Portland Bill Photo Experience Day
We'll be spending the day at one of my favourite places, Portland Bill.  Throughout the day we will be 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
Fairly easy going, although to get to the best locations we will have to climb over some small rocks.

Event dates:
Please visit the events page.

Changes depending on the time of year.  The aim will be to still be there for sunset.

Event Location: 
Portland Bill, Dorset.

This event will be limited to 10 people.

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.”
