Enjoy the wonders of a second springtime with this fabulous springtime workshop based on Dartmoor.
Dartmoor represents some of the most beautiful scenery in the entire UK. One of the last true wilderness’s, it is a complex and difficult shoot without guidance.
This is an exceptional springtime landscape workshop to take advantage of the beautiful carpets of wild bluebells and fabulous white hawthorn trees, which bloom in abundance throughout the end of May. There are beautiful rivers, fabulous viewpoints and possibly misty forests to explore and photograph, a workshop not to be missed.
Dartmoor is an array of classic photographic subjects, but one of the beauties about a springtime visit is the carpets of bluebells, which unlike beach woodlands, occur in abundance in the outdoors, across hillsides. With a ‘second spring’ occurring at the end on May, the greens will be in their absolute peak of saturation, making good photography available anytime of the day. These are also exceptional for infrared photography, something I will be demonstrating throughout the weekend.
We will also shoot wildflowers which are in abundance. The hedgerows are brimming with colour and a detailed look can reveal some truly beautiful subjects for macro photography, which David will also demonstrate.
Based on Dartmoor itself, we will be on location and not too far from shelter should the weather change. The changeable light can work to our total advantage, so expect to be shooting at all times and taking advantage of the dawn and evening light.
Whether expert or beginner, there is something for everyone. Expect technical and compositional advice as well as evenings of helpful conversation and post processing assistance guaranteed.
Course starts at 12pm on Friday 26th and finishes at 5pm on Sunday 28th May.
