Description/Itinerary

Description

Landscape Photography

We will be based in the north lakes and visit some of the top spots in the Lake District for photographs.  The Lake District has been a favourite location for photographers for decades.  It offers a rich variety of landscapes and the seasonal weather means it can be different every time you visit.

The weather creates unique windows to capture, reflections, mist, stormy skies and subtle and strong colours - often all in the space of 1-2 days and sometimes just hours.

We will visit approximately 2-3 locations a day in a weekend subject to the wishes of the group, time, weather and other factors:

Difficulty/Equipment

Fitness level Required - Easy-Moderate

This trip is rated as easy to moderate, meaning that most people with average fitness should comfortably be able to deal with the short walks (15-30mins) and occasional steps or gradients involved.

Experience Level - Beginner to Intermediate

  • The workshop is suitable for any level, including beginners.

  • All participants receive 1-2-1 tuition and support on practical workshops so that tutoring can be tailored to the individuals needs and experience.

  • No prior knowledge of photography is required as each student will be taught individually, according to their level.

Equipment for this workshop

What to bring:

  • Your camera, fully charged battery and spare batteries if you have them.

  • Battery Charger if attending more than one day

  • Additional memory card(s) in case required

  • Remote Release Cable to take shots without touching the camera.

  • Any lenses are suitable - zooms, wide angle and macro

  • Tripod (essential)

  • A polarising filter is useful for removing glare and reflections but not essential

  • Graduated and Neutral Density Filters - useful for increasing exposure, dynamic range and doing longer exposures

  • Sensible footwear – it can sometimes be muddy, wet and sticky underfoot so walking boots or trainers with good grip are recommended and wellington boots for coastal workshops.

  • A large sandwich bag and an elastic band to wrap around your camera and lens if we have light rain

  • A kneeling mat or dustbin liner to put on the ground if you want to kneel or crouch down for ground level shots

  • Water, snacks or whatever you need for the event duration

  • Raincoats or equivalent – we might catch a shower!

  • Notebook/Paper and pen for note taking in throughout the workshop

  • Laptops are not required though you may wish to bring one if you feel you want to download and review your shots after each day
