Llangollen & Valle Crucis in Autumn – Mini Module with Masterclass

What Will Happen

Autumn. Is there anything as nice as being in the open landscape during Autumn? We can think of only one thing better and that’s being out with your camera taking photographs during the Welshot Llangollen & Valle Crucis in Autumn – Mini Module with Masterclass photographic event. Welshot is celebrating all things Autumnal by heading for the picturesque town of Llangollen, in particular the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which is a navigable aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee in northeast Wales. The 18-arched stone and cast iron structure is for use by narrowboats (and walkers) and was completed in 1805 having taken ten years to design and build and will sure to delight any landscape or architectural photographer.

After a Morning of all things photography we will stop for lunch (bring your own or stop at one of the many cafes) before heading for Valle Crucis Abbey at the foothills of the Horseshoe Pass – Valle Crucis Abbey is a Cistercian abbey located in Llantysilio in Denbighshire, Wales and is close to the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod venue. this is where the Welshot Mini-Module Masterclass – How To Shoot For HDR will take place, giving you the techniques and skills to produce some stunning images for your portfolio

Whether you are a beginner to photography, a photographer who would like to try a new genre, learn an new technique or skill or a more advanced photographer who wants to build their image portfolio, you will be made welcome and we would love to help you get the best out of your camera.

The Welshot Team will be at hand throughout this session to assist and help you get the best from your camera, so you can leave at the end of this session with memory cards full of beautiful photographs and great memories.
