Fylde Coast Shoot
Friday 13th July
Workshop Description

The coast of the North West of England has some wonderful locations for Photography. This workshop takes in the photographic delights of Cleveleys with it's new seafront architecture and the wonderfully evocative Mary's Shell. It then moves on to the scuppered boats known locally as the Wyre Wrecks which offer amazing photographic opportunities at either low or high tide. The workshop then visits the new Obervation Tower at Rossall Point, a very striking architectural gem on this coastline. Moving down the coast to Blackpool to photograph the pier architecture including the only pier in the country with a wheel, Central Pier. Time permitting we continue down to St. Annes and Lytham to photograph some of the gems on this part of the coast including St. Annes Pier and the lifeboat jetty which can make a great composition at either high or low tide.

Photography workshops are an ideal way to 'learn the craft' in the field. They run on most Saturday's and Sunday's throughout the year and cost £90. The courses are limited to 4 participants. A single day's tuition will be provided that covers composition, previsualizing the scene, the best lens for the job, composing for colour or black and white.

The use of filters for dramatic effect will be explored. This will cover neutral density filters to slow the shutter speed creating atmospheric water movement, graduated neutral density filters to balance the exposure between the land and sky, and extreme 'big stopper' filters to create wonderful movement in the clouds and water. Technical aspects will be explored including achieving accurate exposure using the manual setting of the camera along with making creative decisions regarding aperture and depth of field.

There really is no better way to develop your craft than by 'getting out there and doing it'. I will provide you with a friendly, fun and informative workshop experience that will, I am sure, leave you with some memorable images to add to your portfolio.
