How to Pose a Model – My First Welshot Event

Image taken by Steven Boswell at the Welshot Photographic Academy Evening - How to Pose a Model

So this is me on my modelling debut at the Welshot event “How to Pose a Model” and I have to admit I was not expecting to be “the wrong” side of the camera! But I have to say it was great fun and more importantly I got a taste of what it is like […]

Above & Beyond – Guidance & Advice about Lenses

Eifion Williams from Welshot Imaging giving One to One Photographic Tuition - Learn Your Camera and Lenses

So my fellow Welshoter’s I’ve just had a very informative hour and a half with Boss Tog (aka Eifion) all about lenses. I have had an Olympus EM-5 micro four thirds camera with a 45mm prime lens and a 14-150mm zoom for about six year and wasn’t really getting to grips with it until I […]

A passionate newcomer when it comes to photography

Welshot Photographic Academy Evening, Photography Training in North Wales, Camera Workshops North Wale

Have you ever had a photography problem but couldn’t find anyone to help, or perhaps you’d like to get off program mode and switch your camera to manual for that extra level of creativity? Perhaps you’d like someone to critique your photos or someone to talk to about photography? Search the internet and you’ll find […]

Learn Basic Studio Lighting – My One to One with Eifion Williams

One to One Learn Basic Studio Lighting with Eifion Williams of Welshot Photographic Academy

Early May and I’m off to Chester to meet Eifion for my one to one on the alien (to me at least) subject of “Learning Basic Studio Lighting”. Having focused (pun fully intended) mainly on landscapes due to an innate fear and lack of knowledge about all things flash, this event was going to be […]

Oil, Smoke, Water & Macro – Creative Photography with Welshot

Welshot Photographic Academy - Creative Photography

Oil, Smoke, Water and Macro – Creative Photography with Welshot As I’ve been writing a review of some photos I’ve taken for my photography course and many of them were taken on a Welshot academy evening, I thought I’d share my experience of the event. The event was the Oil, smoke, water and macro – […]

A Long Courtship – Finally joined as an Academy Member

A long courtship. I’ve a long courtship with Welshot. I first stumbled across the society following up on some images of Kris Williams which were and remain an inspiration. So much so that the first evening I attended as a visitor was Kris talking through his work, and although Picasso was talking about painting when […]

WelshotRewards Day -Street Fashion – Off Camera Flash & Natural Light

WelshotRewards Day - Off Camera Flash Photography in Chester with Welshot

This was my first WelshotRewards Day and I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but as with all the other Welshot events I’ve been to, it was a very enjoyable day and a great opportunity to meet some fellow Welshotters that I hadn’t met before. It was led by Eifion and Jason and we split […]

How to Shoot a Ferrari – Manchester Photographic Academy Evening

How to photograph a Ferrari with Welshot Imaging Photographic Academy

I arrived at fivefourstudios for what would be my 3rd visit there (and 4th event with the Welshot Team).  Pre-event instructions were excellent and I knew exactly where to park and where and when to meet.  This Welshot Photographic Academy Evening session was all about photographing a Ferrari. The welcome you receive at fivefourstudios is […]

Welshot Photographic Lighting Academy Weekend in Chester

Welshot Photographic Lighting Academy

Like everybody else, I turn up at Welshot events and Eifion has worked his magic with the lighting ready for us to start shooting.  Let’s be honest, it really wouldn’t be practical for even the more knowledgeable of us to start doing our own thing with the lighting, and it lets us just concentrate on […]

The value of my Welshot photographic One to One with Eifion

One to One Photographic Tuition wth Eifion Williams of Welshot - Jane McCaughey

The Value of my One to One photography session with Eifion from Welshot It was a cold thankfully dry, February morning when I set off from Tintwistle to Chester. I was off to have my One to One photography session with Eifion Williams from the Welshot Photographic Academy and learn a lot more about what […]
