Join us on one of our Northumberland photography workshops and discover this rugged wild coastline famous for its ancient castles. The constant erosion of the north sea has carved out stunning seascapes where rocky outcrops meet the ocean.
An ideal place for using filters, there will be plenty of opportunity to master long-exposure photography using a range of shutter speeds. You will create images which vary from minimalist landscapes which work well in monochrome to dramatic photographs using shorter exposures to capture the drama which is ever present on the Northumbrian coast.
Your guide for the trip will be professional photographer Tony Higginson who has been leading workshops along this stretch of coastline for several years now. His knowledge of the beaches means that he understands which locations work best at different tide heights and times of day allowing you to get the best possible images.
Whilst traditional photography techniques work really well for seascapes, we will also be looking at alternative ways of ‘seeing’ the landscape. Of course, post-processing is equally as important in producing a great image as good technique and composition in the field, and on our Northumberland photography workshops you will receive image review as well as guidance in photoshop and lightroom.
All in all, this stretch of coastline is a real treat for all landscapers who love to be out in the elements capturing the power and majesty of the Britsh coast, and you will leave with treasured memories as well as photographs.
The beaches are stunning in their own right but add to them iconic old structures such as Bamburgh Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle, and Holy Island and you have a rich mixture of history and beauty. Standing by the harbour at Holy Island when the tide is high, cut off from the mainland is an experience you must not miss.
