Swanage and Corfe

the iconic old pier and the beach huts – a favourite of many photographers

We’ll meet in Swanage and walk to the iconic old pier and the beach huts – a favourite of many photographers. If conditions allow we’ll try some long exposures of the sea & pier (you’ll need to bring a tripod and a variable ND filter if you want to try this) The shot of the old pier will probably be best shot with a fairly long zoom.

We will then travel on the Swanage Railway to the village of Corfe Castle where we’ll have lunch (we have use of a classroom – bring your lunch or buy it in Swanage) The dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle stand on a natural hill guarding the principal route through the Purbeck Hills. It guards the gap between the south of Purbeck, where Purbeck marble was once quarried, and the rest of England. Nothing could pass in or out without going past the Castle.

We will explore the best angles to shoot the Castle from the village and then take some closer shots from within the castle walls

Towards the end of the workshop we’ll review our shots in the classroon
