This 1 day workshop event is for keen steam photographers or enthusiasts looking to cover this famous engine whilst it makes a visit to the West Somerset Railway. You will also have the opportunity to photograph another famous engine on the day plus the railways normal timetabled services, and pick up and gain some expert tips and techniques with the benefit of Don’s expert knowledge of the line from a photographic point of view. The pleasant late summer conditions can produce some very memorable steam images.
Running through the beautiful Quantock Hills and alongside the Bristol channel coast to Minehead, the West Somerset Railway offers many varied photographic locations which we will use for this workshop to learn about and practice the art of steam photography.
The course will include transport around the event and guidance on some often less well known locations along the line where the light will be right for the shot planned. Tuition will also be provided on camera technique, composition and exposure control etc. The emphasis will be on shots that include the landscape around the railway as well as the steam trains themselves.
The day will start at approx 09.00hrs at Bishops Lydeard station through until approx 18.00 hrs. A packed lunch is recommended and taken whilst out on location.
