Wicklow Workshop Fundamentals: Information
Are you just starting out or struggling with the fundamental setup of your camera? Would you like to start driving the outcome of your imagery? Our fundamentals course is designed to lay, or solidify a foundation for making landscape photographs that will last for life. Sharp controlled exposures. Balanced compositions and imagery that you would be proud to hang on your wall. It’s a hands on photography course where you learn by doing. We have found through experience that this hands on approach is the easiest and quickest way to learn landscape photography. You will also be brought to hand picked stunning locations and given advice on where and when to shoot an array of locations in the Wicklow area. Groups are small and the amount of individual attention that each participant receives is substantial. 16 hours contact in total over 2 days including a sunset and sunrise shoot. It’s a huge eye opener and a great fun weekend for everyone involved.
The main photographic focus will be on landscape photography and abstract depictions of the natural environment. A fully manual camera (digital SLR) and tripod are essential. We want to teach you how to make art not just take snaps.
Photography Workshop Weekend Program
We do not set out a specific location itinerary, as Daragh will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide however, we will be visiting areas such as Wicklow Head, the Sally Gap, Powerscourt, Glendalough and more. We will be photographing lakes, rivers, forests, bogland and seascapes as well as intimate details found in all locations.
Starting and finishing times of our Wicklow Workshop Fundamentals are dependant on time of year. As a general guide however we start after sunrise on Saturday laying down the skills needed for a sunset shoot that evening. We will then shoot sunrise on Sunday morning followed up by a post production session on Photoshop and Lightroom.
We feel this structure to the Wicklow Workshop Fundamentals weekend gives us the best chance of making great pictures and learning. As we only have a maximum of 7 participants everyone will be able to learn at their own pace.
