During this workshop we will photograph some of the most spectacular landscape scenery in the British Isles always, where possible, making use fo the best light of the day around sunrise and sunset. The trip will include Glencoe, Eilean Donan Castle, The Isle of Skye and the Isles of Harris and Lewis. We will cover a variety of subjects including dramatic coastal scenes, tranquil sandy beaches, mountain landscapes, standing stones, abandoned crofts, castles and much more. Image critique sessions will be carried out as required and when time permits. Photoshop techniques will be discussed and demonstrated during any periods of poor weather or light.
