Workshop Information – Connemara in Focus
Our Connemara and Clare Workshop takes place amongst some of Ireland’s finest natural beauty. Our focus on this workshop will be on the natural beauty of Connemara for the first few days then moving south to Co Clare for 2 days to photograph the stunning Cliffs of Moher, Loop Head and the Burren. Michael has made countless trips to the West so learning new skills will be combined with photographing handpicked beautiful locations. If you want to photograph dramatic mountains, lakes and seascapes then this is the workshop for you.
Our proximity to our shoots will allow us to become immersed in nature and the group dynamic. 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 take snaps.
Workshop Weekend Programme
We do not set out a specific location itinerary, as Michael will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide, however, we will be visiting the lakes, forests and waterfalls within Connemara including Derryclare Lough, the Inagh Pass, the Delphi Valley and much much more.
Our days will entail sunrise and sunset shoots. We will be having a break for a few hours after breakfast until lunch if you need a snooze or would like to explore your surroundings a bit more. The day will then be divided between shooting, critiquing with some post-processing in Photoshop and Lightroom. The focus will be very much on the shooting however.
