Tailored tuition with local award-winning professional photographer John Finney , in the beautiful Peak District National Park.
No matter what your photographic experience Johns 1 day workshops are aimed at any level of photographer who wants to learn and develop their landscape photography.
Whether you are a beginner and you just want to learn how to use your camera or you would like to learn more advanced techniques in getting the most out of your landscape photography, Johns workshops are tailored to suit your needs.
John will show you how to get the most out of your camera equipment, everything from what camera settings are best for the type of image you want to take, how to use filtration correctly (graduated/neutral density filters and polarizers), to when not to use them at all.
John will cover the full workflow of finding the best location for the weather and light direction, finding composition in the landscape, and using correct techniques from setting up to shoot to producing sharp balanced exposures without lens flare even when shooting directly into sunlight.
We can cover long exposures for motion in the sky, trees, and flowing water, beautiful wide-angle landscapes to telephoto landscape photography with techniques to avoid camera shake.
Let John show you how to process your images correctly using Adobe software, from basic adjustments to watermarking your pictures ready for social media to a full day of tuition learning how to set up Adobe RAW software to process your images correctly, getting the most out of your RAW files and avoiding technical flaws such as fringing, unnatural colour separation, excessive digital noise, and saturation to produce a commercial level image,John can also show you more advanced techniques like masking, layers, focus stacking and image blending.
Transport is provided from an arranged meeting point and between locations we travel to in the Peak District. We typically stop for at least an hour for lunch at a cafe or public house where we can review images and John can give you a short lesson with Adobe RAW.
John will have some Kase filters you may test out , if thread sizes match up , and a tripod can be supplied for the day if required.
