What we aim to cover We try to tailor all our sessions to suit our guests, so we do not always cover all the topics depending on the individual needs. Typical topics we can cover in this session are: Slow shutter speed techniques, manual exposure, use of ‘ND’ filters, use of tripods and compositional ideas.

Landscapes containing waterfalls are a huge favourite for many aspiring outdoor photographers.  However, there are challenges in creatively capturing movement in the water and finding ideal spots for arresting images.  Our ‘Waterfall Photography Workshop’ at Ingleton, offers the perfect opportunity to not only discover some picturesque settings but also have the advice and support of a highly experienced professional photography guide.

During the day we will walk about 1.5 miles up the trail to the spectacular falls at Thornton Force.  After which we will slowly walk back down the valley trail looking at Pecca Falls, Pecca Glen, Manor Bridge and Swilla Glen.  These beautiful locations offer a wide variety of photography opportunities and the Wild Arena guide will assist everyone to get the images they are looking for.

The day is fully inclusive of admission to the trail and the guide will take time explaining capturing motion blur and movement in the water using tripods and neutral density filters.  As with all of our landscape photography workshops, we will ensure everyone gets individual attention to help develop their personal photography.  We hope to achieve this by having small group sizes and plenty of time for constructive discussions.  Other photography topics covered on these sessions might include: Compositional ideas (the rule of thirds, lead in lines, shapes in the frame, the focus of the image, perspective and simplicity), the use of tripods, practical application of filters for landscapes, using shutters speeds creatively for the inclusion of movement and creative use of apertures to control depth of field.

Ingleton Waterfalls

Ingleton Waterfalls, located on the south west of the Yorkshire Dales opened to the public in April 1885.  The trail itself follows a well-defined path as close to the Rivers Twiss and Doe as possible.  There are 6 waterfalls along the complete walk, meandering through woodlands and meadows.

10.00: Arrival at meeting point followed by an introduction and briefing from your guide.

10.30: Photography session 1.  After slowly walking to the top of the glen we will pause at Thornton Force and take time understanding the basic techniques for controlling apparent movement in the water.

12.30: Lunch break (please bring a packed lunch).

13.30: Photography session 2.  The group will work slowly back down the trail stopping at various points to capture the waterfalls and wider landscape opportunities.

16.00: Summary and close.

PLEASE NOTE: Our itineraries are listed as a guide and we may need to alter them depending on unforeseen circumstances, weather conditions or the availability of the subjects.  Start and finish times are fixed to enable transport planning.

I had a great day at the falls. David the instructor was extremely knowledgeable, ensuring that I had set up for great shots. I now understand much better the technique needed. It was good weather and the group dynamics worked well. I'm so pleased with my photos. Thanks very much
