Landscape photography

Course introduction

People try and fail with landscape photography, because landscape photography is not an easy subject. To take great landscape pictures you have to travel to interesting places, be lucky with the weather and last but not least you have to know how to make interesting landscape photographs. This course addresses the first and the last points.

We will be walking the Lake District, one of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK. And we will be discussing photography techniques that will help you to understand aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings to take better pictures. If you have attended our beginners photography course, you will already have solid background and understanding of photography rules. If not, then don’t worry. Everything will be explained from the very basics.

The course is for beginners, although we occasionally have more advanced photographers in the group, who take this course as an opportunity to join group of likeminded individuals. If you are a beginner photographer, then you will benefit the most. We will start by exploring various camera settings, talk about filters, shooting water, landscape, skyscape and mountains using various lenses with or without tripod.

The workshop is for limited number of participants to ensure we have plenty of time for learning and one to one discussions. We usually depart from Lancaster in the morning and return back to Lancaster in the late afternoon. On Saturdays there are morning trains from Manchester and London arriving to Lancaster between 8am and 9am. We wait for photographers escaping busy cities by train at the Lancaster railway station and return after the course back to the same place. Transport Lancaster-Lake District-Lancaster is provided and included in the price.

It was one of the greatest photographing courses I would like to recommend for those who want to improve basic skills in a more practical way. Even though you might have been taking pictures for many years, there are still some good tips to learn when capturing the sceneric pictures. It was the first time I learned how to use ISO, Aperture and Speed priority mode, which in fact helped me a lot to improve the quality of my photos. I really found this course interesting since reading from the book of how to use those modes is uncomparable to taking on a trip with real practice!

I got a lot from today's beginners workshop. I didn't want to be brow beaten with too much detail nor given a simplistic overview. Petr pitched the level of the course perfectly and I recommend the course. Thanks for an excellent day.

I really enjoyed the beginners workshop today. Thanks to Petr and his son. I now have the confidence to use my camera on manual mode and not be afraid. Looking forward to putting my new found confidence to the test on holiday next week. I am also thinking of doing the Lake District course very soon.

Brilliant day with petr and his son. Was a very friendly group, tuition was on a personal level and easy to understand. Petr helped us all with any problems, and adapted teaching us to individual needs and spec of camera. Very worth while day. Can’t wait to book on the lakes trip. ��

I've had my camera for around 5 years but I never really understood how to use all of its features correctly. The beginners course helped me understand how to use my camera in a more manual way and what are the next steps of becoming a better photographer. Thank you!

My first step in getting to know my camera better and taking great photos. Although I’ve been using my camera over the year, I’ve learnt more about this at this workshop and it was so helpful. It’s easy to understand and you’d get help in the areas you struggle to understand! Definitely will go again to either the Lake District or Studio Course for the next one!!

I worked with Photographeria when he came up to Penrith to shoot with me, he had some great ideas. We did the 12 months fairy tale and we got some brilliant results. Highly recommended

Had a great day out on a photography course in the Lake District walking around the fells of Hawsewater delivered by Petr Vopenka . Finally taken my stabilisers off and shot a few photos in manual modes with expert guidance.

Had a great day out in the Lake District with Photographeria. Learnt some great tips on how to get the most out of my camera, and had a good walk/hike/scramble up a hillside to go with it! Looking forward to another course soon. Thank you.
