Lordington Lavender PED

In association with another photographer (who will be doing family portraits throughout the day) I've booked Lordington Lavender for the whole day.

The fields get more popular each year, but with that popularity comes problems, and getting the field empty of people for photography is a challenge.  However, with the field booked exclusively we'll have control over where people go and with a bit of co-operation we'll all be able to get the shots we want.

You'll be able to access the site from 9am through till around 8/9pm.  Facilities are limited, although there were flushing toilets on the farm available for public use last year.  Refreshments, probably best to bring your own.

I am considering bringing in a model for part of the day, and I'll update this page once I've decided how / if etc.  There will be an additional charge for the model.

Should the day be a washout, there is a cunning plan and the farm has kept some dates back for the following week.  

Event Location: 
Lordington Lavender Field (located a few minutes off the A27 between Havant and Chichester)

Price: 
£60

Dates: 
Thursday 3rd August - 9am through to around sunset.

Please contact me via my contact page

What will be covered
While it won't be a formal teaching event, I will be on hand throughout the day.  It'll be a good place to experiment with long exposures (for moving clouds) and graduated ND filters.  Also, if you're up to the challenge to try and capture some of the bees in flight.

Recommended equipment (but not necessarily essential)

  • Digital camera (ideally SLR or mirrorless)
  • Lens between 10 and 70mm will probably be perfect for the majority of this PED 
  • Extra camera batteries as some cameras tend to eat batteries while doing long exposures.
  • A tripod is essential for this PED if you want to try the long exposures
  • A remote cable trigger will make things easier
  • Macro lens if you want to get close up with the bees

 

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.”
