I’m a self-taught photographer and I’ve been using digital cameras since 2001.
In 2018 I decided to dedicate some time to learn more about photography and to try using that knowledge to create better images.
I’ve signed up for a photography course that should last about a year and starts with first principles.
My landscape photographs up until now have been hand held and taken while doing another activity. The only filter I’d ever used more than a few times was a polarizer and my tripod remained at home.
The photographs here were taken at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. They were a deliberate attempt to spend time taking photographs, use a tripod and use some ND filters to extend exposure times.
During the next six months, I’ll be doing a number of photography workshops – picked mostly to cover areas outside of my comfort zone and to learn from people who care about their areas.
- Landscape photography in the Peak District.
- Astrophotography in Nottinghamshire.
- Architectural photography in Nottingham.
- Street photography in London.
- Safari Park photography in the West Midlands.
I’ll post progress and images here over the year.
If anyone here has any suggestions for areas of photography I should have a go at, then please let me know.
