Capturing the Light Photography Workshop

About Capturing the Light Photography Workshop

Take control of your camera with award winning photojournalist Paul Glendell.

Spend the day among the bluebells of the Woodland Trusts beautiful Glen Finglas learning how to take full control of your camera and be more creative in your picture taking. This workshop will show you how to use the manual controls and by the end of the day you will be fully conversant with the aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings on your camera. We will look at composition, such as the rule of thirds and using ‘lines’ through your photos to add more impact. You will learn how and why they work. You will learn how to produce a narrow depth of field so that the bluebells are in focus and the background is out of focus. With a maximum of six participants I will be able to spend time with each person individually and help you with any issues you have during the practical sessions

Lunch is provided as part of the cost.

Location: Glen Finglas Estate Office, Lendrick Steading, Brig o'Turk, Callander FK17 8HR

How the Workshop will Run

The first half of the morning we will be in the classroom learning about the manual controls. There will be practical sessions in the classroom as part of this. After coffee the subject will be composition and how to use those controls you have learned to get the best photo.

Following a lunch break we will spend most of the afternoon outside in the nearby woods among the bluebells putting in to practice the new techniques and I will work with each individual in turn as you take photos. Then its back inside for tea/coffee to look at the photos and find out where we have all got it right and where improvements can still be made.

What you will need

A camera that will permit full manual control is required to get the most from this course. Such as a DSLR or Mirrorless camera. As long as your camera has some way of permitting control of aperture, shutter speed and ISO then it will be fine. A tripod would also be useful and macro lens if you have one but it is not essential.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Capturing the Light Photography Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
