Wicklow Workshop Core Skills 1: Information

Our core skills workshops are geared towards specific learning outcomes. The purpose is to take a series of topics, place them in the landscape photography context, and impart essential knowledge to new and experienced photographers a like. This workshop is more geared towards people staring their photographic journey. The workshop however, would also be relevant to someone starting out in landscape as a speciality.

The day will begin with coffee and a discussion of the core attributes of your camera. We will then spend the rest of the day out shooting putting our discussion into practice. The workshop will conclude with a sunset shoot.

Topics Covered: Aperture and Shutter Speed, ISO (the exposure triangle), Tripod Use, Focusing, White Balance, RAW, Filters Intro

Photography Workshop Weekend Programme

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 could be photographing lakes, rivers, forests, bogland and seascapes as well as intimate details found in all locations.

Starting and finishing times of our Wicklow Core Skills Workshops are dependant on time of year. As a general guide, however, we will have a 6 hour day culminating in a sunset.

We feel this structure to the day gives us the best chance of making great pictures and learning. As we only have a maximum of 8 participants so everyone will be able to learn at their own pace.
