Additional Photography Information:
Weston-super-Mare down to Burnham offers a spectacular stretch of coastline offering the perfect location for long exposure photography. With Weston-super-Mares magnificent long pier, prominent beach and rustic wrecks of old wooden boats along the shoreline you will never be short of an attention grabbing subject in which to capture.
Photography gives us the opportunity to seize that special moment in time for all to experience. The person at the end of the cameras lenses has the ability to make that moment last for a lifetime and portray a landscape or seascape in a way that can't be seen by the naked eye.
When using this technique, it's important to calculate the long exposure, which extends far beyond the scope of each of a cameras light meter. Doug Chinnery provides an insightful Light and Land workshopon the west coast of Weston-super-Mare. Dougteaches photographers how to combine 'The Big Stopper' with graduated neutral filers to balance out high contrast exposures and shows them how to over come the problems faced with focusing accurately. This very popular workshop allows photographers to work on composition and using the technique to make captivating images instead of trusting technique alone. In the final day of this 3-day workshop, photographers learn how to use AdobeLightroom, Photoshop and Nik Solver Pro2 to process their images and complete the minimalist long exposure composition. All workshops are made available to download afterwards so photographers are able to play back sessions as often as they want to recap and reflect. These techniques are useful in processing all aspects of land and seascape images, not just long exposures.
The arrival of extreme neutral density filters has given photographers the ability to slow the world down and capture the movements of time on a land or seascape, to produce some incredibly powerful images.
