Yorkshire Dales: Ribblehead Viaduct / Scaleber Force and More 19th March 2016
This one day photographic workshop will explore the rich photographic diversity in the centre of the beautiful Yorkshire dales. We will starting be exploring the dramatic Scaleber Force with its wonderful natural forms and amazing stepped cascading water. Then moving on to the world renowned Ribblehead Viaduct and then on to the limestone pavements surrounded by the three peeks. There is plenty of opportunity to make powerfully graphic compositions and we can even have a go at experimenting with monotone. There will be plenty of opportunity to experiment with long exposure moving water and I assure you once you visit you will be hooked!
What to expect on this photograph workshop?
Limestone pavements, spectacular waterfalls, historic viaducts, lots of classic Yorkshire Dales vistas and plenty of natural beauty!
The one day workshop structure -
A typical workshop day often includes tuition on the following subjects; camera set-up, live view and accurate focusing, of field preview, effective tripod setup, shooting manual, bespoke and one to one demonstrations of exposure, metering, and bracketing, focusing, depth of field (known as Hyperfocal distance). The creative uses of both shutter speed and apertures, use of filters, both exposure balancing (Neutral Density Graduated) and creative effects (Polarisers, Neutral Density). Whatever you’re understanding I assure you that I will help you advance both technically and creatively and ensure a bespoke learning experience depends on individual needs or requests.
Composition will form an important part of the workshop as its key to powerful images and there will be demonstrations, critiques and healthy discussions. Some topics we can cover; what makes a good image, the rules of composition, when to follow them and when to break them, how to win camera club competitions, use of depth, scale, texture, perspective, colour and psychology. Other popular topics of discussion include; location planning, lighting conditions, support material and communities, commercial work, Photoshop and, image philosophy.
