SUMMER SOLSTICE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

PHOTOGRAPH THE SUNSET ON THE LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR. PHOTOGRAPH WOODLANDS AND WATERFALLS IN THE DAY
WITH AUTHOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDEBOOK, PEAK DISTRICT THROUGH THE LENS
Meet at 14:00
Price: £95 per person (Deposit £40)
Join me on the 21st June to capture the summer solstice at sunset.
The summer solstice marks the longest day of the year when the sun sets at 21:37. It marks a change from unsociable photography hours retreating to make way for the darker nights. Join me on a workshop to capture the event and celebrate the occasion.
We will spend the full day photographing the Peak District, working on our composition and camera techniques throughout the day to best help you capture a great photo when the sunset comes round.
During the day, we will visit from waterfalls and woodland as the mid-day sun will be high in the sky and the light harsh. We will try and choose an appropriate location for the sunset that will be quiet such as Magpie Mine. Unfortunately areas such as Arbor Low and Nine Ladies Stone Circle become too busy. Another alternative is we may choose to try an hunt the unique phenomenon which is the Double Sunset over at Chrome Hill. See more on that here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_sunset
We will initially meet at 14:00 to do a meet and greet with each other before heading out to somewhere like Lathkill Tufa Weir or Padley Gorge to do some waterfall photography.
We will break for some food around 17:00 and if there’s time we will do an introduction to post-processing to show you the basics of Lightroom and how to edit an image.
Throughout the day we will look at techniques such as focusing, use of filters vs exposure blending, composition, working with the light and more.
I am more than happy to discuss other more advanced techniques on 1-2-1 basis as well as to the group, depending on what is beneficial.
The day is tailored around you as much as possible and I strive to give each of you on the course for that day the best day possible. At the end of the day, you will have hopefully learnt new techniques and taken away some imagery you will be proud of. I am a friendly and relaxed tutor and I welcome you to keep in touch with me after the course to ask me any questions you may have looked over on the day.
There will be a maximum group size of 4 meaning there will be plenty of 1-2-1 time. I will be on hand throughout the day for any questions and my focus will be on ensuring you have the best day possible.
