The aim of the course is to develop creative vision within the context of an artistic approach to landscape photography. Autumn is a sublime time within the year to embrace the changing and contrasting colours of the woodland valleys of Dartmoor – ideal for producing images with an emotional or visceral depth.
Participants will be encouraged to explore the wide vistas as well as more intimate elements with the inner landscape – looking for harmonious and at times dynamic links between the elements to add narrative, invitation and longevity of interest to their photographs.
Cost: £100 per person – including a pub lunch/ transport during the course session
Duration: 7.30am til 6.30pm (sunrise 8am, sunset 6pm)
Group size: 2 people – to allow maximum mentoring to the participants
Experience level: ‘Beginners to Improvers’ – ideally with some idea of the use of the ‘creative functions’ of their camera (aperture priority, time priority, manual settings), though this can be introduced on the day.
