A Photography Course around Bolton Abbey

Looking to get the best of my snaps whilst out in the hills I went on a photography course recently around Bolton Abbey in an attempt to try to get my photos to resemble what I see in the flesh whilst I'm out there in the open.

Thanks, yeah it was very fruitful. Enlightening as to where to get the best shot from and how to manipulate the settings. A great neck of the woods too.

I still find taking control of the camera (in other words, selecting something other than 'Auto') a strangely unnerving sensation at times. Almost like dabbling in a black art.

Those are great pictures. For the longer exposures, were you using a tripod or steadying the camera with some available piece of natural support?

Thanks for your comments. You're not wrong, it's pretty straight forward when you've got the knack of it and it does produce better results I reckon. The great thing about digital though is that we can take as many photos as we choose and delete those that don't come out right.

I used a tripod for the longer exposure shots as some of them were a second or so, I am not the steadiest of individuals so the shots would have come out pretty disastrously if I'd tried holding it.
