Two Snowdonia Workshops on Fri 17th/Sat 18th May 2019. Each workshop will be limited to 5 people max.


Both workshops will concentrate on exploring different landscape photography techniques focusing on getting the most out of you and your camera. Topics will include composition, the use of leading lines, reflections and the creative use of depth of field. Technical aspects will also be covered including the exposure triangle and the use of the histogram. There will be the opportunity for some long exposure work. Guidance will be given in working with both colour and monochrome images. Both days will end with a review.

The workshops will be led by David Yeoman (www.davidyeomanphotography.co.uk), David is an experienced landscape photographer and has run many workshops both under his own name and for local camera shops.
