Road Trip to Cornwall

Out with the Camera

Short break all booked at the last minute, and we find ourselves heading off down the A3 and following the instruction as provided by our SAT NAV, 5hrs later we arrive at our holiday destination Sea Acres Cornwall, ok not the easiest of locations to get to when following your SAT NAT but a nice little park, friendly with all that you need to enjoy a short break away.

The plan for our week away, to capture the following photos, Tin Mine, Small Finishing Harbour, St. Michaels Mount etc

 

 

Workshop Trip, Marwell Zoo

Out with the Camera

So the day had arrived to head off towards Marwell Zoo, as posted on our JustGreatShots Photography Workshops Group on Facebook.

With our camera gear, all packed we heading along the A272 towards Winchester, then following the local signs to Marwell Zoo to meet up with group members for a fun day out taking photos.

The idea of this free workshop was based on members just meeting up, helping each other whilst enjoying the environment and having a fun day

Tipner Shipwreck Walk

Out with the Camera

What else could I say apart from YES, when we got invited along on a photography walk to this amazing location, this shipwreck walk had been arranged by my friend Andy Hornby, who also runs a photography workshop group on Facebook?

like a lot of other photographers who live in the Hampshire, we drive past this shipwreck and iconic old crane on our daily commute to work along the M275 Portsmouth.

The photography walk began with a group of 11 photographers all meeting up in a car park at Port Solent, before heading off towards this amazing location, strong winds and heavy rain had been forecast, so it was very hit and miss if this walk would take place, but with our cameras at the ready, we started shooting images whilst watching the sun going down over this old shipwreck, ok yes at one point the heavens did open but that didn’t put us off taking photos.

Images from this Shipwreck Walk, have been made available to purchase online

 

Flash Photography \ Model Shoot

Out with the Camera

As Photographers we all know that with every shot we take we learn something new, we also know that with every shot we take, what we thought we had learnt goes out the window when you introduce flash.

Here at JustGreatShots Photography, we are always happy to share what we have learnt, and as you know we offer Workshops but from time to time it’s great to brush up our own skills by taking Workshops offered by offer Great Photographers.

On this occasion, the workshop was based on brushing up our skills on Flash \ Model Photography and how to pose someone to capture that Just Great Shot.

 

This workshop was run by a Photographer called Andy Hornby, and our Model for the day was Chealsie, the workshop was all based on exposing our camera settings for ambient light, and then adjusting the flash output to light-up our model.

 

Sunset Old Winchester Hill

Out with the Camera

After what had seemed a very long week in work, it was finally time to head off out with our cameras once again, this time our trip would take us down the A3 heading towards Old Winchester Hill

This location overlooks farmland and hillsides for as far as the eyes can see, and that this time of year can offer great views of the sun going down, however on this occasion as you can we where unlucky with clouds rolling in.

But as Photographers, this is all part of the fun of trying to capture that Just Great Shot.

 

After The Rain

Out with the Camera

Okay so it’s an Easter Weekend which can only mean one thing, a day spent dodging the rain whilst trying to enjoy a Bank Holiday Monday.

Here at JustGreatShots Photography, we had arranged a group day out at Bosham Harbour, Where members of our Facebook Group JustGreatShots Photography Workshops could all try their hands at Long Exposure \ Seascape Photography at high tide.

 

We may not have had the weather, but we still had a great afternoon out trying to capture those Just Great Shots
