Lake District 2 Day Workshop - 9/10 Nov 2019

Lone Tree

A two day autumn photography workshop in the stunning Lake District with two nights overnight single occupancy accommodation in a Cottage in the centre of the region. 

Duncan will choose the locations for the group to visit and photograph depending on weather conditions close to the day but these can include:

- Buttermere
- Coniston Water
- Wast Water
- Blea Tarn
- Hodge Close
- Ashness Bidge
- Derwent Water

Each location is magnificent and a great opportunity to photograph the beautiful autumn colours of the Lake District. The actual agenda for the days will remain flexible so as to best capture the locations in the best lighting conditions.

A small group of up to 3  participants will be guided by Duncan on the workshop.  Duncan's approach is more intuitive and creative than technical but covers all aspects including:

1 - choosing locations based on weather conditions

2 - equipment choices

3 - capturing / creating the mood of the location

4 - creating the right composition

5 - getting the right exposure such as shutter speeds, aperture ISO to capture the scene

6 - use of ND (Neutral Density) filters

This workshop will start before sunrise and finish after sunset on the saturday and before sunrise on the sunday so would involve quite long days on location.  Therefore appropriate clothing (and spare dry clothing) and footwear is strongly recommended - A full kit list will be issued before the workshop to ensure that you get the maximum enjoyment from it.

We will meet up on the friday evening at the accommodation ready for the first full day in the field to ensure that time is maximised photographing. An opportunity will exist to get food/refreshments during  each day and we will visit a local pub type restaurant on the saturday evening for a meal after sunset.
