Introduction to Landscape Photography

Sunday, 26th August 2018 : We begin with the theory of how to capture a beautiful landscape picture............and then venture outdoors and get creative. The course begins in Stonehaven, just south of Aberdeen, with a Going Digital presentation on landscape photography. We will probably head up to spectacular Dunnottar Castle before returning to Stonehaven Harbour for lunch and to practise blurring water using long exposures. You may need warm clothing, waterproofs (this is Scotland!!), walking boots and be prepared to walk a couple of miles during the day. You will need a tripod and Dawn will show you how to use polarising, graduated and neutral density filters during the day. £95

Testimonials
 

Dawn is a fabulous photography teacher as well as a fabulous photographer. I have taken the beginner’s course as well as numerous workshops with Dawn, and I have participated in many of the photography excursions she has organized. I have learned so much, have had so much fun, and my photography has improved tremendously, thanks to Dawn. She teaches the technical aspects of photography clearly, with step-by-step instructions and useful and interesting activities and assignments. She creates a welcoming, collaborative learning environment and is passionate about supporting the creativity of each participant. I highly recommend her courses and workshops. Thank you so much, Dawn! Jen Kelly

"Meeting Dawn and having taken some classes offered by her at the Photography School has been a big boost for my confidence taking photos.  She has challenged me to step out of my comfort zone of continually using auto settings on my camera and I now have a much better understanding of my equipment. Her patience, experience and explanations have been very beneficial. Thanks Dawn!" Dianne Boesma 

"The Camera Craft workshop was truly inspiring. For years I've grappled with instruction manuals, never quite understanding the terminology and being fearful of "pressing the wrong button". Thanks to your incredible knowledge and patient instruction skills, I now have the confidence to switch off "auto" and begin the exciting process of exploring the technical aspects of my camera. I no longer view the myriad dials and buttons as "scary" and, instead, see them for what they are - as the tools to unlocking a world with seemingly endless creative possibilities. I'm thrilled"  Julie Dolphin

"Thank you very much for your time and patience yesterday. Your advice and help was exceptionally useful, and I will carefully consider all the information you presented. I'm very impressed that you tailored the discussion on the fly so as not to waste any time covering topics that I already had a basic understanding of. I really felt that I had value for money, and I will consider another session sometime in the future when I have absorbed and acted on all of your suggestions. Thank you again, very much!" Aiden Williams

"I enjoyed our journey discovering our cameras and talents, but above all, I enjoyed getting to know you and having had lots of fun during this course.  Many, many thanks." Eliane Ruster
