A one-day workshop providing you with a unique experience to engage with nature through photography. This will include group discussions, and an image editing and printing session resulting in each participant taking away an exhibition quality print of their work.
Whether you are a beginner or keen amateur this workshop will provide a framework of support for those interested in connecting with nature through photography. We will look at capturing shapes, contrast, tone, texture, and composition and get you to consider what inspires you and why.
Whether it’s the detail of a beautiful old growth oak tree, close up shots of the forest floor, or the spectacular grassland expanse with the back drop of the London skyline - there are countless opportunities to capture creative images on The Heath.
All too often digital images remain on computer hard drives or never go beyond a quick glance on a camera screen. This workshop will get you active with your images and encourage you to explore ideas and themes with an end product.
The day will be split into two sessions:
The morning will be spent at a specially chosen site in the 700+ acres of London’s Hampstead Heath, with ample time and support provided for photography. The second half of the day will be spent at the Education Centre next to the lido for editing, group discussion and printing. Participants will take home a beautiful, exhibition quality print from the day.
