Workshop Information – Connemara in Focus
Our West of Ireland photography workshop takes place amongst some of Ireland’s finest natural beauty. Our focus on this workshop will be on the natural beauty of Connemara. Owen has made countless trips to the West so learning new skills will be combined with photographing hand picked beautiful locations. If you want to photograph dramatic mountains, lakes and seascapes then this is the workshop for you. It’s a masterclass so a basic level of technical competence is assumed and our focus will be on light and composition.
We will be located in a bed and breakfast in the beautiful region of Connemara. Our proximity to our shoots will allow us to become immersed in nature and the group dynamic. The main photographic focus will be on landscape photography and abstract depictions of the natural environment. A fully manual camera (digital SLR) and tripod are essential. We want to teach you how to make art not take snaps.
We do not set out a specific location itinerary, as Owen will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide however, we will be visiting the lakes, forests and waterfalls within Connemara.
Our days will entail sunrise and sunset shoots. We will be having a break for a few hours after breakfast if you need a snooze. The day will then be divided between shooting, critiquing and post processing in Photoshop and Lightroom. We will begin with a sunset shoot Monday and finish up on Thursday after our post production class.
