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, […]

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 […]

Shooting landscapes in the summer

Shooting landscapes in the summer

Its that time of year that most think is difficult for landscape photography, the sun is high in the sky which gives a harsh light, the foliage can be very green, and of course the sun rises very early and sets much later. But with a bit of planning and the right light, you can shoot […]

Capturing Images in the Snow

Capturing Images in the Snow

  Its coming up to that time of year when snow can be expected at anytime and can make for very striking images. Photography in the snow can be difficult to expose right with all the reflective surfaces, often-bright skies and of course getting around. Using our five steps to making a great landscape photograph, […]

Working With Autumn Light

Working With Autumn Light

Officially running from September 22nd till December 20th, autumn is a truly exciting time for landscape photography. Like spring, during the autumn season our surroundings change dramatically and it’s a great time to venture out to those ancient woodlands and sweeping Yorkshire valleys, to capture the glorious colour. Each year I have found autumn to be […]

Working with Winter Light

Working with Winter Light

  What a dreary time of year winter is! It’s still dark when we get up, the days are very short and it’s damp and cold, with huge heating bills to boot!  But hang on a minute – with such short days the best times for landscape photography, sunrise and sunset are at a more […]

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 […]

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 […]
