• Rule of Thirds at Hotwalls (Portsmouth)

    Clarence Pier Car Park

    £15.00

    WHAT IT IS Degree of difficulty; 3 (easy) This is an on location mentoring session. Its designed to be fun and not so formal as that sounds ...... for up to six people, the day starts with a challenge, followed by 1:1 mentoring and ending up at a local hostelry to relax and show off any soopah pix you may have captured! More details below :) The session is all about applying the real cornerstone of landscapes - the Rule of Thirds. On the Thursday before the event I'll send you an A4 introduction to the Rule of Thirds - do read and assimilate the information, it takes the place of formal teaching which has proven to be impractical at the beach :) LOGISTICS Hotwalls remains one of the great understated places for photography. Unlike most events, its a photo walk - and the walk from Clarence pier to Spice Island is crammed with all sorts of photographic goodies, from the concrete and wood seats to concrete knots and short piers all the way through to the Spinnaker Tower. We will meet in the Car Park at Clarence pier, postcode PO1 2NJ. If this leads you to a very nearby but nevertheless wrong location, the car park is at the western end of Long Curtain Road. Meet there for a start time of 19.00 We will have time for me to do a mini briefing, which is no more than to jog your memories and focus you on the Rule of Thirds, and to orientate you on the walk. I'll then catch each of you up during the evening to guide, give tips and help you before we all settle down to put into practice what we have learned at sunset at 21.15 We'll meet up after sunset in the Spice Island Inn for a packet of crisps or two before walking back to our cars. HOW WILL WE KNOW IF THE EVENT IS GOING AHEAD? Just about the only reason to cancel the event is if there is a reasonable chance of rain. I will get a very good idea two-three days ahead of the event and cancel, if appropriate, at that point. If I cancel I will offer refunds :) If we are going ahead then I will send out that A4 training sheet giving details about the compositional techniques involved. Look out for it! WHO IS THIS FOR? As its about one of the basics of composition its for anyone who wishes to improve their photography. It does not matter at all what camera or mobile phone you have, nor what settings you choose to use. You will need to be able to walk for 60 minutes or so, from Clarence Pier to Spice Island - and back ESSENTIALS AND ADMIN My phone number in case you get lost (it happens!) is[masked]. Bring warmer clothes than you think necessary - at the coast its often cooler and even a moderate wind will chill you ..... and for this event wear decent footwear, its flattish and over concrete, but as always good shoes enhance the experience! Any other questions, fire away in the comments section! :)
