This workshop is set in and around the beautiful Bluebell Railway at Sheffield Park. The location provides a wonderful backdrop for you to develop your photographic skills and provides an opportunity to capture images from a bygone age, whilst having a tutor on hand to give advice and perhaps a different approach to capturing candid shots of staff in period costume, abstract images in the engine sheds, or that classic shot of a steam engine rolling into the station.

You certainly don’t need to be a train enthusiast to appreciate the photographic opportunities. 

What The Training Will Cover

  • We start by having a short tutorial on ensuring your camera is set up correctly and outlining the settings to use. 
  • We then provide some suggested images to capture and how. 
  • Abstract and candid portrait photography - Learning to look outside the box
  • Use of High ISO’s to capture low light photography in the locomotive shed
  • Using fill in flash and manual exposure to capture portraits of the station staff.
  • Getting off of Auto and Program modes and using Aperture Priority and Manual modes
  • How about HDR images - well we will provide input on how to do so and the settings to use.

Whilst you are capturing images we will be on hand to offer advice, guidance and help.

We will discuss some approaches to editing the images later in the comfort of your home
