About The Event

This is a 2-part workshop - you'll have the option to attend one or the other. Or as a discount you can choose both together. Why not make it a weekend in Cornwall.

The first part will start at Sunset at St Michaels mount on the Friday Evening. The second will be at Godrevy Popint for the awesome scenery (Landscpaes & Seascapes) on the Saturday. Parking, meeting places and other information is below. Please be sure to check, as we may not be meeting at the same place you will be parking at.

Part 1 - Friday - St' Michaels Mount - 16:00 - 19:00 - Meet at ///baroness.treaty.occupy (sunset at 18:10).

Part 2 - Saturday - Godrevy point & Lighthouse - 14:00 - 17:00 Meet at the end of the field car part at ///sheets.outboard.trails (I intend to do a FREE photo walk for the sunset, if you want to stay on afterwards). 

What happens on the day?

We will be looking at a variety of subjects, including;

  • Composition
  • Rule of Thirds
  • Focal Point (What's Your subject?)
  • Basic Settings (starting point)
  • Introduction to Filters
  • Introduction to Long Exposures
  • Introduction to HDR (bracketing)
  • Introduction to Panoramas

This course is completely practical and these topics are delivered in a fun, enthusiastic and jargon-free style.

Who will be there on the day?

The training will be led by Andy Hornby. As a highly experienced, published photographer, he has a broad knowledge of all cameras to ensure you get the best from the day.

What do I need?

The topics covered, on this course, lead on perfectly from my Photography Level 2 Course, and as such, I have found this to be a popular next step. Although it is not a necessity, I do suggest that you have a good understanding of your camera, prior to the course, by being able to control Aperture, Shutter and ISO, as these topics will not be covered in great depth. 

What's included;

  • Tuition and guidance provided throughout the course, to maximise your potential.
  • You leave with full understanding of the settings used and have the ability to replicate the same elsewhere.

Essential Gear;

  • Camera and lenses - doesn't matter what you have. I can work with most camera manufacturers (I use Canon and Sony - So I will know more about them). If you have a wide angle lens, that would be beneficial.
  • Tripod - Definitely essential. most landscape images will require long exposure, You'll need something to stand it on to leave running.
  • Filters - If you have any, bring them. If it's not dark enough and you want a long exposure, Bring an ND.

Not so essential gear;

  • Off camera shutter release - this is beneficial (essential if you have to go over 30 sec exposure) as it is getting dark, you will need to up your shutter time.

Anything else is a bonus.

Parking is not free and you will need to pay in both car parks, so be prepared.
