May 2015 Newsletter

April was the sunniest month on record and May is now doing what April usually does and is throwing rain and strong winds at us! There's lots to see and photograph though, in what is often one of the most stunning seasons of the year colour-wise. We are doing our first motorsports course this month up at the beautiful Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire, and our new Stage 3 digital course too.

April 2015 Newsletter

Hope you all managed to get successful Eclipse pics after last month's newsletter, I think the place to be was probably Derbyshire, where they had cloud AND sun, which created some lovely effects. The Line + Light team were shooting under a blue sky this side of the East Midlands, so good results, but less atmospheric than pics taken further west which came in from you.

March 2015 Newsletter

An Eclipse!! The last time we had one was in the days of analogue; I was shooting BT's new HQ in Runcorn that day and recall how odd the light was, viewing it through a set of welder's goggles as the contractors were still on site, working on the security gates. We all stood around watching and listening as the birds fell silent and the sky went a weird tobacco colour that was not quite sunset, nor proper night.

February 2015 Newsletter

2015 is shaping up to bring some exciting changes for Line+Light. We're in the process of revamping the website, as if any of you look at it currently using an i-phone or tablet, you'll notice that it's tricky to navigate compared to when viewing on a conventional computer screen with a mouse. This is because it was designed before mobile devices were introduced, where as today, many of us own them.

January 2015 Newsletter

Well 2015 already seems to be galloping along, we've seen a little snow, a lot of sun (for January) and some pretty frosts. All of these things are visually compelling for us photographers so I bet you've been clicking away with gusto.

December 2014 Newsletter

HO HO HO, Santa is packing his sleigh as we write, is he bringing you camera gear? Or perhaps a Line+Light voucher? We have just been reading about Canon's launch of a 50MB sensor DSLR body in 2015, so that pixel race between manufacturers is far from over. In fact, pixels are the theme of this month's newsletter, with a look at some clever software and a feature on Lightroom training.

November 2014 Newsletter

It's gone cold and crispy again, which means clear night skies this week and on that theme we have news of a really exciting new course for 2015 - Astrophotography! So if you fancy having a go at shooting the stars and planets this winter scroll down for more details. We've also got a little article about great apps for photographers.

:: NO, NO DORIS!!!! ::

Well, today was the long awaited Portraiture Course which was due to run at Wollaton Hall and Deer Park for the first time.

We had one group booked for a the morning session and another team of photographers due for the 1.45 slot. Sadly, I got a call late morning to say that the park had had to close owing to the extremely high winds and threat of structural damage and trees falling.

At this point the first group were up in the Prospect Room learning how to control flash for daylight exclusion. As you can see from these pics, the difference in ambient light and controlled speedlight output is significant. Our model was fabulous and we are looking forward to seeing the pics from the five who were with us.

We are just so so sorry that Storm Doris decided to pay the UK a visit today, boo hoo and curtailed things so prematurely 🙁

This afternoon we're working to try and set up another date and will keep you posted as there will be another split morning and afternoon session, meaning there will be space for more people if you'd like to join us. We had a waiting list for today's course and will be in touch with all concerned as soon as we have news for you.

Doris didn't stop us.... well not quite! This morning's portraiture session at Wollaton Hall ran to time, but sadly, the park has now had to close and we are hoping to re-arranage this event later in the spring.

What our photographers say

I’ve lost count of how many Line and Light Course I’ve been on over the last three years – most of them I would say – which tells you something about their enduring appeal!

The friendly, informal atmosphere and the chance to meet and talk to other like minded folks in an unhurried environment mean I always come home with some great images and some new friends.
