Waterfall photography practical dayWaterfalls0001

Spend a day learning how to photograph water and waterfalls in the beautiful scenery of the Ingleton waterfalls trail in North Yorkshire.

This location allows us to photograph varied moving water sources and learn the techniques needed for success. You’ll also learn about exposure settings, how they combine, and how to control the contrast and exposure for stunning waterfall images.

 Learn about:

 – The important camera settings for capturing water
 – What shutter speeds you need to freeze or blur the water
 – Using neutral density and polarising filters to reduce the ambient light
 – Framing that works well for waterfalls
 – Overcoming exposure problems
 – The right lenses and accessories
 – Using Live View to assess exposure and white balance
 – Shooting manually to overcome exposure problems

You will need:

A sturdy tripod is essential. You will also need a camera with a standard kit lens fitted, and a telephoto lens can be useful. We recommend a neutral density filter (not a graduated ND), ideally ND 8x (3 stops light reduction) to get the slow shutter speeds which produce the feathery effect. Good walking shoes/boots and waterproofs are essential too.

Fitness level:

This is our most strenuous event, so you need good mobility and fitness to take part in this course. The paths are uneven and the rocky surfaces are slippery. We do take a minibus up to the top of the falls, which cuts out a lot of the uphill walk (the cost of this is included), then trace the waterfalls route back down to the starting point, covering up to five miles during the day.

Course cost is for tuition only. Entry fees and refreshments not included in price.
