Lulworth Cove / Durdle Door PED
We'll be spending the day at Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door while playing 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.

Intermediate - but all levels of abilities welcome.

Fitness Level
The Lulworth Cove part of the day is fairly flat and easy going, but the Durdle Door part is anything but.  Although we'll be parking close by, the climb down is tough on the knees, and the climb back up to the car park is hard work.  That said, there's no rush, so you can take as much time as needed to admire the view (ie catch your breath!).

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.”
