Meeting Place and Time: Phone Photography Ideas for Beginners
Gather at NOON in Malham, perfect for those keen to learn smartphone camera settings for landscapes.
Parking options include a pay-and-display car park as you enter Malham or roadside parking (which is free). Either way, we’ll rendezvous at the car park entrance. Handy to note, there are loos right there, so last-minute pit stops are sorted.
The Walk: Ideal for Phone Photography for Business Owners
We recommend boots for this leisurely, flat walk, although decent trainers should do the trick.
We’re tackling only the RED ROUTE—it’s more of a gentle meander than a lung-busting hike, so you’ll still have energy left for phone photography hacks.
From the Malham car park, we’ll follow the “red” path to Gordale Scar, making it the ideal setting to practice your phone photography ideas for beginners.
Noteworthy stops include:
- Janet’s Foss Waterfall—great for practicing smartphone camera settings for landscapes.
- A caravan serving coffee and snacks, ’cause who doesn’t want a brew in the Dales?
- Gordale Scar—a landscape so epic, it practically begs you to test out those phone photography hacks.
(Note: If you’re up for round two in the future, consider the BLUE route. It’s a stunner, but you’ll be huffing and puffing a bit more.)
Alright, let’s throw in those keywords like they’re seasoning on a Sunday roast.
The Photography: Your Guide to Phone Photography for Business Owners
We’ll be clicking away all day—part of the fun is stumbling upon the unexpected, be it flowers, landscapes, or even the odd cowpat. Ideal for those wanting phone photography ideas for beginners.
1 – Photographing People: Phone Photography Hacks for Portraits
Businesses often need “people photos” for social media, so we’ll kick off with some tips. You’ll pair up—no romantic music, promise—and play photographer and model for each other. These techniques will equip you with phone photography ideas for beginners and experts alike.
Here’s our no-nonsense recipe:
- Find where the light’s coming from—unless you’re a vampire, sunlight’s good.
- Background check—any bulls or awkwardly-placed lamp-posts?
- Portrait or Landscape—it’s not just a question for gardeners.
- Rule of Thirds—photography’s best-kept secret.
- Brightness and focus: the unsung heroes of a good photo.
- CLICK—take the shot or better yet, loads of ’em.
2 – Photographing Flora: Smartphone Camera Settings for Flower Shots
We’ll likely encounter some plant life. Perfect for testing those smartphone camera settings for landscapes, or even better, for creating MEME-worthy pics.
3 – Capturing Landscapes: Smartphone Camera Settings for Stunning Sceneries
Phones are perfect for landscape shots. Learn to see the shot like a director sees a film: foreground, midground, and background. So you’re not just taking a photo, you’re telling a story. Clever, right?
4 – Waterfalls: The Pinnacle of Smartphone Camera Settings for Landscapes
With your newfound skills, make waterfalls like Janet’s Foss and Gordale Scar look like something out of a fantasy film. Got a tripod and camera? We’ll show you how to make the water look like something from a dream. And video? We’ve got you covered.
The Walk Back
We’ll backtrack, but trust me, it won’t be repetitive. The changing sun means new opportunities for phone photography hacks.
The Pub: Because You’ve Earned It
The Lister Arms offers good grub, cask ales, and a big garden. A bit of social lubrication never hurt anyone, right?
No strict end time here, linger at the Lister Arms if you fancy.
What’s Not on the House
Things that’ll cost you extra:
- Parking and travel—because we’re photographers, not a taxi service.
- Coffee and nibbles at the caravan—BYO wallet.
- Food and drink at the pub—merriment has its price.
Right then, Ade, how’s that for jazzing up your workshop page? Got your keywords in there like a boss!
