============ learning from the previous event, BRING WELLIES!!! - Its not mandatory but will open up a lot of photos you wont otherwise be able to access. And wear WARM CLOTHES! ===========================
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 area of photography dealt with is another cornerstone in landscape photography - how to create Depth and Perspective
West Wittering is a great place for such photography, and we will meet up in the car park at West Wittering. The Postcode for the area is a general one - PO20 8AJ will get you to Pound Road of the B2179. Once you have turned into Pound Road the entrance to the West Wittering Estate is on your left after fifty metres. Follow the road right down to the coast where you will pay your parking fees. At that time of day you wont need a mortgage. Go through the barriers and go as far as you can and park up ready for a start time of 17.15
Low water is at 18.22, which means we have time for a briefing about what Depth and Perspective is and how to achieve it before setting off with a challenge/exercise along those lines. I'll then catch each of you up during the afternoon to guide, give tips and help you before we all settle down to put into practice what we have learned at sunset at 19.44.
Be warned that the car park closes at 20.30!
Which means that you will need to leave the beach latest at 20.15
We'll meet up afterwards at 20.45 or thereabouts in the Shore Inn in East Wittering (postcode PO20 8DY) for a relaxed drink, a social chat and to show off your images. Bring your camera with your images in it to review what you have learned during the day with your peers, its also an opportunity to ask more about Depth and Perspective, or indeed anything else photographic :)
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 :)
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 camera you have, not what settings you choose to use.
There is no need to walk a long distance for this one, low water reveals pools in the sand just 200 metres from your car.
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 bring wellies!!!
Any other questions, fire away in the comments section! :)
