Back in the early days when I first picked a camera up, I really was blagging it! But that was OK, the pictures were just for me to keep as memories. Had there been photography training in Wakefield, or a photography workshop in Yorkshire, I would have been there!
Now I am a full time photographer and have photographed well in excess of 350 weddings. So you could say I have moved along a bit.
DSLR cameras are quite daunting! Compared to everyones everyday camera (mobile phone) DSLR cameras have a lot of buttons and dials. My training days are fun, simple and I promise at the end you will feel far better equipped to go off and start capturing memories.
The camera training will be basic level stuff, explaining how cameras work, using all the different dials and what you can achieve with these dials! It will have nothing to do with weddings, the business side of things, just bog standard “lets talk about it, and then go do it’ type of photography training. Oh, and of course with everything I do, the photography workshops will be a lot of fun!
Shooting and Introduction to Lightroom
Attendees will ideally have a basic grasp of camera modes, if not a quick ‘to the point’ explanation will be given before we start
Our evening will start with shooting lots of photos for an hour or so. That will include people, details and landscapes. We will look at using different types of filters to create certain looks
We will then move on to Sunset- around 1900. Once complete we will head inside for the introduction to LR. Although there is a lot going on in this software, it is very simple and extremely powerful! Learn how a photo can be incredibly enhanced with just a few clicks. Attendees are welcome to bring their laptops to click away on their photos whilst I jibber away.
Throughout the evening I will be on hand to chat about what might be going wrong, and maybe how one simple tweak can make all the difference, be that whilst shooting or whilst using Lightroom
