Workshops &wine - Sunset photography (DSLR)

Do something different in a beautiful setting

About this experience

Why not combine the beauty of nature with the taste of wine? Our workshops let you take full advantage of the spectacular setting of The Watch House, our new tasting barn, whilst perfecting your skills and enjoying our premium quality wine.

Light, camera settings and composition will be covered on this creative photography workshop during the golden hour at Chilworth Manor Vineyard. All photography levels welcome, the workshop will be run by professional photographer Lillian Spibey, and it will cover how to use your camera to take creative photographs at sunset. Lillian will discuss how to use the camera’s settings to take great landscapes and close ups and how to use the golden light to create stunning silhouettes and to illuminate the grapes, vines and surrounding landscapes.

Participants will learn how to compose their photographs in camera, learning about the various rules of composition and using them in their images. Participants will finish with a great collection of sunset images.
