In April I will be running a couple of Photography Workshops alongside Showcase Glass in Stirling teaching the basics of digital photography.
I plan to share some of the skills that I have built up over the years to help people get more out of their cameras.
Because people buy super expensive kit and don’t really know how to get the best out it.
I’m not a fan of traditional workshops (from bitter personal experience).
I studied photography at college, hated it so much that it basically put me off holding a camera again for about 5 years.
I’m not even in family photos of that time, as if I didn’t exist.
So I think it’d be much more rewarding for me and much more useful to my students to act as a Creative Mentor.
Imagine me as a bit like Mr Miyagi.
(And I’m not just saying that because I have a fence that needs painting)
I would be a guide to help you unlock some of the potential that you already have inside of you
Also to share some little tips and techniques that will help you on that journey.
But ultimately you get out of photography what you put in so don’t expect to come home with a portfolio of winning shots.
I hope to share with you someo f the skills needed to get there.
What you will need is a DSLR or a mirrorless camera.
Fully charged batteries and a memory card.
If you have a flash then it wouldn’t hurt to bring that too.
I plan on covering the basics first.
Camera controls, shutter speed, aperture and iso sensitivity.
Raw or Jpeg?
We will touch on a little bit of composition.
A little bit of digital asset management which is as dull as it sounds but very important.
Some basic post processing and then a little bit of flash photography.
There will be a buffet lunch provided.
This will run on the 21st & 22nd of April at Showcase Glass in Stirling.
Costs £60 per day or £110 for both days.
Hope to see you there.
