General Admission: £45.00

Do you enjoy visiting historic churches and wish you could take better photographs?

At this workshop at St Andrew’s, Redbourne, Lincolnshire we will discuss and explore the use of composition, exposure and lighting to get the best out of your photographs. We will look at the use of wide-angle and telephoto lenses to understand the differences they can make to the final shot.

You will have plenty of opportunities to practice your skills whilst exploring St Andrew’s, which was built largely in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The church has a wonderfully tall, slender tower and the interior is an attractive mix of Decorated and Perpendicular styles. St Andrew’s has beautiful, vividly coloured stained-glass windows and some excellent eighteenth and nineteenth-century monuments and ducal hatchments.

The course is suitable for all abilities, though it is probably best suited to those with a DSLR, Mirrorless or bridge camera. You should have a basic understanding of your camera controls. Please bring along your camera, lenses, spare batteries and memory cards. If you have a tripod and/or flash, bring that too.

The workshop will be led by Peter Clegg, who spent over 20 years working as a professional photographer and who now works for the Churches Conservation Trust. Peter has an extensive knowledge of church buildings and loves to pass on his knowledge and enthusiasm to others.

The workshop will run in two halves: We start at 10am with an introduction to the day and have an hour's break at 12 noon before resuming at 1pm. The day will finish at 3pm. Tea, coffee and cake will be provided. We suggest that attendees bring a packed lunch or visit the Red Lion, just 5 minutes’ walk from the church.

Please note that the church is unheated and we will be spending time both outside and inside, so make sure you wear warm clothing. Some of the floors are uneven due to the historic nature of the building. There are toilet facilities in the church.

If you have any questions about access or if there is anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable - email Peter at [email protected].

The workshop is limited to 8 participants so that everyone can benefit from the personal attention of the leader.

 All the costs go towards our work caring for the churches in our care.
