A glorious tour of all that North Wales has to offer from the majestic mountains of the Snowdon and the Glyder ranges to wonderful coastal areas including Anglesey and Llandudno.
The workshop will be based near to Bangor so that we can explore this photographically rich area easily. We will spend a day exploring the Snowdon area including Llyn Padarn, Llanberis, Llyn Ogwen, Llyn Gwynant and the Aberglaslyn Pass. Another day will be spent on Anglesey visiting the Suspension Bridge across the Menai straits, the lighthouses of Penmon Point, South Stack and Llanddwyn Island and St. Cwyfans Church. We will then spend a day visiting Aber Falls, Conwy (great for fish and chips!), Llandudno, Bodnant Gardens (NT admission applies) and Rhos on Sea. Finally we will head East to visit Capel Curig, Betws-y-Coed, the Snowdon View from Plas Y Brenin, The Fairy Glen and Llyn Crafnant.
As well as being guided, with a fantastic ratio of up to 4 clients to one workshop leader, you can also rest assured that you will be able to spend lots of time working on a one to one basis to not only capture some fantastic images, but more importantly to further your skills. Whether you are a beginner who needs to learn some of the more technical aspects of exposure, depth of field and filters, or a more advanced photographer who wants to really hone their compositional skills, your needs will be catered for. Places are limited to four clients to ensure plenty of tuition during your visit. There is the possibility of return transport from Preston, Lancashire (limited to three clients). The workshop fee includes single occupancy quality accommodation including cooked breakfast, full tuition during the day and post processing sessions in the evening. Technical skills including 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.
