Event description
Take a walk on the wild side of Gower with Photographer Phil Holden to improve your camera skills in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

About this Event

Capture the light from the various vantage points that Cwm Ivy has to offer, and look out for visiting migrant birds as well as Lapwings, Herons and Waders. This is a good time for spring flora and butterflies such as Orange Tips. Take advantage of Phil's extensive photographic knowledge and develop your skills through shared practical experience. Photography subjects will include:

  • Wildlife- flora and fauna
  • Landscapes
  • Settings, exposure and post production
  • Lenses and composition
  • Effects of aperture and shutter speed on the image

and of course throughout the workshop you will have the opportunity to raise your own queries.

Meeting at the Whitford Beach car park at 9am, the walk of about 4/5km passes through open grassland alongside a dune slack before following the shoreline towards Whitford Beach lighthouse, crossing the dunes and returning along the edge of Cwm Ivy marsh and woodland for 1pm.
