Chester @ f1.8 – Photography WelshotRewards Day

Welshot Photographic Academy - Welshot Does Chester @ F1.8

I thoroughly enjoy a bit of street photography and always carry a camera alongside my phone wherever I go.  But I always struggle to get the shot.  When I do it’s more by luck than judgement! So this event, the WelshotRewards Day – Chester at f1.8  was a reward too good to miss – street […]

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 […]

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 […]

Welshot Does… Dubrovnik 2017 – Day One

A Welshot Does…  Discover – Experience – Photograph Dubrovnik Adventure  Excited though we were, the prospect of leaving home in the middle of the night for Manchester Airport was not something we relished. For me, it wasn’t too bad as I live closer than the others and so left home at 3.45 am thanks to […]
