This exciting one day workshop is intended for those that already have a good grasp of the fundamentals of photography (or have completed one of our beginner workshops) and are now looking for more creative ways of expressing themselves through their art.
After an initial welcome talk here at the Joe Cornish Gallery, Mark will transport all participants to a beautiful location in North Yorkshire to try out the techniques discussed using their own camera equipment. Mark will of course be on hand throughout the day to give advice and tuition as well as offer tips and tricks where appropriate.
Over the course of the day Mark will discuss and demonstrate the techniques used to become more creative with your camera including:
Mark Banks is a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society, has been assisting Joe with his Residential Workshops for a few years now in addition to leading a number of our photographic workshops in his own right.
“Mark Banks is quite simply one of the best teachers of photography I have ever met. His secret is an apparently endless supply of patience, and an acute analytical approach to developing systematic problem-solving tactics in photography, which he makes effortless and fun to learn, whether in the field or in the editing suite. Mark’s artistry, empathy, kindness and charm mean he is always a joy to work with, or to be taught by.”
This workshop is for a maximum of 4 people.
Participants must have a basic understanding of aperture and shutter settings along with using their camera in manual mode. Along with a camera and tripod, all participants must bring at least a basic set of graduated filters (including a 1, 2 & 3 stop set of hard graduated filters), filter holder and lens ring for each of the lenses they bring. We highly recommend the Lee range of filters, but this is not essential nor a requirement for this workshop.
Who should attend and what should I bring
This workshop is intended for photographers who wish to further their creative landscape photography skills or have completed a beginner's workshop. Participants will be expected to bring all necessary equipment for such a workshop including tripod, charged batteries and any other camera equipment they wish to bring, and of course water-proof clothing and suitable footwear.
