Dartmoor Workshop Weekend

Tripods will be essential for this PED, as will a quality torch.

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 around lunchtime on the Friday.  Either on Friday or Saturday evening we'll be trying our hand at "wire wool" on one of the tors.

On Saturday & Sunday we'll be exploring Dartmoor, driving around, stopping where we find interesting things. 

The hotel for this trip will be Travelodge Okehampton Whiddon Down.  You'll need to make your own booking directly with the hotel.

Event Location: 
Dartmoor National Park

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

 

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.”
