Images in the Dordogne gallery comprise of photos taken in the Correze, Lot and the Dordogne departments. They are a mixture of landscape and villages. The architecture is very varied and set against a backdrop of cliffs, orchards and the Dordogne valley. The river Dordogne is only 10 minutes from our base. 6 plus beaux villages are all within 20 minutes and the famous village of Rocamadour is half an hour away.
During the photography workshops that I run in the spring, we will explore the region and photograph various locations at sunrise and sunset, as well as during the day. It’s a great place to learn new skills in landscape photography. We’ll use filters such as a polarising filter, ND filters and graduated filters. You’ll learn techniques like obtaining maximum depth of field for landscape through shooting at F16 or F22 or by photo stacking and processing in Photoshop. Wide angle lenses are essential for landscape whilst telephoto lenses are useful for architectural features.
Misty mornings are common in spring and we’ll shoot valleys full of mist at sunrise from various vantage points. Backlit misty morning shots can be very beautiful and feature in many of my images.
