Capture 2 Print - North Devon
£495.00 | 12th - 13th April, 2021 | Last Places
There is obviously much more to photography than triggering the shutter. Taking a picture is just the beginning – a photograph doesn’t come alive until it is expertly processed, printed and presented. Until now, all our workshops have focused almost exclusively on the picture-taking process – light, composition, filtration and exposure. And during this workshop, we will of course continue to develop these core in-camera skills. However, this 2-day Capture 2 Print workshop is designed to guide you through the process of not only taking landscape photos, but editing, developing and printing your images. The idea to provide you with a complete package of skills, to help ensure you always make the most of your Raw files.
The workshop will be split into two defined parts. On the first day, we will focus on in-camera skills – spending the day photographing the rugged north Devon coastline. North Devon is less visited than South Devon and Cornwall, but its dramatic Atlantic facing cliffs and long sandy beaches are a haven for walkers and surfers alike. North Devon is one of only six Unesco Biosphere reserves in the UK. During the workshop, we will visit dramatic craggy beaches, sand dunes and Devonian harbours, shooting into the evening under the guidance of professional landscape photographers, Mark Bauer and Ross Hoddinott. We will then return to our accommodation – The Imperial Hotel – a luxury 4-star hotel located in the heart of Barnstaple and renowned for its excellent cuisine and service.
On day two, there will be an optional dawn shoot at nearby Instow or Westward Ho! before we tuck into a hearty Devonian breakfast back at the hotel. After breakfast, we head for a day in the classroom with Adobe certified expert Adrian Beasley. Adrian is one of the best in the business – a superb photographer who is renowned for his processing and printing skills. He is an experienced and popular tutor with a friendly and accessible approach to teaching. He will ensure you get the most from your files. Adrian will demonstrate some of the key developing and printing issues and highlight common problems with lots of hands-on support materials. After a buffet lunch, you will finish editing your favourite images* and then Adrian we guide the group through the printing process. Each participant will print and take home 3 high quality A3-sized prints, printed on a selection of Art papers.
This workshop is ideal for those who want to experience the complete photographic workflow. By the end of the day you will have confidence in your system settings, understand the calibration steps and appreciate the benefits of different papers. The workshop is full of practical advice to help you to print with confidence at home. You will also receive a comprehensive Lightroom workbook, covering all classroom technique covered and more. We hope you can join us…
*Participants must bring their own computer loaded with their editor of choice
Please note: Adrian will demonstrate techniques using Lightroom but other editors can be accommodated.
