Workshop Report – Malham May 2015

Workshop Report – Malham May 2015

  With a forecast for sunny spells and light wind we were expecting an easier visit to Malham than the horizontal rain of our March visit and we set out in the morning with light cloud cover which looked promising for the morning in the woods, hoping for some sunlight breaking through in the afternoon. […]

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Middleton Woods

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Middleton Woods

Spring is a great time of year for the landscape photographer as our woodlands come to life with fresh green foliage and wildflowers. The most popular of those wildflowers has to be the native English bluebell and one of the best places to see these in abundance is at Middleton Woods, just north of Ilkley […]

Workshop Report: Malham March 2015

Workshop Report: Malham March 2015

  As we drove over Blubberhouses Moor in torrential rain toward Malham for our first workshop there this year, we were thinking more of the warm welcome at the Lister Arms than being out in the elements, but were also hoping that the weather forecast would be correct and the rain would move away to […]

Intentional Camera Movement

Intentional Camera Movement

One of the things we try to get across in our workshops is the importance of having a good, sturdy tripod to keep your camera nice and still and those images nice and sharp, especially when working with the longer exposures that we inevitably encounter as landscape photographers.  However, once in a while it’s good […]

Exposure Blending in Photoshop

Exposure Blending in Photoshop

If you’ve been on one of our workshops, one of the things that you will have noticed most is that we mention the histogram rather a lot!  It really is the key to accurate exposure in digital photography so understanding it and looking at it after every exposure is essential.  Once you’ve grasped what it’s […]

Peregrine above Malham Cove Art Award

Peregrine above Malham Cove Art Award

  It’s always great to hear about photographic successes by former workshop participants, so we were very pleased to learn recently that Robert Dutton, who attended one of our first workshops at Malham, won an award last year for one of his paintings based on his photograph of Malhamdale from Malham Cove inspired by our […]

Shutter Speed Technique

Shutter Speed Technique

  Whenever we want to capture a moving subject in the landscape, such as a river or waterfall, we need to make a choice about the shutter speed to use to record that movement to best effect.  One of the questions we get asked most often on our workshops, particularly when photographing one of the […]

Photographing Waterfalls in Winter

Photographing Waterfalls in Winter

  As the last traces of autumn colour fade away and the days shorten you may be tempted to pack the camera away for the season. Although the coming winter months can provide some spectacular days with crisp clear light which is great for landscape photography, especially with a layer of snow on the hilltops, […]

Workshop Report: Aysgarth October 2014

Workshop Report: Aysgarth October 2014

  We arrived in West Burton early enough to have a quick look at the delightful West Burton Waterfall and found the beck at the highest level we’ve seen with a raging torrent of peaty water tumbling over the falls. The peat added a touch of colour to the white water so we were immediately […]

Photographing Autumn Woodland

Photographing Autumn Woodland

  I’m afraid to say it (having just got back from my summer holiday in sunny Suffolk) but the nights seem to be drawing in a bit. Fortunately the weather is still fairly warm so we may have a few more summery days to look forward to in September, but there are definite signs that […]
