Coastal Dawn; Beginners Phototgraphy 07/03/2015

by on Apr.01, 2015, under Bamburgh Castle

Coastal Dawn was Heather’s second beginners photography workshop with NEWT, and we were hoping for a morning a bit warmer than the previous workshop.

We did get something slightly warmer, although no less windy.  As I arrived at Bamburgh the wind was buffeting the car, which was shaking once I’d parked.  Heather arrived, but no sign of our other participants (who’d woken up, listened to the howling wind, and thought better of it!).  Down on the beach we were sheletered in the lee of the dunes and worked through compositional techniques, exposure compensation and the use of graduated filters.  Another photographer made his way down to the shoreline, before very gingerly heading back across the slippery seaweed-covered rocks in the teeth of the gale.  Another excellent morning with the elements throwing the hard stuff at us, and Heathers’ parting comment made me smile “What workshops do you in the summer when the weather’s nice?” 🙂
