Capturing The Essence of Woodlands - A Masterclass

Each masterclass is a combination of teaching camera craft and visualization in the field and image assessments and post processing in a classroom setting.

If you are pas­sion­ate about land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy, one of its ele­ments that you will expe­ri­ence most of the time are trees and wood­land. With­out doubt one of the most dif­fi­cult envi­ron­ments in which to work is wood­land and this is the rea­son why we have tai­lor made this Mas­ter Class. For years aspect2i have been vis­it­ing wood­land envi­ron­ments with our work­shops and seen the chal­lenges they present to pho­tog­ra­phers, and this is the work­shop that will over­come them. It seems a shame that one of the most cel­e­brat­ed envi­ron­ments and one that many of us love to be in, is a place that we avoid being with our cam­eras, and indeed, mak­ing pho­tographs of!

Pho­tographs of wood­land can trans­port the view­er in anoth­er place of peace and tran­quil­li­ty but mak­ing com­po­si­tions and tack­ling what is often regard­ed as chaot­ic is a skill in itself. The aim of these three days is to teach you the spe­cif­ic tech­niques of mak­ing beau­ti­ful por­traits of the wood­land envi­ron­ments so you will be able to explore fur­ther the many wood­land and for­est envi­ron­ments you may vis­it dur­ing your time out with your camera.

There are many ques­tions that we will explore dur­ing this mas­ter­class such as which lens­es to use, how to cope with the deep shad­ows and bright high­lights asso­ci­at­ed with wood­land, but most impor­tant­ly, how to dis­till the envi­ron­ment into beau­ti­ful, sim­ple com­po­si­tions that cap­ture the essence of the place with­out look­ing clut­tered and con­fus­ing in the fin­ished image. Cre­at­ing sim­plic­i­ty in a chaot­ic envi­ron­ment is the key and this is one of the skills using cer­tain lens­es and new ways of see­ing that we will be teach­ing you over the three days together.

"Because this is called a masterclass, do not be fooled into thinking you have to be an expert at woodland photography. We called it a masterclass because woodland will be the one genre of photography we want you to master during our time together and we will cover everything about it!"

Last­ly, pho­tograph­ing wood­land is an inspir­ing expe­ri­ence for us all but the real reward to a pho­tog­ra­ph­er is the fin­ished print. As with all our mas­ter­class­es we will be hold­ing in-depth image edit­ing and print­ing ses­sion so you can take home your own mas­ter­piece from your wood­land masterclass.

This is a mas­ter­class and for this rea­son the groups will be lim­it­ed to four pho­tog­ra­phers only so plen­ty of one to one time can be spent with everybody.

The price includes extensive one to one coaching and tuition, a combination of teaching camera craft and visualization in the field and image assessments and post processing in a classroom setting, two nights bed and breakfast accommodation in a high quality hotel (no single occupancy supplement) and transportation during the workshop.
