ISLE OF HARRIS
Isle of Harris Workshop
with Chris Davis & John Finney
2nd - 9th March 2024
Next March myself and award-winning Extreme weather & Landscape Photographer John Finney will be running a 7 day landscape and seascape photography workshop on the stunning Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides.
Situated in the Outer Hebredes Harris & Lewis is one of the most stunning regions of Scotland , the beaches along the western coast are some of the most spectacular in the UK and this is where we will be spending our time. Pristine White beaches, sand dunes and a variety of backdrops will give us plenty of opportunity to capture some stunning shots.
John & I will be on hand to help you with all aspects of the photographic experience. We will be there to help with getting the most out of your camera equipment, what camera settings are best for the type of image you want to take, how to use filtration correctly (graduated/neutral density filters and polarizers), to when not to use them at all.
We cover the full workflow of finding the best location for the weather and light direction, finding composition in the landscape, correct techniques from setting up to shoot to producing sharp balanced exposures without lens flare even when shooting directly into sunlight, long exposures for motion in the sky and flowing water, beautiful wide-angle landscapes all the way to telephoto landscape photography with techniques to avoid camera shake.
Once back in our 5* self catering accommodation we will show you how to take the RAW files we have spent the day capturing and how to process them in a way that allows your artistic vision to be realised. John & I both have different approaches to processing using camera Raw , Lightroom & photoshop so you're sure to be able to pick up new tools and techniques whatever software you use.
Our aim from this trip is to have an amazing time in a stunning location with friendly like minded people and to learn loads. Leaving with a refreshed approach to your landscape photography.
