Event description

Description

Through Strong Island Media we have delivered photography workshops over the last 5 years to over a thousand people of all ages and abilities across the south coast. Working with organisations such as Chichester Harbour Conservancy, University of Portsmouth, Making Space, Hampshire Cultural Trust plus many schools and youth groups we’ve developed Walkshops, where rather than sitting down in a classroom you actively learn different photography skills and techniques out and about with your camera, with support from a professional photographer.

A Strong Island photo walkshop involve a leisurely 2 hour walk with fun & creative photo activities allowing you to find out much more about your camera and how to get the best out from it in the future. We’ll be looking at composition, perspectives, textures, leading lines, creating narrative and also how to take control of aperture and shutter speed plus much more. A walkshop is for all ages & abilities, and is a great way to enjoy time with fellow photographers.

All you have to do is bring along your camera to take part. It can be anything from a cameraphone to a digital compact through to an SLR and if you want to shoot 35mm film, cool! If you don’t have your own camera we have a selection of digital compacts you are free to borrow for the workshop. We can even offer 35mm SLRs for you to use if you like. Even if you just bring along your cameraphone you’ll learn loads that’ll make a big difference to your mobile photography.

Walkshops are 2 hours long and cost £10 either in advance (booked online) or in person at the start of the workshop. Group size is limited to 15 per workshop. All ages welcome (if under 16, please be accompanied by an adult).

Please arrive 15 minutes early.

This walkshop focuses on photographing during sunset and dusk at the historic South Parade Pier. We will meet outside South Parade Pier before making our way down on to the beach as the sun begins to set. We'll be out on the low tide beach to the western side of the pier catching the warm light on the pier and over the Solent. As the sun settles more we'll make our way to the easterly side of the pier and using tripods look to take long exposure photos as the sun sets behind the pier. With the sun set and dusk settling in we'll look at more long exposure photos either on the beach or at Canoe Lake.

If the weather is cloudy during the evening and no sunset is visible we'll explore around the pier with our cameras looking at different perspectives before taking long exposure photos on the beach and at canoe lake. Please note a tripod will be required later in the evening and if you have one a shutter remote.

Expect to catch the pier and Southsea beach with a beautifully coloured sky (fingers crossed) during the sunset and then long exposure photos at dusk.

Meet at:

At the promenade entrace to South Parade Pier. Parking is available on the road further up the seafront (free after 6pm). There are a number of bus stops right by the pier.

Notes:

This walk is sadly not very wheelchair friendly as we will be on the shingle beach for almost all the walkshop.
