About the Event
A good image is all about composition, telling your story in an image or series of images. How to make the viewer 'read' what you want them to by deciding what to keep in or keep out of your frame. Strong compositions are the foundation of great photography whether you are using a high end DSLR Camera or a smart phone.
Day 1 - Composition, framing, perspective.
Explore how framing your image in different ways creates different feelings and how connected or not the viewer is to the subject matter. Tuition on basic camera settings can be covered if needed.
Day 2 - Discovering other photographers
None of us work in a creative vacuum and finding photographers whose work you enjoy can help develop your own style. Discussing how a photograph works and what emotions and story it conveys builds on understanding of composition from the previous workshop.
Day 3 - Light and Depth
All photographs, whether digital or analogue require light. Explore using environmental light and how to bounce this for portraits, close ups and what inexpensive equipment can be used. On camera and off camera flash. Explore exposure and depth of field and what can be achieved with your camera.
Day 4 - Project
Using all that has been covered, create a series of images on a set theme and present to the group.
