Dungeness & Rye Workshop Weekend

A special weekend in deepest darkest Kent as we'll be exploring the desolate wastelands of Dungeness.  Wait, I'm not exactly selling this very well am I?   Actually it's a wonderful place, a photographers paradise, in a dark, bleak, depressing way.  I love photographing there, and hopefully you'll see what I mean after you've visited.

As a bonus, and why it's such a special weekend, we'll be combining it with Rye Bonfire night on the Saturday, which is, or at least was the last time I visited, quite the most wonderfully bonkers firework / bonfire evening you've ever likely to have attended.  I've been inching to return for a few years, but it's always clashed with a different event, but this year, it's on!

I'm also hoping we'll have time to visit Bodium Castle. 

Event dates:
Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November 2017

Event Location: 
Rye & Dungeness

Price: 
£125 for the weekend

What will be covered

  • Using a "10-stopper" ND filter
  • Manual mode - using Shutter, Aperture, and ISO
  • 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 demonstrating 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
  • A torch - should we venture out at night

 

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.”
 

 

I've been using Aurora HDR 2018 for a while now, and when used properly (ie sparingly) I've been really rather impressed by the results possible from it.  This photo, for example, was merged from 3 images taken at different exposures (exposing for the buildings and sky).  Although good results are also possible to obtain from single images.  

However, don't take my word for it, download the free trail version for yourself and give it a go.
