Architectural Photography, Rye
Including Gourmet Cuisine
10th March 2018
The Devil in Rye restaurant is our base for a special day that's a wonderful mix of gourmet food and relaxed, informative architectural photography designed to help capture Rye's finest architecture. As part of your day, you'll have a lovely brunch and appetising lunch dual dining experience with an Indian cuisine flavour to "dine" for!
Join us and learn how to more effectively use wider lens focal lengths, delve into your camera's pro-style controls and venture into varying depth-of-field to get some stunningly creative architectural images. Your day with Capture and Create is designed to help raise your photography to a higher level, where you'll learn to optimise your camera's functionality with expert assistance from both Doug and Sue, whilst enjoying the wonderful town of Rye and it's amazing variety of architecture and quaint, medieval streets.
This practical day of Photography will start with a scrummy brunch at The Devil In Rye (it's the sister restaurant to The Ambrette in Canterbury and Margate); we will then spend plenty of time out walking and using your camera, ably guided and cajoled by your experts, Doug and Sue. After a gourmet lunch, we will have time to take a peek at your photos back at the restaurant. Doug and Sue will again provide constructive feedback and guidance to help you further improve your imagery on PC after your day.
Both brunch and lunch at The Devil In Rye are included in the price of this special workshop.
Your "Architectural" Workshop Itinerary Comprises the Following:
The day starts with a rendezvous at The Devil In Rye where you will savour a very different style of Indian brunch, along with as much coffee or tea that you can manage. Later, after our stroll shooting Rye's stunning architecture, we'll have a wonderful Indian lunch that will ensure your tummy is as full as your mind.
The brunch menu is a set menu (shown below), but we will ask you to select your preferred menu a few days before the workshop date, so you'll be hearing from us.
Directions: We suggest you park in the Budgens car park which is only a few minutes walk away from the Devil In Rye; it is the second largest car park indicated in red on the map below.
