The workshop starts with a mid-morning session along the beautiful shores of at Derwent Water where we will spend the morning shooting the shoreline and accross the lake towards Catbells, which is one of the best places in the Lakes to shoot landscapes. From here we will head south to Ullswater and the area around Glenridding to shoot jetties with stops along the way to look at Wordsworth Point, potentialy Aira Force or one of the lesser know boat houses. The day will culminate with a dusk shoot, where you can put into practice all that you have learned whilst capturing the mysterious Castlerigg stone circle at last light.
Most landscape photographers love their filters and their use can often mean the difference between a good photo and a great one. My personal choice of filter manufacturer is Lee filters and if you don’t have your own on the day, I will demonstrate using them with your equipment. The main filters used today are; neutral density graduated filters to balance exposure, polarisers to reduce glare and saturate colours, Little and Big stoppers to slow shutter speeds and create magical blur. I have a full range of these.
Meeting point to be agreed.
