Cornwall Workshop Weekend

We'll be spending the weekend exploring the coastline between Lands End and Lizard Point.   While there is a basic itinery, the weekend will planned according to the weather conditions, and what the group want to do and when.  

Friday - Exploring the coastline between Godrevy Beach & St Ives
Saturday - While mostly avoiding the tourist trap of Lands End, we'll be exploring between Sennen and St Michael's Mount.
Sunday - Lizard Point to Bodmin Moor (on the way home).

I'll be on hand throughout the day to answer questions, and to help you get the best from your camera.

To maximise our chances of capturing a sunset, we'll be starting the weekend early afternoon on Friday.  

The hotel for this trip will be Premier Inn Treswithian Road, Camborne, Cornwall TR14 7NF.  You'll need to make your own booking directly with the hotel.

Event dates:
Friday 23rd Sept to Sunday 25th Sept 2016.

Cornwall

What will be covered

  • Using a "10-stopper" ND filter
  • Manual mode - using Shutter, Aperture, and ISO
  • White balance - the effect it can make on your photographs
  • Manual Focus - Sometimes for a tricky subject, it's best to manually focus the lens
  • Composition - Some basic tips to help achieve a well balanced photograph
  • Post Processing - Using some of the images taken on the trip, I'll be demostrating my post processing technique
  • Astro Photography (clear skies permitting)

In addition if you have any specific questions, I'll be there to help throughout.

Recommended equipment (but not necessarily essential)

  • Digital camera (ideally SLR or mirrorless)
  • A 10-stopper neutral density filter
  • A wide (ish) angle lens that you can attach the ND filter to
  • A long telephoto lens to compress distance in landscapes, and for wildlife
  • Extra camera batteries as some cameras tend to eat batteries while doing long exposures.
  • Spare memory card
  • Appropriate clothing
  • A tripod is essential for this PED
  • A remote cable trigger will make things easier
  • Torch (should we venture out after dark)

Big thank you to Mark Paine for the loan of the images on this page.   It's been a mightly long time since I last ventured into Cornwall, hence I don't have any of my own pictures I can use.  Cheers MP!

 

Photo Experience Day Review
“From a beginner I have now attended a couple of experience days and social evenings...  All have been fun as well as educational. The social days are a great way to meet like minded people, share experiences while getting more practice with the camera and I hope to do more soon.”
