An Introduction to countryside photography with Mary on a practical field tutorial in the naturally outstanding Chiltern Hills.
You’ve had your new phone for a while, delighted at the possibilities your multi-lens camera could bring. But, you’re not sure how to capture landscapes when you are out and about in the countryside? Things looks flat, small or smudged. Sound familiar?
I will not be telling you how to get all technical. I will instead show you how to look: to actually see what is all around you, to help you capture what resonates and what you would like to share with your friends and online community.
Aimed at those who feel they would enjoy this NEW practical, but relaxed field tutorial where you can learn how to look and see new angles and possibilities - camera’s and phones welcome! There will be time to practice new techniques with guidance, hints and composition tips so you can develop a new approach to your photography.
We will talk about the thought process of creating (not just taking) photos. I will offer tips on composition, guide your photographic eye and help you develop a proactive photography mindset, ensuring you can apply your new ‘looking abilities’ when photographing in the future.
This three-hour workshop takes place in a former chalk quarry in the Chiltern Hills, near Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire. This Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) presents a particular natural landscape and a rare wildflower meadow so typical of the chalk downland with a twist of industrial archeology.
