Another Photographic Mini-Module from the Welshot Photographic Academy and this time we are visiting the majestic location of Valle Crucis Abbey, located at the bottom of the Horseshoe Pass near Llangollen.  Autumnal landscapes and architectural photography will be the nature of this event. 

The “Masterclass” will show you how to shoot those architectural  photos while balancing both for indoor and outdoor lighting – using the HDR (High Dynamic Range) will be covered for those who wish to learn this technique. 

After brunch at the Ponderosa Cafe at the top of the Horseshoe pass we will be going for a gentle stroll to take in the landscape, capture it in our camera and then make our way to the Abbey itself which affords us many opportunities to capture this historic monument to a past gone by,

From the ruins of the Abbey itself which include a Chapter House to the fishpond and the rear – spectacular views of the Abbey with the Horseshoe Pass in the background

For more information on the Valle Crucis Abbey visit the  CADW website. 

This will be a brilliant session for the beginner and a great chance to get some images for the more advanced photographer too as there will be plenty of One on One time with the Team Leader.

The Welshot Mini-Module (with Masterclasses) events are a mixture of Academy Evenings and Full Day Events – Four to five hours in length and usually outside. 

They are designed so delegates can meet-up with other photographers in a safe environment in many different locations to learn how to get the best from their camera but also have the flexibility to be creative.

A variety of photographic genres will be covered, and each event will have a photo-walkabout, were you are free to roam but still feel the benefit of the Welshot guidance, support and tuition if needed as well as being in an inspiring, fun, creative, safe and secure group environment.

Each event will have a dedicated Mini-Masterclass which covers a genre usually lasting about one to two hours. 

These events will range in price – from £28.00 to £50.00 for Welshot Members and some you will even be able to use your Academy Evening vouchers to book your place.

Non-Members are also welcome to attend, you just pay a little more.
