Llanberis Mountain Film Festival

Posted on   by 

I am delighted to be involved with the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival again this year. Last year was really successful, with loads of great speakers, events and workshops. I will be running some mountain and outdoor phtogoraphy workshops again this year, but they will be free this time round. Photography is such a great way to enhance any outdoor experience and I am keen to get more people involved this year. I’ve no idea what the weather will be like and where infact we will go, but I can guarantee that it will be a fun part of what is shaping up to be a great weekend!! Get involved!! Details are below.

LLAMFF Mountain Photography Workshop.

Andy Teasdale.

4th and 5th March 2017.

No charge.     10.00am until 4.00pm. Meeting point – Electric Mountain Centre, Llanberis.

The mountains provide us with a wealth of wonderful photographic opportunities. From wide atmospheric vistas to close up detail, every mountain environment has plenty to offer the enthusiastic photographer.

This one day workshop looks at two aspects of photography that are essential to successful image making. The first is the camera itself. How we use our camera is often dictated by our knowledge of its settings. How much do we want the camera to do for us? How does the camera know what I want to photograph? What effect am I after? So many questions where the answers lie outside of the cameras “auto” mode.

The second aspect of the day will be out in a suitable photographic location. We need to learn to see, watch, design, construct and ultimately capture an image that we are pleased with. Having learnt how to drive our cameras we can now use them with much more creative control. We will learn how to create images that we want to capture and not leave everything up to our camera, knowing that the end result will be good enough, instead of hoping!

To get the most out of today I recommend you bring the following with you. Some of the items are a little specialised, they are nice to have, but please don’t worry if you don’t have them.

Notebook and pencil.

Camera, fully charged spare battery, memory cards, filters, instructional manual. If you don’t have a hard copy, download it to your phone from the manufacturers website.

Tripod and remote release.

Waterproof and warm clothing. Walking boots.

Rucsac or suitable bag to carry everything in.

Food and drink.

Sense of humour, patience!!
