Harwich and Brightlingsea Sunrise and Long Exposure Workshop
Tuesday 12th December 7.20am – 11.15am
Join me for a 4 hour photography workshop exploring 2 different coastal locations Dovercourt Bay in Harwich and Brightlingsea in Essex. Plus a 1 hour zoom session on Tuesday 19th December at 7pm to review and discuss images.
The workshop begins at dawn in Dovercourt Bay where we will spend some time photographing the low lighthouse. The workshop is timed for sunrise an hour or so after low tide so there will be a good range of elements to use in our foregrounds including wooden groynes, sand patterns and tidal pools.
From Harwich we will travel 30 minutes to Brightlingsea where there will be opportunities to experiment with long exposure using the rivers edge around Batemans Tower.
The workshop will focus on the use of filters for 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.
Included with the workshop is a 1 hour zoom session to share and discuss your images from the workshop. You do not need to attend this session but you will get from from the workshop if you do.
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 Sunrise and Long Exposure Workshop is a small group workshop run with a maximum of 5 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.
