Durdle Door & Lulworth Cove (Feb-2020)
Time & Location
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. This time I am doing it the other way around. The first part will start at Durdle Door. The second part will be at Lulworth Cove.
Not for the faint of heart - this is going to be a long walking day, unless you want to take your car from location 1 to location 2, but just the areas that we will be shooting in, there are a lot of steap hills to climb.
The initial meeting point for the first part of the day, will be at the top of the steps to the Door and Man of War beach (NOT THE CAR PARK). You cau use the https://www.What3Words.com (///creamed.mended.lads) website to pinpoint where we will meet on Google Maps. I plan on being there earlier, for the sunrise and will do a FREE photo walk event. look out for that on my website, if you are interested.
What happens on the day?
We will be looking at a variety of subject, including;
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Durdle Door Car Park - BH20 5PU (drive past the caravan site) - The 8:30 meeting place is not the car park itself - you will need to walk down to the top of the steps to Durdle Door. Location pinpoint on https://www.What3Words.com = ///creamed.mended.lads
Lulworth Cove Car Park - BH20 5RQ - If you are coming for the second part of the event, we will meet in the car park at 13:30. https://www.What3Words.com = ///cheat.scratches.punks
My suggestion is to park at Lulworth car park (I'm getting there very early and walk to Durdle Door to get a sunrise shot. The walk is about 1 mile and over some steep hills. We will be walking back that way to get to Lulworth later.
We will be walking very far, so comfortable clothng and shes will be a necessity. Layers to stay warm and gloves would be advisable.
Andy Hornby may record video for my YouTube Channel, so if you prefer not to be on camera, please let me know on the day and I will do my best to exclude you from the Vlog.
