Hidden Dorset

4th to 5th May 2022 (Sold Out)

This workshop has been timed to coincide with the flowering of bluebells and wild garlic (ramsons) in Dorset. We will photograph a variety of less well-known locations in the beautiful Dorset countryside and along the Jurassic Coast. If conditions permit I can also show you how I shoot high contrast sunrise/sunset images through the use of exposure blending. I will also cover hyperfocal focussing and focus stacking techniques. We will be visiting mainly locations that are off the beaten track, so some walking will be required.

One night’s accommodation is provided at a hotel in Dorchester for the night of 4th  May. There will be approximately 12 hours spent in the field.

This workshop is limited to a maximum of 3 participants to ensure that everyone receives sufficient help from me and can shoot without other photographers being in the way! It is also important to work in small groups in order to cause as little damage as possible to the delicate wildflower habitats that we will be visiting. Everyone will travel in my 4X4 vehicle from our meeting and finishing point in Dorchester. 

The workshop will begin at 3.30pm on 4th, when we’ll head out to our first location. We’ll carry on shooting until just after sunset (9.30pm). We will then return to the hotel for a short night’s sleep before heading out again in time for sunrise (around 4.30am). The workshop will end at about 10.30 am on 5th. This itinerary allows us to make best use of the calm conditions and good light that often occur around dawn and dusk, avoiding the harsh light in the middle of the day. 

If the whole group has interest and if conditions allow we may also be able to attempt one or two astro-landscape shots during the workshop, where I will be able to show you the techniques I use for wide-field astro-landscape photography, including the use of a Sky Tracker.
