On the first of August I held my first afternoon Landscape photography workshop. I hosted this at the spectacular Kogelbay beach just past Gordonsbay.

This is a hands on workshop. I work with every person and answer their questions personally. I also have my camera set up so that I can show the people exactly what I will be looking for, what different settings does and how I would approach a scene and capture it.

With the natural landscape there is a great composition that is very easy to use.

On the day we had spectacular weather and according to the wetaher forcasts from www.yr.ne and Windguru we where going to be treated with a warm day and LOTS of high clouds. What the forecasts did not show us was the very thick layer of haze that was all over the Western Cape on that day. It was so thick that it almost looked like a fog hanging just above the ground. To be honest I was quite worried at one stage as I have had similar conditions before and the haze simply killed all golden light from the setting sun.

BUT, not on this day. We where treated with a spectacular sunset with soft pinks and purples in the sky.

After I got everyone comfortable with the various settings and compositions We started shooting.

I must say, I am quite blown away with some of the images from the group, there is some real crackers!

Here is a small selection of some of my personal images captured during the workshop.
