During this workshop we'll explore two neighbouring locations that offer two very different sets of subject matter. The first location, Triscombe Stone, features a unique row of gnarled beech trees lining an older drover's road. This is a place to practise woodland photography.
A short walk uphill will take us to Wills Neck, the highest point on the Quantock Hills and home to large swathes of heather. Views looking north and west toward Minehad and Porlock are superb so this is a great location to hone your skills at capturing big views of the landscape.
Once we get out of the car we will be entirely on foot for the workshop. We'll walk between two locations covering a mile and a half, taking roughly 45 minutes in total, during the day. You should be fit enough to be able to carry your camera equipment plus food and drink with you.
If the weather is due to be significantly wet I will reschedule the workshop for the next convenient date that the majority of the group can make. It will go ahead in all other circumstances so we may be out during light showers. Be sure to dress appropriately, with a waterproof jacket and warm layers.
We will meet at Nether Stowey at 2:30pm then drive to Triscombe on the Quantock Hills. The workshop will finish at 8:45pm when we arrive back at our cars.
Tuition and guidance, transport between locations on the day, notes covering topics explained during the day.
Camera, tripod, accessories (spare battery, etc), selection of lenses, filters (ND grads/polariser most useful), walking boots, mobile phone, food/drink/snacks.
