Creative abstracts and details – East Sussex

Wednesday, 30th September 2020, 11am-7pm FULL

Thursday, 25th February 2021, 10am-6pm FULL

Coastal photography doesn’t have to be about sweeping seascapes and epic skies. Once your vision becomes attuned to the smaller details and the potential for more intimate or experimental compositions, the possibilities are endless. This workshop is all about learning to capture creative photographs and developing your own style by concentrating on shape, detail and impressions, from abstract patterns in sand and rocks to long-lens captures of sea and shore. Rachael is also keen to encourage experimentation, including the use of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and multiple exposures. The locations, in East Sussex, have been carefully chosen by her to offer a wide variety of subjects that can be captured in all conditions. During our lunch break, there will be an opportunity to review the morning's images and we will look at some processing techniques. Of course, we won’t ignore dramatic skies, if they materialise on the day, and wide-angled vistas are not forbidden, but they aren’t the focus of this workshop. As always, a small group (maximum 4) means that individual attention is guaranteed, no matter what your level of experience.

You will need to get to the start of the tour, on the East Sussex coast (exact location to be confirmed a few days before the tour), under your own steam but then Rachael will drive the group around all day and return you to the start point at the end.

This is not a particularly strenuous workshop but one of the locations requires a 15 minute walk (mostly on level ground).  There are short stretches of shingle beach to be negotiated at all locations and, depending on the recent weather, some of these may be steeply banked.

The cost of this workshop is £255 including lunch and refreshments. (Alcoholic drinks excluded.) Group of 4 only.
