Experience Norwich in an entirely new light with the help of Carol Hartfree.
Before we share the details of our Norwich photo walk, let’s meet the FUJIFILM specialist who will be accompanying you on our Norwich photo walk.
Carol Hartfree has been obsessed with photography since her early 20s when she got her first SLR film camera. With a degree in photography and many years of working as a freelance photographer and trainer, Carol has gained a great deal of technical and creative knowledge.
Carol is known for her kind and gentle approach to her subject matter, with her work being described as ‘photography with a light touch’. This way of working extends to her teaching, helping photographers get the most out of their equipment and their creative vision, whatever their skill level or experience.
If you’re interested in attending our photo walk around Norwich, you will find all the information you need to join us at this exciting event below.
Date: 24th May 2024
Meeting Point: Cafe Bar Marzano
This photo walk is aimed at photography beginners and enthusiasts, though those who want to test out the range of equipment or enjoy a day out with our photography community are more than welcome!
With a lot of freedom to work at your own pace, Carol will help you navigate your way around and help you produce great images. There is less focus on in-depth tuition and genre theory, however, you do have the opportunity to talk directly to Carol who will be able to answer your specific photography queries.
This photo walk will allow you to take in some of the most historic parts of Norwich including the bustling Norwich Market, the art deco beauty of The Royal Arcade, the Norman Norwich Cathedral and its cloisters, the Tudor cobbled lane of Elm Hill and the River Wensum.
Meet at Café Bar Marzano, The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich, NR2 1TF. What3Words location: ///mimic.jumps.lush. Introductions and a briefing will take place here, where attendees can discuss their experience and expectations. You’ll also be able to borrow lenses and kit.
Visit some of the area’s most photogenic locations at a pace comfortable for all. Throughout the day, Carol will offer her expertise and guidance to attendees.
Locations may include but are not limited to: Norwich Forum, St Peter Mancroft, Norwich Guildhall, Norwich Market, The Royal Arcade, Tombland, Norwich Cathedral & Cloisters, Elm Hill, and the River Wensum.
The route of this Norwich photo walk is circular and will end with a Q&A session for attendees at the photo walk’s starting point. This is also where you will return any borrowed equipment from the day.
After an initial refresh on basic camera settings, Carol will move on to explain valuable exposure techniques — including exposure settings, composition, and how to manipulate the highlights and shadows.
These will include tips for street photography, black and white photography, composition, and how to anticipate a compelling story to freeze the moment in time.
As ever, light and exposure are crucial, so they will receive due time and attention as the day progresses. You’ll receive different photo briefs throughout the day to help you experiment with camera settings and photographic techniques.
You’re welcome to bring your own set-up, although a selection of the latest FUJIFILM cameras and lenses will be available on the day. Photographers travelling lighter are also welcome to borrow 3LeggedThing tripods and Kase filters.
