Workshop Report – Malham March 2016

Workshop Report – Malham March 2016

Our first visit to Malham of the new season had a weather forecast following a typical pattern of rain early on and some possible bright spells later in the day so we were confident of some good waterfall photography in the morning and hoped for some nice light at the end of the afternoon. We […]

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Saltaire

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Saltaire

We generally stick to landscape locations here on the Natural Light blog but for urban Yorkshire locations worthy of the landscape photographer’s attention the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire has to be high on the list! Saltaire was founded by Yorkshire textiles industrialist Titus Salt on the banks of the River Aire, and it […]

Time of Year and Direction of Light

Time of Year and Direction of Light

Light is a subject that we talk about rather a lot on our workshops. Different times of day – sunrise, sunset, twilight and weather conditions all play their part in determining how your selected landscape subject is lit. Also, time of year has a big impact on lighting your subject due to the different direction […]

Depth of Field and Sensor Format

Depth of Field and Sensor Format

Depth of field is a subject that we talk about rather a lot on our workshops, so I thought it would be worth having a look at it specifically with reference to camera sensor format, particularly as we are seeing an increasing number of workshop participants with compact system cameras with smaller sensor formats such […]

Workshop Report – Bolton Abbey October 2015

Workshop Report – Bolton Abbey October 2015

We could hardly believe that we’d arrived at the last workshop of our fifth year of Natural Light Workshops but were pleased to have a a full group and a healthy weather forecast for a good day’s autumnal photography ahead as we settled down in the comfort of the Tea Cottage at Bolton Abbey. The […]

Workshop Report – Malham September 2015

Workshop Report – Malham September 2015

So, our final visit to Malham and Gordale Scar of 2015 was upon us and we were pleased to see that the weather forecast suggested that we’d be pretty safe in leaving the brollies behind on this occasion.  In fact, a warm and sunny day was predicted, so we were actually quite happy to see […]

Fine Art Print Service

Fine Art Print Service

During our post-processing sessions we demonstrate how to go about making professional quality prints either with your own printer at home or by using a lab.  Sadly, we’re not able to offer printing facilities at the sessions themselves, but we’re happy to announce that we’re now offering our workshop post-processing session participants an additional print […]

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Robin Hood’s Bay

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Robin Hood’s Bay

We’ve had a look at Robin Hood’s Bay on the blog before, but it’s such a great location for both sunrise and sunset landscape photography that it’s always worth another visit.  It’s a beautiful little fishing village situated on the Yorkshire coast just south of Whitby and proves very popular in the summer months, but […]

Workshop Report – Malham June 2015

Workshop Report – Malham June 2015

  We were confident enough of the weather forecast to leave behind (most) of the umbrellas and make sure we’d packed the sunscreen instead when we set out for our June workshop at Malham.  We settled in to the snug at the Lister Arms once more for a welcoming cup of coffee and our introductory talk […]

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Nought Moor and Two Stoops

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Nought Moor and Two Stoops

With our spring workshops under our belt we’re looking forward to summer (if the weather ever warms up!) and trips to Aysgarth and Malham. As the fresh spring greens fade away summer can be a tricky time for landscape photography, but something to look forward to later in the season is a splash of colour […]
