Workshop Report – Aysgarth June 2022

Waiting for some cloud cover at Lower Aysgarth Falls

We didn’t run a June Aysgarth workshop for the first few year of our workshops, preferring the early spring and autumn slots for a better chance of nice diffused light for the waterfalls. However, having tried it one year it’s been a firm favourite in the schedule ever since…

Workshop Report – Bolton Abbey May 2022

Our second Spring visit to Bolton Abbey and Strid wood was now upon us. Although the two workshops are just 4 weeks apart, the woodland changes dramatically. The Bluebells, although there are a few are still around have now made way for the vast carpets of Wild Garlic.

Bolton Abbey Photography Workshop

Our second workshop of the year brought about the long awaited return to Bolton Abbey in spring, after two years of missing out on the bluebells! A day of sunny intervals made the light challenging at times but we had some nice spells of cloud cover for photographing in Strid Wood and some good sunlight for photographing the abbey.

Workshop Report – Aysgarth Falls, March 2022

Workshop Report – Malham August 2021

Our second workshop outing of 2021 and a return visit to Malham. The weather once again forecast as rain all day!!

We met up with the group at the Lister Arms for hot refreshments and our introduction to the workshop, plus our interpretation of what make a great landscape photograph. We describe 5 elements needed to capture the wow image, and one of them being light. Looking outside the pub window, there is little light and heavy summer rain! It’s a hard sell, but bad weather days often give the best opportunity for interesting images, and gaps in the clouds where light does break through is much better than a ‘boring’ bright sunny day for photography.
