Woodlands & Waterfalls Photography Walk Workshop
A wonderful day of photography tuition whilst you walk a route of approximately 4 miles in the amazing surrounds of Longshaw. Within that 4 mile route you will have the opportunity to learn new skills whilst observing everything from wide open landscapes through to the intimacy of the world of macro photography. There will be chances to photograph wildlife, from deer and hares, to sheep and cattle, through to the abundance of birdlife found in the area.
During all of this time, Guy and Naomi will guide you in camera control, composition and techniques to ensure that you make the most of your camera and what you are capturing.
