After the success of the twilight walk in spring join us for another leisurely walk around Wells. Apart from the City of London, Wells is the smallest City in the country. Your ShutterBugs tutor Graham will help you navigate your way around your camera and capture some beautiful images of this fabulous City. The street lights around Vicars Close and from within the Cathedral at twilight make for some fabulous photo opportunities.
Probably the finest national example of early English architecture, Wells Cathedral was largely built between the 12th and 14th centuries. The Cathedral is famed for its magnificent West Front, featuring over 300 statues and carvings; the inverted scissor arches of the nave, and one of the oldest working mechanical clocks.
This walk will give you the chance to improve your composition & techniques under the guidance of Graham, your ShutterBugs tutor who will help provide inspiration, ideas and be on hand to de-bunk any technical camera challenges and jargon.
You will be encouraged to explore different angles & techniques to get the best shots of the buildings and city landscape
You will come away with a sense of achievement having started to make informed decisions about how you photograph the environment.
By the end you should have achieved a good set of images you’ll want to share with friends and others you might want to showcase in your growing photographic portfolio.
What you’ll learn after your walk:
After we have finished shooting we can decant to a local cafe or pub for a chat. This will give us an opportunity to share experiences, explore what we have learned and provide each other with constructive feedback on techniques to help us all improve.
This will also give you an opportunity to quiz your ShutterBugs tutor with any specific questions you may have.
Duration of this walk: approx 2 hours
You will just need to own a digital camera (DSLR, Bridge, CSC or compact). You can bring a mini tripod if you want but it’s not essential
