Workshop Report: Aysgarth November 2012

Workshop Report: Aysgarth November 2012

  A month after our last visit, this workshop required an earlier start due to the intervening clock change but it was well worth it for a day with a variety of lighting situations, a touch of autumn colour and beautiful twilight at the end of the day at West Burton Falls. We started the […]

Using Movement in the Landscape

Using Movement in the Landscape

  I’ve always been drawn to photographing moving water and experimenting with the way the moving subject is captured in the still image, as this always leads to some level of abstraction in the final result, regardless of how it is done. Fortunately the Yorkshire Dales boasts a variety of natural water features so I […]

Workshop Report: Aysgarth and West Burton October 2012

Workshop Report: Aysgarth and West Burton October 2012

  We kicked off the day with tea and coffee (and biscuits) in the comfort of the Fox and Hounds at West Burton and had a chat about landscape photography in general and the day ahead.  Everyone was delighted with the weather, as it was a mild and sunny autumnal day which was perfect for […]

Workshop Report: Malham and Gordale August 2012

Workshop Report: Malham and Gordale August 2012

  Despite a rather forbidding weather forecast for the Yorkshire Dales, we managed to avoid most of the showers, the rumbling thunder passed us by and we were blessed with some great light during the day, especially (once again) up above Gordale Scar… After our morning teas and coffees and a briefing at the lovely […]

Some Thoughts on Composition

Some Thoughts on Composition

  There are a number of key elements that go into making a good landscape image.  Subject selection, colour (should you happen to work in colour as I do) composition, light and exposure all play their part.  Of these elements, composition is probably the hardest to describe and master. I’ve never been a big fan […]

Photographing Water in the Landscape – Reflections

Photographing Water in the Landscape – Reflections

  Fast flowing rivers and tumbling waterfalls are not the only inland water features that can make a decent landscape photograph. Slow moving shallow streams, canals, lakes and reservoirs all provide great subjects, particularly on still days when reflections come into play. When your subject is illuminated by direct sunlight, the best reflections tend to […]

Photographing Water in the Landscape – At The Coast

Photographing Water in the Landscape – At The Coast

  Water so often pays a vital part in my landscape photography, but there is always something special about photographing the sea. Maybe it’s just the bracing sea air, or perhaps the fact that I live in the middle of the country with the Yorkshire Dales on my doorstep, which is where I photograph most, […]

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey May 2012

  Our May trip through the woods at Bolton Abbey was blessed with perfect diffused light for spring foliage and flowers… We started the day with a chat about the plans for the day’s landscape photography workshop over tea and coffee at the delightful Tea Cottage at Bolton Abbey, along with a look at a […]

  Our 2012 workshop season got off to a great start with a very enjoyable day with easy walking and some great photography opportunities in unseasonably warm weather! The day started with a chat about landscape photography over coffee in the comfort of the Fox and Hounds in West Burton.  We walked across fields toward […]
