Capturing Beauty in a Landscape


Presented by Margaret Soraya

Subject: Landscape Technique Intermediate
Day: Friday 12th Jan 2018
Time: 16.00 to 18.00 - Masterclass
Main Speaker Margaret Soraya in room : St James' Room - Mezzanine Floor Blue Feet

During this Masterclass Margaret will talk about her unusual lifestyle, travelling solo in a converted van to some of the most remote islands of Scotland. Be prepared to hear entertaining tales about how she went to the United States to learn time-lapse photography in the deserts of Arizona and then deployed those skills back on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, in order to capture the stars in night sky above the Neolithic Stone circle of Callanish. She will also talk about why she is prepared to stay out late at night in low temperatures and to rise early to photograph the magical qualities of dawn light.

Margaret Soraya maintains that the secret to capturing beauty in landscape lies in identifying your own particular preferred habitat, then it is just a case of immersing yourself in those surroundings and taking every available opportunity to frame shots and make an image. Along the way you will become familiar with changing light and weather conditions. Before you know it you may become a specialist in a particular region, whose work is sought after.

The underlying aim of Margaret’s talk is not to encourage others to follow directly in her footsteps. Instead she will endeavour to kindle the creative sparks in her audience members, so that they too can identify what inspires them and then go out and incorporate these things into their own work and create a bespoke and fulfilling lifestyle that is theirs and theirs alone.
