The aim of this workshop. which is aimed at the beginner/intermediate photographer, is to introduce you to the techniques used to capture images of moving water.

It will cover: the use of manual settings on your camera (aperture priority mode and focusing)

  • understanding the histogram and how to use exposure compensation
  • use of long/fast exposures to portray the movement of water
  • how to control exposure using Neutral Density (ND), ND graduated filters, polarisers
  • aspects of composition in landscape photography.


The workshop will be held at Sandsend beach near Whitby, North Yorkshire starting at 9:30 am and stopping for lunch at 1 pm.  Following lunch there will be an option to change location to Saltwick Bay which is about 15 minutes’ drive from Sandsend.  This will give us an opportunity to visit the site of the wreck of the Admiral Van Tromp which is only accessible at low tide.

The meeting point will be the large public car park at the bottom of Lythe Bank at the West end of the beach.

An information pack will be sent to all those participating in this workshop giving information about equipment needed, clothing, location & Health & Safety.

The workshop will be led by Malcolm Blenkey ARPS who is very accomplished with these photographic techniques.  Malcolm has checked out tidal conditions to ensure they will be perfect for this type of photography.

To allow for instruction the workshop is limited to 10 participants.
