LANDSCAPE WORKSHOP FOR BEGINNERS
The beginner landscape workshop will run for seven days; each lesson lasts four hours. Lessons 1-3 will be held at Happisburgh Lighthouse, from which we’ll focus on equipment setup, exposure triangle, aperture, shutter speeds, ethics, attention to detail and placement of objects etc.
Workshop 4-5 will be held at Cromer Pier, where we’ll explore composition, leading lines, storytelling, symmetry, foregrounds, mid-grounds and backgrounds.
Workshops 6-7 will be held at Thornham Marsh and Felixstowe at Landguard Point, from which we’ll cover golden-hour photography, filters, mood, depth of field, focusing, architecture, storytelling, etc.
As a bonus, I’m also throwing in an extra day (for free) from which we’ll cover the post-processing of RAW files into beautiful print-worthy images at Harford Community Centre. Workshop 8 will run from 09:00 until 17:00 hrs.
This is an excellent opportunity for beginners to learn more about landscape photography at some of the finest picturesque locations in East England.
