Felixstowe Sunrise Workshop
Sunrise and morning workshop 7am – 1pm Saturday 4th December 2021
Join me for a 6 hour photography workshop exploring the different landscapes of this seaside town.
The workshop begins at dawn on Landguard Point where hopefully we will be able to catch a sunrise over the old pier. There will be opportunities to experiment with long exposure and filters are available to borrow if required.
From Landguard Point we will move onto Cobbold Point for some long exposure photography using the iconic breakwaters. The workshop will finish at Felixstowe Ferry where we will have an opportunity to experiment with compositions around the boatyard and the mouth of the River Deben.
The workshop is timed to capture sunrise at Landguard Point and we will be able to work with the early morning light which I often find is the best of the day. I will give advice on filters and capturing the early morning colour as well as working with some long exposure photography. I have a selection of Lee Filters which are available to borrow for the duration of the workshop so please request this option when booking.
During the workshop we will also explore the art of composition and “seeing and image”. The three locations visited in this workshop are all about 10 mins apart by car but offer completely different photographic opportunities.
What you need
This workshops assumes some basic knowledge of your camera controls. You will need to bring your camera and a lens suitable for wider landscapes, a tripod and a cable release. If you have graduated filters and ND filters these will be useful for sunrise work and long exposures but if not I have filters sets which can be borrowed for the duration of the workshop. If you have any questions about kit prior to booking please don’t hesitate to contact me
My Felixstowe Sunrise Workshop is a small group workshop run with a maximum of 4 participants so ensuring plenty of individual tuition. I also provide a set of digital notes to accompany the workshop which I send out before the day.
Participants are invited to submit their favourite images for comments and feedback after the workshop.
Covid – 19
This workshop is run in accordance with current Government guidelines and social distancing will be observed at all times
