NNPS Coastal Project

North Norfolk Photography Society is running a one year project for people interested in developing their photography knowledge and skills.

The overarching theme “Coast” has been selected to ensure accessibility for members living in North Norfolk and to enable photographers involved to collect a variety of pictures, taking advantage of local places through changing seasons, light and conditions.

The project will start from July 2018 with an initial set of 5 practical outdoor workshops based on the following coastal themes:

  • People – using and enjoying the coast and it’s facilities
  • Seascapes and Landscapes – within seaside towns and landscapes next to the Coastal Path or within sight of the sea
  • Action & Wildlife – living along the coastal strip, running dogs, birds in flight etc.
  • Close-up – coastal related
  • Abstract – coastal related

Each workshop will cover the camera techniques and settings relevant to the theme, and will encourage participants to get to know their cameras and try out new techniques. A senior member of NNPS will run each session, ensuring expert tuition, but participants will also be encouraged to learn from each other. Feedback sessions will also be held to review images taken, and to provide further learning opportunities.
