A 1-2-1 tuition day can be tailored to suit your needs and timescales. Adam will be at hand to provide you with encouragement, instruction and feedback to help improve your landscape photography. Living on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, Adam’s knowledge of the national park is exceptional. Tuition will be carried out entirely on Dartmoor, where you will be guided to windswept tors on high moorland outcrops, rocky woodland rivers and beautiful rolling countryside. If the conditions prove favourable it may be possible to pop over the border to shoot the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall.
The tuition day will include approximately 9 hours, in which you will be developing your photographic skills with Adam’s support and guidance in a variety of inspirational natural settings. During a typical day, we would hope to visit a minimum of three locations, ending the day with a sunset shoot. Adam will select the optimum locations to visit, taking into account the weather and seasonal highlights to ensure you are photographing each location at it’s very best. While on location tuition is informal and friendly; Adam will help you develop your technique, paying particular emphasis to composition, working with light and mastering filters (a set of Lee ND Filters will be available for your use throughout the day if required).
If you are travelling from further afield and wish to book overnight accommodation, we can recommend two different locations to suit your budget. The Oxenham Arms in the moorland village of South Zeal is over 800 years old, and offers a touch of luxury in a charming historical setting. For the more budget conscious, the Travelodge hotel in Whiddon Down offers excellent value in an easy to reach location, close to the main A30 road. As both of these hotels are close to our north Dartmoor base, Adam will be able to collect/drop off, so you will not need to bring your car on the 1-2-1 day.
Throughout the course of the workshop you will receive instruction on, and plenty of time to develop the following techniques:
- Switching to manual settings
- Using filters (Neutral Density Grads, straight ND's and Polarisers)
- Understanding exposure
- Mastering composition
- Working with natural light
- Finding shots with impact
