I am running two photo workshops in November, a weekend in Glencoe on general photo tuition and one in the Lake District in England – the latter workshop is specifically about tilt and shift lenses. At the time of writing this, the Glencoe one is over.
I joined the Glencoe group on Saturday morning on the 8th of November. The weather forecast for the following day was promising but again, I have heard this many times before. Indeed, the forecast was correct, we had clear blue sky, heavy frost and a little bonus, mist. We headed off for the day’s first challenge, a beautiful sunrise – Rannoch Moor and Loch Ba was our destination. Upon our arrival we were awestruck with the beauty of the location under sunrise colours and mist hovering over the loch. We walked a little towards the designated spot and as I started to explain a few things before the photo shoot, we noticed a young red deer stag in the distance. It was stood there and was keeping an eye on us – he stayed there for more than 10 minutes. This gave everyone the chance to set up their gear and capture this magical moment – the young stag was the icing on the cake on this spectacular morning shoot.
On to this month’s issue though. I’d like to bring to your attention the changes in the magazine’s design. We took onboard the advice you sent us a little while back and we implemented the best parts in this new design. The main change is the new grid and the larger font – we hope you find reading the magazine on tablets much easier now. You will also notice some more changes here and there.
