The Yorkshire Dales photography workshop is a wide ranging expedition that covers some of the notable locations in this area of outstanding natural beauty. We will travel towards Hawes, Aysgarth and West Burton to photograph some of the delightful waterfalls in this part of the Dales, including Cotter Force, Cauldron Falls, Mill Gill Force, West Burton Falls, Hardraw Force (£3 charge applies) and Aysgarth Falls.
There will be ample photographic opportunities en-route as the light and conditions change. This is an excellent opportunity to explore some of the Yorkshire Dales's gems. 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.
NB The terrain will be rocky, uneven and slippery. Not suited to people with limited mobility or wheelchair users. We will break for lunch at a cafe or pub in Hawes.
