WHAT WILL HAPPEN
At this Welshot Photographic Academy Mini Module based in Manchester we will be meeting at the Castlefield Canal Basin and making our way towards the Manchester Town Hall area with a specific photographic challenge in mind – to capture the afternoon in 24 Shots or less. It is all about challenging yourself and your camera. By pretending you are working with film it will be about limiting yourself to 24 shots for the whole Afternoon of photography – no deletions allowed? – making sure you get it right in camera – FIRST TIME!
Game for another challenge? We will be making the suggestion that you set yourself a project (so all your images have a theme and flow) and to help you along the way, we are asking you to capture people taking photos – from fun “Selfies” to tourists capturing this iconic City.
This day will have it all – Street, Architectural and Creative Photography.
The Masterclass will be – How To See in Black & White – and you will be set a small challenge to make a series of B&W photos in your camera.
If you are brave enough – cover your digital screen and stop yourself from chimping (looking at the screen) – whatever happens, it will be fun, you will learn a thing or three to add to your photographic and technical skill base.
This event gives you the opportunity to work in a small group and is specifically designed for beginners to learn new skills and techniques.
Guaranteed One to One tuition, as well as group tuition throughout the day while taking part in a fun and friendly photo-shoot arranged by the Welshot Photographic Academy makes it a great day for you to get out and about with your camera.
Beginners are welcome and actively encouraged at Welshot with all help, guidance and support given.
