Landscapes in Hemel & Aarde Valley (27 Dec’17 – Hermanus)

Meander up our beautiful Hemel-en Aarde Valley visiting a variety of farms and learn how to capture the beauty and depth of a landscape through tone and light.




On this workshop you will learn how to see ‘tone’ instead of ‘colour’ to understand which landscapes work as a black and white photograph and which work better as a coloured photograph. Strong emphasis will be on composition and well as how to incorporate a foreground, background and middle ground in your photograph to create depth. 

You will also learn how to capture the light through all four corners of your frame.
