At the Welshot Photographic Academy Evening for March it’s all about some mid-winter fun tonight for you and your camera based at the Holiday Inn – Ellesmere Port. Tonight you will be both inside and out, taking part in something a little bit different and getting creative with your photography. It is all about having some fun, being creative and making some great images from a range of photographic genres that will have you leaving the event with more than just a few new skills under your belt.

At tonight’s Academy Evening at the Holiday Inn  you will be covering:

  •  Macro / Close-Up Photography

  • Painting with Light

  • Creative Photography

  • Smoke, Water & Oil

Working in small groups you will be given a clue – this will help you to find the Welshot Team Leader and your photographic module – take part, complete, get your next clue, and so on and so on until you’ve had fun taking part in lots of photographic genres.

A brilliant session for the beginner and a great chance to get some images for the more advanced photographer too as there will be plenty of One on One time with the Team Leader as well as the model.
