Commencing in the classroom with a briefing to make sure that you know how to set up your camera, before venturing out to your locations for the day where your tutor will take you to the best vantage points to capture stunning images, and be on hand to answer your questions and discuss your images with you throughout the day. At the end of the day you'll return to the classroom to review and discuss your images as a group.

All cameras welcome.

Equipment: To get the most from this workshop you will require a tripod (full height). Loan tripods are often available, please contact your local tutor.

Optional Equipment:
Your tutor will be able to loan you graduated filters to try on the day. Useful, but by no means essential are your own graduated filters, polarising filter, remote shutter release.
