Landscapes are perennially popular subjects for photographers. However, capturing a really good landscape image is challenging. Everyone can photograph the landscape … but what makes a striking landscape photograph? How much is down to planning and how much is serendipity? Why and how does a superb photograph stand out from the rest. Each type of subject presents its own particular challenges … and opportunities.

This one day course covers the techniques and perception required to take landscape photographs that have impact. Throughout the course we will be concentrating on the what, why and how of landscape photography. We will look at composition, focal length and focus, use of light, colour and monochrome. Examples from throughout Britain will be shown to illustrate the ingredients that can make a potentially good photograph into a memorable image.
