Winter through a lens workshop at Washburn Heritage Centre

Winter through a lens workshop at Washburn Heritage Centre

Last week I had the pleasure of leading a workshop at Washburn Heritage Centre. Titled ‘Winter through a lens’ the workshop explored how to get better photos from your camera during the winter months.

I had a fantastic day, the group were brilliant and we even got a bit of sunshine! The workshop ran from the superb centre that adjoins the equally stunning Fewston church, which dates back to the 14th Century.

As well as a winter slide show and some demonstrations, we managed to get out to the reservoir for some practical exercises in both the morning and afternoon. During which I managed to take a few snaps…
