Join me for a hands-on 2-TO-1 Landscape Workshop around the beautiful county of Mayo. This workshop is designed for you and a friend and is aimed at people who have a basic working knowledge of their cameras and are looking to improve their landscape and seascape images.
The workshop will start with a chat about where we will be going and what to expect. Then I will drive us out to chosen locations to photograph the majestic Mayo landscape & coastline. You also have the option of heading to wonderful Achill Island. Together, we will visit well-known locations as well as some hidden gems.
If there’s any particular aspect or specific location you want to cover, I can accommodate this too. We will decide all of this in advance of the day.
Together, we will explore each location, all the while learning how to actually “work the scene” to get the best possible image.
I cannot guarantee fine weather – in fact, sometimes we may not want it to be fine. This is the West of Ireland after all and hopefully, we’ll get some classic West of Ireland big skies.!
There will be hands-on instruction including; Shooting in Manual Mode for Ultimate Control over your Image Making, Effective Composition and Use of Light, Benefits of Shooting in Raw over JPEG, Understanding Exposure, Aperture and Shutter Priority Modes, ISO and using the Histogram, Depth of Field and Working with Filters.
During the workshop, I will tell you all I know about capturing the scene around us. I will teach you the technical side of photography as well as the often-overlooked aesthetics of photography. We will delve into the finer points of each topic in order to give you a better understanding of the photographic process.
I will have my Macbook and Adobe Lightroom along for the day and we will go through my workflow to show how I’d process a photo. We’ll even do it on a photo that you’ve taken on the day. If you would like to know more about this 2-TO-1 workshop, feel free to contact me here.
The cost of the 2-TO-1 workshop is €400 – divide this between the 2 of you. This includes all transportation during the workshop. Not included are transport costs to/from the workshop start/finish point or any food/drink.
