ESCAPE WITH SEASCAPES

by Tom Ormerod

My camera has to be able to stand up to the elements, take the occasional wave splash and be resistant to sand and grime.

At the end of August, I had the pleasure of running my first workshop for Olympus on the wonderful Jurassic Coast in my home county of Dorset.

And all that’s before you think about your photography kit. A camera and a lens is barely the start of the story: batteries, chargers, backup storage and more should be on your packing checklist.

If there’s one thing photographers know, it’s light. How much of it there is, where it’s coming from, how to shape and modify it, and how to add to it. Understanding how to harness your OLYMPUS’ low-light capabilities can open a whole new world of photography. Turn your lens heavenwards and join us for the beginners’ guide to star trail photography.

NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY: A BEGINNERS’ GUIDE

If there’s one expression guaranteed to strike fear into the most experienced photographer’s heart, it’s ‘night photography’. After all, if photography is the study and exposure of light, how can you find decent pictures when light is completely absent?
