We are back again with our 'Back-to-Basics' series, aimed at building on the basics of photography and helping you develop your skills. Join us alongside Chris Herring for another brilliant workshop at the beautiful Happisburgh coastline. Chris will show you how to capture a broad range of subject matters including: wildlife and natural landscapes, composition, getting the best exposures, and much more.

Chris will show you, step-by-step, how to capture less controllable subjects and will be on hand to help out and answer any questions you have. This workshop is all about improving your confidence and developing your photography out and about in nature!

We will cover:

  • Composition and breaking the rule of thirds
  • Creative thinking – beginning  to explore macro and wide angle
  • The importance of monopods and tripods in wildlife photography
  • The histogram function
  • Getting the best out of natural lighting
  • Working with filters

 

What you will need to bring with you:

  • Your DSLR/Mirrorless camera and lens(es) (Macro would be beneficial)
  • Instruction manual-if you have one
  • Tripod – if you have one
  • A spare battery
  • Memory card with lots of space
  • Appropriate outdoor clothing
  • Your ticket

Chris Herring

Based in the Norfolk village of Martham, Chris Herring has been running photography workshops and courses throughout East Anglia since 2007, specialising in Landscape and Nature Photography and fine art printing.

Although originally trained as a wedding photographer and shooting landscape images in his spare time, Chris got the opportunity to shoot landscape photography full time back in 2007 after being offered a four month commission to shoot Norfolk images for the Turkey Producer Bernard Matthews. Since 2007 he has continued as a full time landscape photographer and has not shot a wedding since.

Today much of Chris’s time is split between running photography courses, shooting photography commissions and printing and framing his own work for local galleries and shops.
