WORKSHOP AUGUST 17 - Tommy Hatwell


Next Date - TBC

The Dewerstone Valley holds many treasures, a beautiful woodland rising up from the meandering summertime River Plym, offering the photographer ample and fantastic options for photography.

Meeting for in the car park for a 10 am start we will walk over the bridge and into the woodland to spend time in the outdoor classroom learning both creative and technical approaches to outdoor photography, exploring the difference between looking and seeing and getting to know your camera a little deeper.

Putting the technical aspects together and into practice,  we explore the area with your camera set to manual and begin to really create the images you visualize. The exposure triangle gets a solid work out along with your mind and thumb as you get to grips with controlling all aspects of creating images in this wonderful outdoor arena.
