Adventure Photography Workshop

Introduction Level - 2 days | Prices from £325.00

This course is for anyone interested in improving their outdoor photography, whether it’s just getting more interesting shots of your walking trip or improving the images you take for a client. We live in a social media age and visual imagery is now more important than ever and the skills to take engaging and interesting imagery can be learnt by anyone.

Anyone that has a camera will find this course invaluable to really help them get the most out of their equipment and see photographic opportunities all round them when in the outdoors.

We’ll be looking at working with athletes to try and capture ‘the moment’, communicating a story to your audience, looking at composition and landscape images and working with the weather to make everything work for you rather than against you.

Is It For Me?

You will need a Digital SLR camera or quality compact camera that has the capability to manually adjust settings like aperture and shutter speed. Any lenses you have available is helpful, but not necessary as the kit lens you have with your camera is fine. A tripod is also helpful.

 We will be outdoors for the 2 days so full outdoor clothing and footwear is required to keep you warm and dry.

Please bring a laptop and also download the free version of Lightroom from Adobe and a card reader to transfer your images from the day’s photography onto your laptop. 

Please also bring a camera bag/case to keep your camera dry and protected while outdoors.

 

Course Content

 

We will meet 2000hrs Friday evening at Glenmore Lodge and go through a photographic presentation and I will talk about some of the things that we will be working on over the 2 days.

 

Saturday

We will be outdoors all day, but the location will depend on the weather. We will be looking at compositional ideas, creating a story, the art of subtraction and negative space. We will return to the Glenmore Lodge at 1700hrs, download and review the day’s images and discuss Lightroom techniques for editing your images after dinner.

Sunday

We will look at working to a brief and building a visual story for your client. We will further discuss composition, working with fractlas, how less is more, the power of 3 and building depth into your images . We will then return to the Glenmore Lodge, download the days images and further discuss Lightroom techniques.
