Shooting Landscapes: A Photography Workshop

How does one capture the beauty and the awe of landscape on a little camera sensor or a bit or small rectangle of film? John Rux-Burton (www.semaphorephotography.com), the prize winning  landscape photographer, will take us on a journey illustrated by images taken over five continents, explaining some of the technique, some of the ideas and some of the joys of what he does. He will look at some ways that aspiring photographers can dramatically improve the impact of their images. You are encouraged to bring examples of pictures you are happy with (or not and wish you could improve) to share ways you too can create awesome landscapes. The MAP centre is situated in The Old Police Station, Market Hall Street, Kington, HR5 3DP. John is also leading a walk on Saturday so you'll be able to put everything you've learned into practice!
