what will happen

Christmas Woolly Jumpers, Christmas Markets, Low-Light, Long Exposures and Traffic Trails – maybe some mulled wine and waffles – this Welshot Photographic Mini-Module in Manchester will have it all. Want to learn how to get the best from YOUR camera and photography in a safe, affordable and non-competitive environment but still have the flexibility of being able to wander off and be creative knowing you can, at any time, ask for help, guidance or support?

Want to join in a group photography meet-up to talk with other like-minded photographers in a fun environment but also take advantage of a Mini-Masterclass learning specific photographic techniques – Well, now you can with the Welshot Mini-Modules who will be taking in the festive atmosphere of the Albert Square (and surrounding areas) Christmas Markets.

Meeting at 2.00pm outside the Slug and Lettuce opposite the Town Hall, Albert Square you will have the opportunity to wander around taking in the atmosphere of the festive markets.

Full guidance, support and tuition will be available and then at 3.30pm we will be having a Mini-Masterclass in learning how to shoot “Traffic Trails” in Low-Light and using Long Exposure Photography. There will also be a chance to capture the superb architectural details of the many buildings in this area as well as do some Street Photography.

These events are perfect for the beginner – help will be on hand constantly throughout the event and by the end of the session you will not only have learnt a thing or three about your camera, become skilled in more than a handful of techniques but you will have had fun, made some new friends and bagged yourself some images to be proud of.

Please Note:  Food, refreshments, travel, insurance and entrance fees (if applicable) are the responsibility of the delegate.

What to Expect at a Welshot Photographic Academy Mini-Module

The Welshot Mini-Module sessions are a mixture of Academy Evenings and Full Day Events – Four to five hours in length and usually outside.  They are designed so delegates can meet-up with other photographers in a safe environment in many different locations to learn how to get the best from their camera but also have the flexibility to be creative.

A variety of photographic genres will be covered, and each event will have a photo-walkabout, were you are free to roam but still feel the benefit of the Welshot guidance, support and tuition if needed as well as being in an inspiring, fun, creative, safe and secure group environment.

Each event will have a dedicated Mini-Masterclass which covers a genre usually lasting about one to two hours.

It does not matter what camera you use* or what skill level you are, there will always be someone on hand to help you get the best from YOUR camera. However, if you are unsure please do not hesitate to contact us on lee@welshotimaging.co.uk or phone 01248719126 and we will do all we can to help you.
