Saturday morning was our first photography walkshop out at the historic Milton Locks, where the old Portsmouth Canal joined Langstone Harbour. We started off on the low tide shoreline looking for old items and textures in the sand, shingle and mud before looking at triptychs of the old wreaked boat up on the beach.
From here we made our way out on to the mud and in to the old lock gates before looking in, around and through the small boats pulled up on the shore. The tide was getting very low so we made our way out in to the harbour on the slipway trying out short depth of field and rule of thirds. The sun popped out near the end as we photographed the geese on the mud and overhead and the old ‘rope boat’ that is a bit of a local landmark.
Our next walkshop is at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on the 19th March, which still has a few limited spaces left which can be booked online HERE.
