Seascapes PED in Kimmeridge
Details
We'll be spending the day in Kimmeridge experimenting with long exposures (milky water) using neutral density filters.   

I recommend a "10-stopper" ND filter, and with a bit of research you should find one to fit your budget, although that said I'd avoid buying from the cheaper end of the market as they often come with a horrible colour cast.   Also, avoid purchasing a "variable ND filter". I've seen several cheaper versions of these are they are useless.

Level
Intermediate - but all levels of abilities welcome.

Fitness Level
We'll be taking the short walk down to the beach from the car park - once there it's moderately flat and easy going.

Times:

£75.00

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

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

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
  • 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.”
