Dartmoor in Spring One-day Photography Course

Dartmoor in Spring one-day photography course

19 May 2018. Dartmeet, Dartmoor, Devon.

Course location: Woodlands along the banks of the River Dart, near Dartmeet, plus open moor around Bench Tor.

Times: 1pm to 8pm

Price: £90 per person.

Our popular day of spring photography on beautiful Dartmoor, at a time when the trees will be leafing out, sending a swathe of verdant green across the hills and valleys.

This will be a day of landscape photography, initially in the ancient woodlands of the Dart Valley Nature Reserve, along the banks of the River Dart, south of Dartmeet. Here we’ll practise the photography of a river flowing among trees, the beauty of ancient trees arching across the water, and the jumble of gnarled trees in the forest.

In the afternoon we’ll head up onto the open moors, visiting one of the area’s most photogenic tors, complete with stunning views of the Dart Valley. Here we’ll be able to practise the photography of Dartmoor’s notoriously hard-to-photograph granite rocks, some attractively wind-sculpted trees, and the wonderful Dart Valley views. We may dabble in some wild flower photography, if we come across suitable subjects.

The course will aim to teach the following skills:

Participants should have at least an understanding of what shutter speed and lens aperture mean, plus a knowledge of how to operate their own camera in order to get at least basic images. Beyond this, the main requirements are enthusiasm, an open mind and a readiness to learn!

Note: Since we’ll be working outdoors, what we are able to do during the day is very weather-dependent. Weather conditions may make it necessary to vary the itinerary.
