Shingle Street Group Workshop.
Join me for a half day photography workshop in Shingle Street. During this workshop we will explore the art of composition and “seeing and image”
Shingle Street is a fantastic location to explore photographically especially in the spring when the floral display on the beach is at its best. Shingle Street is one of the best examples of vegetated shingle found along the Suffolk Coast and in May the beach blooms with the colourful displays of sea kale, sea pea, red valerian, vipers bugloss and sea campion. These plants make wonderful images in their own right as well as colourful additions to a wider landscape shot.
During the workshop we will have time to look at the wider landscape and practice identifying subjects, finding viewpoints, working with supporting elements and incorporating lines, shapes, patterns and textures. We will also look at close up shots of the various flowers on the beach and practice using apertures, depth of field and lighting to take gorgeous floral images.
This workshop will include a series of exercises which will help you master the different aspects of composition.
The Shingle Street Group Workshop is a 3 hour workshop and includes a a series of notes.
Participants are invited to submit their favourite images for comments and feedback after the workshop.
Covid 19 precautions
To comply with government guidelines this workshop will take place in a small group of 4. Social distancing will be observed at all times and all workshop notes will be sent digitally before the course. As observing images on the back of a camera will be difficult for me on the day I will be offering a critique of some of your favourites via email after the workshop.
This workshop is suitable for all camera types although you will be at an advantage if you have the ability to select your aperture and control your depth of field.
If you have a DSLR and a choice of lenses I would recommend a wide angle (in the region of 24 – 70mm) and a telephoto (eg. 70 – 200mm)
Photographic workshops make ideal gifts. If you would like to purchase a workshop as a gift please contact me and I will send you a free gift card with your order.
All my workshops explore areas that are covered in my book Photographing the Suffolk Coast
