14 june 2019 Friday - beginners workshop
The beginners day is for those new to digital photography or who have only ever used their camera as a point-and-shoot. If you want to gain more control over how your pictures are coming out, then this is the day for you. The day is based around Rye, dropping into the gallery to show examples and give you ideas.
We will cover things like shutter speeds, focusing, how the lens settings change the way your pictures look, what the ISO settings mean and how to use them, and how you can improve the quality of your pictures by shooting in RAW format.
We also cover awareness of light and shade, how to shoot flowers and foliage, composition and so on.
At the end of the day we end up back at the gallery where I process my pictures through Adobe Lightroom, which has become the standard for most photographers. If is Photoshop re-worked for photograpy only. It is much better designed and cheaper than photoshop. The idea is you will have similar shots to process when you get home. This part of the day is recorded and sent to you later as a download to rewatch on your computer. This means you can pause or wind back to check what is happening.
I will process my photos taken alongside (so similar to) yours from the day, and show you how I process the pictures to get them looking as good as possible.
I will do a quick online demo of my technique for stitching together multiple shots to get the high quality prints we sell in the gallery.
In summary, it’s a one day primer for moving beyond pointing and shooting.
The cost is £140 per day, lunch in a pub or cafe, tea and coffee is all included in the price, maximum 6 people. The day runs from 10am till 6pm.
Meeting at the gallery in Rye at 10am and finishing back at the gallery at 6pm. Lunch, tea coffee and snacks included.
