This full-day digital photography course straddles the border of Kent and Sussex. We meet at Dungeness before photographing a beautiful church in the Romney marshes, and finish up in Rye with its cobbled streets and ancient buildings. Again, in keeping with all my location workshops each place offers a very different photographic challenge. Dungeness is bleak and very atmospheric, great for developing an understanding of available light and the creative use of focal length. Romney Marshes is a landscape of big skies and open spaces. It’s ideal for working on your composition skills. What can you say about Rye? It’s a marvellous place for a photography shoot. Full of architectural detail to keep the photographer happy.
This digital photography workshop is suitable for all levels of photographer from beginners to more experienced photographers. It’s also relevant regardless of whether you are using a film or a digital camera. I teach a maximum of five participants on each location course, which means that I can tailor the learning experience to each individual student.
My photography courses include tuition on subjects such as camera controls and menus, creative use of shutter and aperture, white balance, creative use of focal length, photographic filters, exposure modes, exposure histogram, composition, use of fill flash, focus modes plus use of light and colour.
In addition to the subjects already listed my workshops are designed to be confidence building and fun. I think we all learn and understand more of what we are told in a relaxed, friendly environment. If you have any questions during or after the course has finished I’m more than happy to answer them all.
Once the workshop is over the photography students receive a full set of notes covering all the subjects discussed during the day. Although this course features much landscape photography, all the skills and techniques taught are readily transferrable to other photographic subjects such as photographing people, nature photography, sports and architectural photography.
After meeting up at the start of the day, I take care of transport between each location. Once the course is finished I will drop you back to your car.
You don’t need any special camera equipment to attend this photography skills workshop. Your regular camera will be fine. A tripod is useful, but don’t worry if you don’t have one because I have a number of spares. Students can borrow a tripod for the day for no extra charge.
