A £100.00 deposit per person will secure your place with the balance to be paid 14 days before your chosen date.
We will visit locations including the stunning waterfalls near Ystradfellte on the Afon Mellte, Afon Pyrddin and Afon Hepste plus Henrhyd Falls, the highest waterfall in South Wales, the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, the Usk Valley, Llangorse Lake, Ponsticill and Talybont Reservoirs in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Please note that accommodation is not included as I have found many people like to make their own arrangements at a favourite hotel or B+B or even have their own camper or motorhome. If you wish I can recommend places to stay.
This will be an intensive 3 day workshop course with dawn and dusk shoots plus other locations during each day and a couple of night shoots. The workshop can be run on an individual 1 to 1 basis or as a small group of up to 3 participants if you have friends or relatives who would like to join you. The small size of the group allows me to provide personalised tuition and advice based on your experience and requirements and also to maximise the potential of each location without overcrowding.
In addition to visiting stunning locations we will cover the following topics to improve your images and the enjoyment of your photography – composition, how to read light, the relationship between shutter speed, aperture and ISO, hyper focal distance, depth of field, shooting RAW, the histogram and many more.
Final locations will be selected according to the prevailing weather conditions each day.
There will be good opportunities for night sky astro photography, star trails etc. in the Brecon Beacons National Park International Dark Sky Reserve (weather permitting!)
A good level of fitness is required as there is a fair bit of walking (up to an hour) to most of the waterfalls and some of the paths can be steep and the rocks slippery as you can see from the image above. These stepped paths are typical of those that lead down more than 200 metres (650 feet) from the main track to Sgwd yr Eira and Sgwd y Pannwr waterfalls.
Ideally you will have a digital SLR or compact system/mirrorless camera with a wide angle and a standard to medium telephoto zoom (or prime) lenses, plus a tripod. Filters including a polariser would be useful and solid neutral density (ND) filters are essential if you wish to capture long exposures. If you have a FujiFilm X series compact system camera I can show you the many less obvious features that make this a great landscape photography tool.
All travel (to and from the photo locations) is included.
What isn’t included;
Travel to and from Wales, personal travel insurance, protective clothing, lunch, evening meals and drinks, camera equipment inc. tripods.
This can also be run as a one day workshop if desired concentrating on the waterfalls near Ystradfellte, please ask for details.
