Photography Workshops

Landscape Photography Workshops | Phil Crowder | The Forth Inn

I’ve put a few links at the beginning just in case you don’t know me, it will give you an understanding about me and about the photography I love to do and more so if it is what you are looking for… here we go:

Seriously, have a look, if you like what you see come back and read on, we should meet.

All the images should enlarge if you click on them

Everyone is a photographer…

It’s true.

With more cameras in the world than ever before and most of those in mobile phones, many of us don’t go anywhere without one.

More than ever our lives are recorded. We’re knocking out, and sharing photographs at a rate that would make you wonder if at some point the whole world will one day be photographed!

We are, certainly, the most photographed, and the most photographing, generation ever.

So my question is if that’s the case why would you not want to be really good at it?

I said recently on one of my Facebook posts…

This photography thing is easy, just turn up, point the camera, press the button, the camera does the rest.

If only!

I saw this image before I set the camera up and said wow, I’ve got to get this.

Come on lad, it’s easy.

I could have just got the trees on the right, but it didn’t have balance, it didn’t have any real foreground interest either but it would have been nice.

So I made a point of including the silhouetted trees & rocks on the left, I think they add a little mystery, why are they so dark when there is so much light in the scene? It adds depth to the image.

Now, come on, get it sharp. Front to back.

Press the button.
Have a look at the screen.
Check the histogram.

This is that post…

This area ‘The Trossachs’ is stunning all year round, if I had a choice, Autumn through to Spring would be the best time to photograph the area, with the sun rising and setting in just the right position to light the landscape beautifully.

Atmospheric conditions can be interesting too at this time of year, and hopefully, you might see a mist-shrouded Loch (Ard) just like above on the dawn shoot.

Fixed start and end times for the courses are impossible to advise in advance as this depends so much on the time of year you choose to come.

If you choose to stay, you will be staying here at my pub – The Forth Inn, with the photography starting before breakfast and continuing until dusk. If time allows there will be a post-processing tutorial and, hopefully, we will have the opportunity to review your images before you leave.
