Flowing River through gorge

A magical serene and secluded gorge through the river Conwy at Betws-y- Coed provides a great opportunity to practise long exposure photography and make images that capture the wonderful natural colours and light that frequently falls into this glen.

On this workshop Alan will guide you through:

  • focusing and depth of field with correct exposure time

  • tonal range and shadow and highlight recognition

  • composition and designing the shot

  • long exposure, set-up and calculating the right amount of time


Fitness Level Required - Easy

This trip is rated as easy, meaning that most people with average comfortably be able to deal with the short walks and occasional steps or gradients involved and be comfortable on their feet for the duration of the workshop event.

Experience Level - Beginner

  • The class and workshop are suitable for any level, including beginners. Ideally you will understand exposure, aperture and be shooting in Aperture Priority or Manual Exposure mode.

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

  • You will be provided an electronic guide beforehand to set your camera up in preparation and ensure you have everything required

Equipment for this workshop

What to bring:

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

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

  • Wide angle (10-24mm) is good for framing large vista’s and architecture. A zoom with any range between 24-200mm is good for isolating details at distance if required.

  • Tripod (essential) I can hire you one for the session at the cost of £10 but let me know in advance if you want one.

  • Sensible footwear – it can sometimes be muddy and sticky underfoot so walking boots or trainers with good grip are recommended.

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

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

  • Raincoats or equivalent – we might catch a shower!

If you have any specific questions regarding equipment please contact me directly or take a look at my recommended products page.
