Introduction to Mountain Photography
This Introduction to Mountain Photography course is designed for those who are new to landscape photography or for “snappers” who want to leave the camera’s automatic modes behind, take greater control of their picture taking and unleash their creativity.
This practical course, which takes place in the mountain environment, will consider:
- The camera’s controls (aperture, speed, metering, ISO, white balance)
- Composition – foreground, mid and far distance, framing the shot, rule of thirds, focal point, perspective, vanishing point, and use of colour
- Equipment – filters (polarising, ND graduated), tripods and lenses
- Getting the image you want, improving creativity and the importance of planning
The Introduction to Mountain Photography course runs throughout the year. The course will last approximately 7-8 hours and provide the understanding needed to boost your photography, develop your picture making skills and create eye-catching images. All you need to bring is your personal kit, camera (filters and tripod if you have them), food and a flask of hot drink.
