The Isle of Portland - Long Exposure Special
£150.00 | 22nd March, 2019 | Fully BookedJoin the Waiting List
The Isle of Portland is a must-visit location for fans of long-exposure photography. It boasts some of Dorset’s most dramatic coastal scenery, which really lend itself to the ethereal look generated by long exposures.
We will meet at the Heights Hotel early in the morning for a briefing on long exposure technique using Lee Filters’ Little, Big and Super Stoppers, and then spend the rest of the day in the field, putting theory into practice. There are a number of superb locations all within easy reach – the classic red and white lighthouse at Portland Bill is justifiably famous and Pulpit Rock has featured in countless photographs. However, there are also some hidden gems on the island, such as the gently curving Church Ope Cove, littered with sea-worn pebbles which the waves wash over. There are also far-reaching views from Portland Heights across Chesil Beach - a 17-mile shingle spit wich stretches all the way to West Bay near Bridport. In short, we will be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding suitable subject matter.
Don’t worry if you don’t presently have any filters, as we have Lee Filter systems and filters for participants to use, including a number of Big Stoppers, Little Stoppers and Super Stoppers, as well as sets of graduated neutral density filters. This is the perfect opportunity to develop your long exposure skills, or try the techniques for the first time.
Mark and Jeremy both have an intimate knowledge of this area, so as well as receiving expert tuition from your two tutors, you can be sure that you will be in the right locations at the best time of day to make the most of them. By running the workshop during the week, locations should be quieter and easier to photograph.
A packed or pub lunch is included in the cost and you will also be given a signed copy of ‘From Dawn to Dusk - Mastering the Light in Landscape Photography’. Group size is restricted to 10 only, to ensure a high level of individual attention. We hope you can join us…
