WINTER LANDSCAPE WORKSHOP
(and the art of slow photography)
Photography workshop with Tim Richmond + Cheryl Newman
February 18th + 19th 2017
The narrative of winter landscapes is one of death, re-birth, decay, starkness, preparation for renewal, sleep, dark, piercing angle of light, rain, mist, dusk... are all elements that draw one in to a winter landscape.
We will engage in slow photography, in this age of rushing around we will take time to consider the capture of each image, In this way, the subject of time informs the work's content and it methodology.
We will examine and discuss the range of possibilities that landscape photography encompasses, discussing examples of other art photographers. Looking at the issues connected with winter light. We will do field trips, and then return for further discussions and editing.
Based from rural Exmoor National Park, this Two day Workshop is aimed at advanced amateurs. Numbers are strictly limited.
Price of Workshop is £495.00 including various meals and wine.
