This short one-day workshop has been designed as an introduction to the fascinating art of landscape photography.
We will look at the subject’s history and theory but focus on how techniques derived from this study can be used to improve your own landscape photography.
You will receive an overview exploring different photographic methods, equipment and ways of editing landscape photography. Finally, there will be an opportunity to put your new skills into practice in the afternoon with an outdoor workshop set in the beautiful landscape of Denmark Farm.
