During our next Seasonal Woodlands Photography workshop on Saturday July 14th, we shall be exploring how to capture the lush green shades and textures of summer, and our aim is to make an image achieve what you want. It’s not all about the number of ‘likes’, or capturing those photographs of iconic locations: it’s about creating something unique that makes you feel proud.
We meet at 2.30 in the Garden Studio and begin with a short discussion and review of relevant images by highly-respected landscape photographers and a chance to share our own experiences and photography worries. All levels are welcome. Our friendly and relaxed small group set-up means I can tailor the day to individual needs. Create an image which is yours and yours alone. It is only by experimenting that we find and develop our own style!
I shall also be drawing on my experience and knowledge as a guidebook author to take you to one or more locations which offer the chance to get to grips with teasing a fine composition out of a woodland. We may look to juxtapose a second element in the picture such as a Wealden stream, a grassy glade or rocks. My fifth guidebook, Day Walks on the High Weald, will be published by Vertebrate Publishing this August and my in depth research and varied walking experience means that I have a wealth of local knowledge including a veritable list of potential locations for us to explore. Depending on the light and weather, I will select which woodlands might serve us best as inspiration. The workshop should finish about 7 p.m.
