This workshop is offered in conjunction with the RPS. This day will start by meeting in the Castle Car park in Beaumaris and travelling the short distance to Penmon Point Lighthouse to spend time photographing the lighthouse and Puffin Island. We will explore different compositions, making the most of the great foreground rocks that provide a great lead in to the lighthouse. We will also experiment with the use of filters to create wonderful ethereal long exposure images. We will then head to South Stack lighthouse to photograph this very imposing, wild location from a number of vantage points. The final location will be Newborough Beach and Llanddwyn Lighthouse. Newborough offers lots of photographic opportunities as we walk towards the lighthouse. Tutor Colin Jarvis will bring his converted infrared camera for you to use as there are some great spots to shoot IR on the dunes. We will aim to be at the lighthouse on Llanddwyn by tea time (bring a packed lunch) to be ready to photograph this iconic location at sunset 20.30 to 21.00The day will incorporate using ND filters, (graduated and stoppers) for traditional landscapes and for long exposure photography. Colin will bring spare sets of Lee filters for participants to use. Please note there is a fee of £3 to access the car park at Penmon Point and a fee of £5 to access the car park at Newborough. The rocks at Penmon point are uneven and can be slippy when wet and some are covered with seaweed so some form of grippers attached to wellington boots or walking boots are recommended. We will have a pub lunch in Beaumaris and then we can pick up a sandwich from a supermarket ready for tea on Llanddwyn Island.
Food arrangements – Pub lunch and packed lunch for tea. Please bring: warm clothing, spare trousers to change back into in case you get wet, wellington boots, grippers for the boots, walking boots
