Autumn colours and woodland photography

I really love Autumn as it is without doubt one of the most photogenic times of the year, but with a short window for peak colours. Set on the Burrswood Estate in rural Kent, this workshop is timed to coincide with leaves in colour, both in the extensive gardens, in the woodland and on the woodland floor. The gardens are home to a range of exotic trees and shrubs. Beech, Chestnut and Hazel are prominent throughout the woodland, providing a range of colour to work with. There are ponds and lakes on the estate that give further photographic opportunities

This is a one day, hands-on, practical workshop, suitable for photographers of all levels, who want to learn to exploit the photo opportunities that the autumn brings.

This short video gives an idea of the extent of the grounds and the possibilities for autumn colours (Thanks to Richard Smith for the video)

Format

The workshop starts at 10:00 with an informal session in the house discussing techniques and the different photographic opportunities available on the estate. This will be followed by an extended photographic session around the estate. I will be on hand throughout the day to help and coach you on how to make the best images and to deal with any technical questions you may have.

After the lunch break, we will download our images from the morning session and will spend some time working with Lightroom to get the best from your images.

The workshop will end at 16:00.

At the end of the day each attendee will get to select one of the images that they have made to be made into an A3 size professional print, which will be sent on to you after the workshop.

You need a digital camera, that offers alternatives to automatic mode. It doesn't matter if it is a DSLR or mirrorless design or a compact. Contact me if in doubt.It would be useful for you to have a tripod - if you don't own one we can probably lend you one.

Make sure you have enough fully charged batteries and SD cards with you.

If you have a laptop with Adobe Lightroom running on it, do bring it along. If not don't worry as I will bring mine along on the day.

Pease wear/bring suitable clothing. We will be working outside for some of the time so please bring suitable footwear and waterproofs if the weather looks like being wet.
