Time of day and time of year are critical factors in landscape photography. So proclaimed the distinguished Irish landscape photographer John Hooton last Friday when presenting his portfolio of coastal images from Dingle in the Irish Republic.
Timing may make the difference between a soft, restful image or one filled with drama. John generously described the settings he typically uses and the lens and filters he employs.
In the second section of his talk, he showed his rock and stone formations which could easily inspire a set of images for a photo panel. And he rounded off the evening with a set of wet weather images (essential one would think for Ireland) featuring the contents of old derelict houses. Here John explained that he sometimes had to do a little tidying up and object placement to get shots that really caught the eye.
Wife Noreen assisted with the presentation and promoted John’s books and courses.
