During the 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.
Fitness Level Required: Monday 2/5 – Tuesday 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 accessible to wheelchair users.Photographic equipment 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.
