Venue: Capture the beautiful scenic seascapes of Whitsand Bay in Cornwall. Whitsand Bay is situated near the Rame Head peninsula and has an abundance of rock formations, rock pools and a golden sands that are fantastic for reflections at low tide.
Description: The tuition will be done at your pace, where you will learn new skills and techniques that will enhance your photography. Assistance will be given to improve your
photographer's eye for a creative composition. We will use filters to balance the scene's dynamic range and slow down the crashing waves to create dramatic water movement. After capturing some worthy images we will then go back to base (seaside chalet) where I
will show you the fundamentals of post-processing using Photoshop, and ultimately produce
stunning printed imagery.
Equipment: Digital SLR Camera preferred but a compact camera is acceptable but is limited in the amount of filtration that can be used. Different techniques will be taught without the use of filters to capture the dynamic range. A sturdy tripod and head is a must
for seascape photography. I have spare filters you can borrow but please provide a 77mm conversion ring for your wide-angle lens.
Ideally, the following filters would be beneficial:
o 3-Stop Neutral Density Graduated filter
o 3-10 Stop Neutral Density filter
o Circular Polarising filter Suitable walking boots or a good pair of wellies and waterproof clothing.
