Woodbridge and Woods Photo and Process Workshop.
Thursday 21st October 7am – 1pm. Woodbridge and Woods plus Lightroom tuition. Only 2 places available.
Join me for a photography day of two halves. Limited to 2 participants this small group session features a sunrise shoot on Woodbridge waterfront, some time exploring the autumnal colours in the woods at Upper Hollesley Common followed by a couple of hours in my Hollesley studio processing your images using Lightroom and Photoshop.
The session will start on Woodbridge waterfront where we will hopefully be able to get some early morning colours as the sun rises over the Tide Mill. We will spend some time here before heading a couple of miles down the road to Upper Hollesley Common where we will explore some of the mixed oak, beech and silver birch woodland. The workshop will finish with a couple of hours in my studio at Hollesley processing our images from the morning shoot.
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.
After about 4 hours in the field we will come back to Hollesley and spend the remaining time processing our shots and learning how to get the most out of Lightroom. You will go away with processed and print ready files.
The workshop includes:
6 hours of tuition
The option to borrow a tripod and filters if required
The use of a computer and Lightroom for the processing session in my studio at Hollesley.
