KINTYRE COASTAL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

For landscape photography to be successful it is not enough to “look” at one’s surroundings; one must “see” to properly capture the essence of what is important and equally what should be left out of the photograph. These are just a few of my favourite images from the Kintyre workshop and have been carefully crafted in post-production to bring out the mood of the moment.
