High Tide Coastal
Thursday 3rd May
Workshop Description

Join me for a special high tide coastal workshop. This is a workshop designed to take advantage of the particularly high tide on Thursday 3rd May. A high tide enables you to take great long exposure shots various coastal structures including sewage pipes (yes I know), piers, jetty's and sculptures. We will begin at Crosby to catch the incoming tide as it starts to surround the Gormley statues. We will then head through the Mersey Tunnel to West Kirby to photograph the Marine Lake as the tide approaches it's highest point. There are a great variety of shots as the water submerges the walkway and lake barriers. We will then head to New Brighton to photograph the sea defences and Perch Rock lighthouse. The cost of this shorter workshop will be £45. Full tuition will be given and the use of my filters if you don't yet own any. Fill in the booking form if you think this type of workshop would interest you.

The use of filters for dramatic effect will be explored. This will cover neutral density filters to slow the shutter speed creating atmospheric water movement, graduated neutral density filters to balance the exposure between the land and sky, and extreme 'big stopper' filters to create wonderful movement in the clouds and water. Technical aspects will be explored including achieving accurate exposure using the manual setting of the camera along with making creative decisions regarding aperture and depth of field.

There really is no better way to develop your craft than by 'getting out there and doing it'. I will provide you with a friendly, fun and informative workshop experience that will, I am sure, leave you with some memorable images to add to your portfolio.
