Woodland Group Workshop
This half day workshop centres around Upper Hollesley Common which is a diverse area of Suffolk woodland and heathland. It is a colourful landscape of pine plantations, mixed woodland and heathland and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
During this workshop we will explore a variety of habitats from the uniformity of the pine plantations to the more natural mixed woodland, silver birch glades and areas of colourful beech trees. We will practice the art of composition and ‘seeing’ an image using a variety of techniques.
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 Woodland 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 woodlands. 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.
This is a 3 hour workshop and includes printed course notes. It is suitable for all levels and abilities and all camera types. Participants are invited to submit their collection of images for comments and feedback after the workshop.
This workshop is suitable for all levels and abilities and all camera types.
