Want to know how to capture those dramatic waterfalls in the stunningly beautiful Yorkshire Dales?
Join us for a day at Swaledale Waterfalls on this photography workshop. Let us help you get the most from your camera, whatever type of photographic equipment you have – all levels welcome!
What we’ll see
Swaledale is a long way north and the last “dale” in Yorkshire, famous for it’s steep, narrow valley and 1000+ barns.
The main focus of the day will be the waterfalls and landscape around Keld, at the western end of the valley. The waterfalls in this area include Wainwath and Kisdon, and several more within a mile of each other.
From here we’ll drive back down the valley, pausing for some of the classic “barns in the dales” photos en route.
Later in the day, we’ll go over the iconic Buttertubs Pass, showing you the Buttertubs themselves, and also some epic views over to Ingleborough.
We’ll finish at Semerwater, Yorkshire’s largest lake and a great place to create reflections of colourful evening skies as the sun sets.
Note that in summer, the sunset can be around 10PM – if you need to leave earlier, that’s fine, but it’s worth noting.
What you’ll learn…
On this photography workshop, you will learn how to best use your camera equipment in these varied conditions whilst also learning some of the technical aspects of landscape photography.
In addition to photographing dramatic waterfalls and spectacular landscapes, at sunset, you will also learn how to use light and composition as your tools for creating stunning images at Semewater
We can help you by either demonstrating how we work each scene, or if you have questions on technique, camera settings or composition, please bring them and ask away all day.
Typical skills we’ll help with are:-
Exposure – getting the brightness right and using aperture/shutterspeed/ISO
Histograms – your best friend when you know how they work, especially with waterfalls
Composition – making photos interesting and work
Use of filters – how to use ND grads and Polarisers
Ultra-long exposures – how to use 6/10/15 stop ND filters to shoot very long photos in bright light
