warm and waterproof clothing including hat and gloves
- Sturdy walking boots, ideally waterproof
- Windproof umbrella – not essential but very helpful if the weather takes a turn for the worse.
