Shingle Street Group Workshop.

Saturday 4th June 2022 8am – 11am

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.

Learn how to take well composed beautiful images. For me photography is not all about the latest gear, it is much more about connecting with the landscape and ‘seeing’ what is around you. All my workshops are tailored to your specific requirements and we will discuss these beforehand, but typically a session will include some or all of the following:

The technical side of making a photograph. This will include camera settings, ISO, aperture and depth of field, the relationship between ISO, aperture and shutter speed, white balance and the use of filters and techniques like long exposure and how to get the best from sunrises and sunsets..

‘Seeing the landscape’. This is one of the most critical elements of photography. You can be technically brilliant with the camera but if you cannot see an image or put together a successful composition you will never reach your full potential as a photographer. In this section we will practice observation and composition and work with some of the rules for composition but we will also be aware that rules are guidelines only and should never be followed to the point where they stifle your creativity.

Part of the Landscape Workbook. This year all participants on my half day workshops will receive a copy of my Part of the Landscape Workbook which can be used afterwards to continue exploring the Suffolk landscape. The workbook features a series of exercises designed to promote a more thoughtful approach to landscape photography and looks at how we can use this to engage more fully with the natural world.

Requirements

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)

What’s Included

3 hours of tuition at Shingle Street

A copy of the Part of the Landscape Workbook

Digital course notes which will be emailed before the session.

Participants are invited to submit their favourite images for comments and feedback after the workshop.
