A one-day practical workshop on the art of slow-shutter speed photography. Neutral Density filters and tripods are a must, however, we will also experiment with notions of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM).
Meet at 10:30 outside The RNLI Lyme Regis Lifeboat Station, The Cobb, Lyme Regis DT7 3JJ
What to bring:
Camera and lens(es) that allow complete control of the exposure in manual mode. Tripod, Cable release, Neutral Density filters.
It's advisable to have a basic understanding of the principles of photography (i.e a familiarity with the relationship between aperture, shutter speed and ISO).
This will be a "whatever-the-weather" workshop so bring waterproofs. Good shoes advisable as there will be a modest amount of coastal walking.
