Join me for a photography workshop, where you’ll learn to create unusual landscape images in the dark, using a variety of light sources including portable studio equipment.
The workshop will take place at Hardwick Park, near Sedgefield. Hardwick Park is an ornamental park, dating from the 1750s with a wide range of interesting landscape and architectural features. We’ve had workshops there before, but have never done anything like this.
The photograph on this page is lightpainted with a torch, to give you some idea of the sort of thing you can expect. However, we’ll be taking things to the next level. I’ll take care of the lighting. All you need to do is take the photographs.
This event is suitable for absolute beginners, but also for experienced photographers who have yet to take the step into manual mode. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to practice, under expert supervision.
You’ll need to provide your own camera, ideally a DSLR or CSC, although bridge cameras are also suitable. You’ll also need a tripod and a torch. The only torch you need to bring is one for finding your way around safely. I’ll provide the professional lighting gear. However, if you’d like advice on buying a torch, just message me.
Please note that in order to keep prices down, bookings are non-refundable if you’re unable to come (but it may possible to transfer it to someone else, upon request).
Joining instructions will be sent to everyone around two days before the event. This gives me time to take account of any special factors, such as weather for outdoor courses. Also, as you might appreciate, I don’t want to make those details available to the general public.
As of yet (I’m sorry to say!), I’m not able to control the weather, but will keep a close eye on the forecast. If there’s anything which causes a significant safety issue, such as high winds or heavy snow, the workshop will be postponed and you’ll be offered a new date and/or alternatives.
Book early to secure your place.
