Suffolk Heaths Workshop.
This half day workshop centres around Westleton Heath which is a diverse area of Suffolk Heathland. It is a colourful landscape full of flowering heather, delicate grasses, ferns and silver birch trees. It is a National Nature Reserve and a remnant of the Sandlings Heathland that once covered much of the Suffolk Coast.
During this workshop we will explore a variety of habitats from heathland to woodland and practice the art of composition and ‘seeing’ an image.
We will look at the wider landscape as well as at more intimate details and will explore different methods of finding and observing images in wild landscapes.
We will practice identifying subjects, finding viewpoints, working with supporting elements and incorporating lines, shapes, patterns and textures. We will also look at light and how that affects an image and the use of colour.
The Suffolk Heaths Workshop will include a series of exercises to help you master the different aspects of composition with the ultimate aim of producing a panel or montage of images conveying the spirit of the heathlands. There will be advice on how to put this together and how to choose and arrange a series of images to produce a cohesive display.
Participants are invited to submit their images for comments and feedback after the workshop.
This workshop is suitable for all levels and abilities and all camera types.
This workshop is being run in conjunction with my new book “Photographing the Suffolk Coast” which can be purchased here >
