I’ll be running 4 days of photography workshops on the beautiful island of Lismore, from 9-13th May 2013. The workshops are part of the ‘Sing, Write and Make Merry’ event, organised by Mairi Campbell.
In our increasingly visual world, there are many reasons why you might want to improve your photography skills. Maybe you’re planning a holiday, or family event, and want to make sure you can take photos so you can go back and enjoy the memories into the future. Or perhaps you’d like some eye-catching images to liven up your social media pages.
“Thanks for a great weekend – I was so impressed by how much I learned, so fast and so enjoyably. The results speak for themselves! For a real kick-start to better photos, it couldn’t be bettered. Highly recommended, great fun and and great value.” DB – May 2013
The photography workshops will include several sessions on composition. Other sessions can be tailored to particular areas that participants are interested in covering, and could include topics such as photographing people, editing photos, beginning to use flash, or learning about using manual camera settings. Whatever we cover, there will be plenty of opportunities to get our cameras out and try putting it all into practice.
It would be useful if you are able to bring a laptop, to upload photos from your camera.
“I learnt a lot and now know not only how to move away from automatic onto the once feared Manual (no longer feared) but I know about aperture and shutter speed and even when to prioritise them. It was the technical stuff I wanted and it was the technical stuff I got in spades and in a very understandable format when, as you know, I thought myself unteachable” PD, May 2013
“A great introduction to composition, clearly explained and broken down.” – 2012 workshop participant
Sign up to the Photography Scotland mailing list if you would like to be kept informed of dates for future photography workshops.
I’m also available to teach on a one to one basis, or to run workshops with groups elsewhere in Scotland. Please contact me for more information.
And if you’re keen to get started, I’ve written a few pages with some hints to start you thinking. Here’s a link to the first one: 6 tips for taking memorable photos.
