what will happen

At Tonight’s Photographic Academy Evening it is all about Macro Photography with a difference.  Based at fivefourstudios in Manchester you will realise just how much fun you can have with mashed potato….  And fruit, sweets, cupcakes, biscuits and, of course, your tripod and camera… 

Using miniature figures (Lego as well as really teeny tiny model railway miniature figures) to create scenes such as men scaling mountains made of mashed potato, white water rafting on doughnuts, swimming in cups of tea and constructing a building made of sugar lumps – tonight is about getting creative with your camera and photography and the only limitation is your imagination.

Welshot will provide all the props you need as well as vision boards to help you get started and then all you have to do is create….  Photos that are brilliant as “Stock” images or just fun for your portfolio

For inspiration, ideas and an indication of what will be happening at this Academy Evening please take a look at this forum thread – https://www.welshotimaging.co.uk/forums/forum/welshot-does-create-a-scene-creative-photography-epa-13th-june-2017/

Academy Evenings are PERFECT for the beginner just starting out on their photographic journey.

Academy Evenings are where you will meet other Welshotters in a relaxed and informal environment – these are the best way to get to know how Welshot works and how we can help you.
