Landscape Photography

Every day, all year round.

Duration: 8 hours

In this workshop we take a step back from the more technical side of photography and explore the more artistic and creative aspects of Landscape photography. Using absolutely any camera and working within your own zone of comfort and ability, we place the emphasis on seeing and interpreting the elements of the landscape through composition and natural light. Every location we visit around the Dingle Peninsula becomes a mini workshop as we consider and discuss all the components and planning that go towards making a great landscape photograph..

“In the evening this workshop finishes up beside the rugged coastline, west of Dingle for some seascape photography and hopefully spectacular skies to complete the day.”

  • Adding creativity and your imagination to the elements of the landscape
  • Altering the perspective of the landscape by position, angle of view and choice of lens
  • Composition and balance, how to stimulate the viewer and lead their eye through your photograph
  • Composition in colour and black and white, direction and colour of light

Throughout the day, equipment and technique take the back seat as we begin with the foundations of composition, deciding what exactly we’re placing in the frame and how we can position elements for maximum impact, balance and visual flow. We study angle and direction of light and the ability to emphasise different sections of the landscape while creating atmosphere and mood. When considering any location and our composition, we’ll examine the static components and the potential of features that are fluid and changing, such as water, wind and the skies. As well as reconnaissance and planning, we’ll examine filters, equipment and apps for landscape photography.

  • Water, waves, pools, puddles, waterfalls, rivers and lakes, reflections and motion blur
  • Making the most of the sky to emphasise and complement your composition

We can collect you and your group from your accommodation anywhere on the Dingle Peninsula and begin the workshop or we can meet at an agreed time and place in Dingle. We’ll take a break in Dingle before the evening session and we’ll be back in Dingle (or at your accommodation) around 45 minutes after sunset and dusk.
This workshop is suitable for absolutely any camera or device, although having the ability of at least some manual control and the capability to do longer exposures than a second is an enormous advantage to really get the most out of this landscape photography workshop. We carry a range of filters and some tripods that everyone is welcome to experiment with. We have a few smartphone and tablet, tripod attachments and Bluetooth releases that can be used for the duration of the workshop, please contact us in advance of your workshop if you’d like to use them.
