Tidal Travel Log - Photography Stroll at Boyton Marshes
Fri 14 July 2017, 17:15 – 21:15 BST
Be inspired by Suffolk's fantastic open skies, its wild and wonderful coastal landscape and its quaint little villages in the 'Golden Hour' of photography. Our Tidal Travel Log - outdoor photography workshops are aimed at beginners and intermediates, no matter what make or model your camera is. This includes mobile phones or tablets with camera, and compact cameras. You will be supported with many training and practice opportunities on our relaxed stroll along the tide line, while taking in the coastal scenery, the wildlife and the history of the location.
Our event timings include the best lighting in the afternoon. This will hopefully (depending on the weather) give you the opportunity to get some stunning photos of the landscape, the afternoon sky and the sunset before we finish with last shots in the 'Blue Hour'. Wherever possible we aim to include the moon rise as well.
The group will be guided by professional landscape photographer Jeremy Hennell James and Monika Koch, who specialises in natural and built heritage and the culture of the Suffolk coast. This unique skill combination of the two leaders will help workshop participants to open their eyes and lenses to find often overlooked but fascinating features of the changing coastline.
We will start with a short introduction in the car park over a mug of tea or coffee while explaining some basics of manual camera settings and providing a glimpse in the history of the location. (You are most welcome to bring your own picnic.) Jeremy will make sure you are comfortable with your camera settings before we head off for our relaxed stroll.
We will stay outdoors for the full four hours and explore a section of the coastline by foot, in all weather and cameras always at hand. The route may include walking on shingle, mud, uneven or wet ground. You'll need to have a reasonable level of fitness, and bring sensible outdoor clothing.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
This workshop is suitable for adults and teenagers. If your booking includes under 16 year olds, you accept that they must be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult at any time. Please select the reduced ticket for 'observer only' if you are an accompanying person and don't want to receive photography guidance.
