Workshops

Woodland photography workshops

Love trees and plants? Want to improve your nature photography skills? Then join Sheffield photographer Fran Halsall for a workshop on location in some of the finest woodlands in South Yorkshire and northeast Derbyshire.

The workshops will cover: getting the most out of your camera equipment; matching the lighting conditions to the subject; and how to produce eye-catching compositions. All of which will be supported by the expert botanical and seasonal knowledge of your host.

All types of camera are welcome although part of the workshops will be devoted to using SLRs. If you have them, please bring tripods and filters with you. A spare tripod will be available to try out if you wish to do so. Please use the contact form to get in touch and discuss your requirements.
