The 10-stop ND filter helps you achieve wonderfully serene and unique photos when shooting subjects such as water or foliage. If you have a 10-stop Neutral Density filter or any of the Lee Stopper (Super, Big or Little) range of ND filters and want to learn how to get the best out of them then this half-day photography workshop is for you. During the workshop I’ll cover the techniques needed to use this filter both technically and artistically, using its light-stopping power to extend shutter speed and create striking images. (The long exposures possible with extreme ND filters are particularly suited to black and white photography, and I’ll discuss this approach too.)
The workshop starts at the iconic location of St. Mary’s Island near Whitley Bay and finishes at Collywell Bay near Seaton Sluice. The workshop is timed to to coincide with high tide (approximately 2.00pm).
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to take part in this workshop or if you’d just like more information about this or any other workshop.
This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience and ability, from beginners to more advanced photographers. The small group size enables me to devote ample time to each participant individually.
Bring with you the camera equipment you already own. 10-stop ND filters invariably require the use of tripods, but don’t worry if you don’t have one: I should be able to lend you one for the workshop.
Some walking over uneven ground may be involved, so a reasonable degree of fitness will be needed, along with sturdy, waterproof shoes, walking boots or wellingtons.
