The Northumberland coast has been my playground whilst developing my particular style of impressionist photography using intentional camera movement (ICM). Come with me as you learn my techniques in the locations that have been used to create some of my most successful images. Locations such as Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Howick, Lindisfarne and Warkworth.
This is photography tuition beyond the basics, this is tuition to help you understand what goes into my impressionist, painterly style of abstract landscape photography and set you up to begin to develop your own variations of this style. In this style you are not restricted by the weather or concern yourself with hyper-focal distances, lens aborations, sensor megapixel counts or unwieldy £1000 tripods!
On location, I take you through the theory of what I call my “Oil Paint” style and my “Watercolour” style, go over settings and movements for both to maximise the potential for good results and then give as much or as little hands on help as you require, all as we are surrounded by the best coastal scenery Northumberland has to offer.
Afterwards I take you through each step in my post processing techniques using Lightroom, Photoshop and other tools from the NIK Collection by DxO – mainly Analog Efex Pro 2. Here you will see how much work and the various intricacies that go into making each of my pieces. With as much of the session focused on a particular element as you require.
1-2-1 tuition is available as either a full day or half day, depending on availability and time of year.
Rates for small groups (2-3 persons) are available on request.
Just drop me a line with your details.
