During our time together
The days are long in August, and sunrise is extremely early at 6am. Because of this, we will focus our photography efforts on Sunset which is late at 9pm. So we will head out after breakfast at 9am in the morning and do some critique sessions during the middle of the day, so we can concentrate our photography to the golden hours of sunrise and sunset and twilight until 10pm.
8:00 - 9:00am
Self service breakfast.
10:00am - 12:00pm
12:00pm - 3:00pm
Critique session & digital workflow. We will select one or two shots from each member to discuss and I will show you how the image may be improved and the steps involved from RAW file to final print.
5:00 - 6:00pm
6:00 - 10:00pm
On location for sunset and twilight.
We will be leaving on Saturday morning at 11:05am from Brodick to Ardrossan, arriving in Ardrossan at 12:00. There is a direct rail link connection to Glasgow Central. Please ensure that any connecting flights give you sufficient time to arrive and check in. I would give yourself an additional two to three hours to be safe.
