Improve Your Photography Surrounded By Inspirational Scenery
The wild and untamed Lake District landscape inspired the poetry and writings of the early 19th century romantic Lakeland poets, William Wordsworth amongst them, who were so enthralled by its epic grandeur that they sought to capture its beauty in words.
The variety of scenery in this region is unrivalled and offers extraordinary possibilities for image making. Photograph the mystical stone circle of Castlerigg, sheltered beneath Blencathra, as well as early morning mist and reflections in tranquil Derwent Water. There is also an abundance of delightful tumbling streams and woodland waterfalls to be found here, as well as some spectacular panoramic views
Develop Your Photographic Technique And Gain New Skills
This workshop presents us with numerous opportunities to capture on camera something of the majestic beauty of the Lake District. We will help you to make the best use of your camera, as well as mastering exposure, composition and learning how to work with the available light.
You will also be able to experiment with long exposures with the use of filters and we will have a selection of Kase filters on hand for you to try, including graduated filters and ND filters.
There will be the chance to receive constructive feedback on your images in our group critique sessions, plus plenty of time for ‘photography talk’ over dinner at one of the friendly pubs in Keswick.
This is a great opportunity to spend a few days with like-minded people, immersed in photography in one of the most beautiful regions of the British Isles
