Peter Watson Says...
'Every photograph we look at is the result of a trinity consisting of light, land and photographer. As the photographer, my role is to bring together the light and land in a way which transcends the boundaries of visual awareness. This leap across the threshold, the crossing from the seen to the unseen, is, I believe, the essence of photography. It is the essence of my photography. It is the nature of my art'.
As a photographer I am indeed fortunate to have Wales on my doorstep. From hilltop castles to sweeping golden beaches, there is always something to photograph, always something to lure me into this beautiful country. Of all the Welsh counties, Pembrokeshire, perhaps more than any other, epitomises the beauty and diversity of this majestic land. This corner of Wales has its own special character and during the course of this weekend we will discover just what it is that is so alluring about its coastline, valleys and mountains. One day will be spent searching among hidden coves and inlets for unique and memorable photographs, from close-up images to sweeping, spectacular views. This will be followed by a day exploring remote hills and valleys where we will attempt to capture the magnificence of the rugged, Pembrokeshire landscape.
This weekend has been designed to give photographers, of all levels of expertise, the opportunity and ability to gain their own perspective on using light and land together. The workshop will cover the following topics:
Creating the Image
Choosing the best viewpoint
The use of foreground
What to include/extract in a photograph
Using the sky and landscape together
Calculating perfect exposure
Choosing the right aperture and shutter speed
Pin sharp focusing using maximum depth of field
