Itinerary

Sunrise

The day will commence in time for sunrise according to time of year.

Locations will vary depending on the weather & light.

We will more likely head back after shooting for breakfast, and a chat about the day ahead.

(*subject to change)
 

Day

The period between the sunrise and sunset shoots will give us opportunity to explore the area and take more photos throughout the day.  It will also give me chance to see where you are at and if you need help from me.

 

Sunset

We round off the day with a sunset shoot, timings vary according to time of year.

We will aim to be at our chosen location an hour or so before sunset to allow us to work through the compositional process before waiting for the light and taking that perfect image.

Your shooting day will end after sunset, and then we will head back to look at processing and image critique, and dinner.

(*subject to change)



Evening

If you wish to have your shots critiqued in the evening, please bring your images either on a USB stick, or your iPad/laptop (there is no need to bring your own laptop unless you want to process images as you go). The photo can be straight from your camera or one that you have processed. We limit the critique sessions to two or three shots per day, per Photographer, to ensure that the discussions are useful.

I am more than happy to give some help and advice on processing, subject to time. (bring your own laptop)
