Glencoe, gateway to the Scottish Highlands and arguably Scotland’s most scenic glen. The area is home to some of Scotland’s best mountaineering and hill walking and is also a landscape photographer's paradise. With picturesque scenes at every twist and turn, from the vast 50 square mile expanse of Rannoch Moor in the east, through Glen Etive, one of the filming locations for the James Bond film Skyfall; and finally westward through the glen alongside the River Coe to the small village of Glencoe itself.
This 4-night residential workshop is centred around the skills and techniques needed for beginner and intermediate landscape photographers. Techniques we will cover, but are not limited to: shooting location planning, how to work out the weather, long exposure techniques, working with filters, exposure bracketing and blending, lens choice, composition, image editing and a recap on basic exposure settings.
Included but not limited to:
Bidean Nam Bian: The Three Sisters – Aonach Dubh, Gearr Aonach & Beinn Fhada
Buchaille Etive Mor
River Coupall Falls
A small selection of the latest Fujifilm GFX and X Series equipment, specifically suited to capture beautiful landscape photography around Glencoe, will be available to try. There will also be a small selection of 3LeggedThing tripods and Kase filters available. If there is anything in particular you are wanting to try, drop us an email at fujifilm_schoolUK@fujifilm.com
We will be staying at the beautiful Kingshouse Hotel in the heart of Glencoe for 4 nights. The hotel was originally a coaching inn for weary travellers to rest, first established around 250 years ago. In 2017 the on-site bunkhouse was rebuilt for the large community of hikers, walkers and mountain climbers and in early 2018 the construction of the new hotel wing was started, after the removal of the 1960’s extension. The brand-new revamped hotel re-opened in February 2019.
