Saturday morning we were out in the sun (well, while it lasted anyway) along Southsea seafront for our 17th photo walkshop. The sold out walkshop started off at the foot of the new Solent wheel ride at Clarence Pier, the latest landmark in the city. We looked at triptych ways of documenting a scene and also using reflections on windows and puddles. We made our way down to the hovercraft and used some different focusing and composition techniques in capturing the busy Solent. As the weather took a little turn for the worse and the sky turned grey and the sea turned green we made it to Southsea Rowing Club just in time. The club had kindly agreed to let us explore their boathouse on this walkshop, with a rare glimpse at the craft as well as the different equipment, etc. With the sun back out we finished up the walkshop looking at using depth of field when photographing one of their craft ready for the water.
The next photo walkshop is at the beautiful East Head, with us looking at the sand banks and the sand dunes. This and all the new spring and early summer walkshops in Portsmouth and at Emsworth, Hamble, Lee on Solent and more spots on the south coast can be booked HERE, the walkshops are 2 hours long and only £10. We also have a couple of walkshops with Chichester Harbour Conservancy that are 3 hours long too.
