Another WelshotRewards Day – A Members Only event that only WelshotRewards can purchase (indicated £’s will be converted to WelshotRewards at checkout) and this time we are in the Castlefields area of Manchester. An area full of history with so many photographic opportunities – from close-up and macro to scenes perfect for HDR. Today is all about learning how (or refreshing those skills) to use all your cameras main functions – concentrating on the “Exposure Triangle” – Aperture – Shutter – ISO… The three main components needed to take a photograph no matter what camera you use. By bringing them all together you will always be able to create an image that you have in your mind’s eye.
At this Welshot Photographic Academy full day, on location, photo-shoot event the “Editorial Edge” styling (clothing and techniques) will team with the backdrop of the cosmopolitan Georgian Quarter in Liverpool. Think clean tailored lines, beautiful models, in a vibrant urban and sometimes derelict landscape – this is a catwalk stopping combo! Think Peter Lindbergh when he photographed the great models in the Meat Packing Districts of New York in a documentary fashion style.
Come and join us and the Welshot Team in Liverpool and be prepared to make and create some stunning images. learn a thing or three, have some fun and make some new friends.
Leading on from our previous Post Processing events – these sessions are designed to act as both a “Stand Alone” or “Continued Learning”building on what you have already learnt previously. Welshot events are great for getting those fantastic images – but what do you do with them once you get them off your camera. To help answer that question we are running a post processing day introducing you to the basics of processing and explaining the options you have which will enhance your images.
After the success of the 2018 “Shortest Night” we will, once again, be running this, not so short, non-stop night of photography. Circumnavigating Anglesey and Snowdonia” – starting in Llanberis with a picnic supper in the Evening and finishing at breakfast, both of which are included in the cost of this event. Shooting for nearly 15 hours solid. Most of the 2018 delegates are already pre-booked onto this event so spaces are already limited.
Off Camera Flash Photography, Wedding Dresses, Suits and Ties, beautiful backdrops in the stunning location of the Snowdonia landscape – it can only mean one thing… Frocks on Rocks (with Suits) is back! For the last time. This time our annual photographic extravaganza for 2019 is inspired by beautiful wedding gowns and suits. Our locations will be everything from waterfalls, lakes and rivers – starting in Betws-Y-Coed and finishing in Beddgelert – this fantastic day of photography is going to have it all for the photographer, beginner or advanced.
Tonight, at the Welshot Photographic Academy Evening in Beaumaris it’s all about shooting and making an HDR photograph. High Dynamic Range can be a useful skill and technique to learn and can be used in a variety of situations. If it is done correctly no one will even be able to tell your images/exposures have even been merged. Tonight, you will be learning how to shoot HDR around the quaint Village of Beaumaris, including the Pier itself – where you could, if you would like, practice your long exposures too. We will then head back, have our supper and refreshments and we will show you how to post process those images.
Another Afternoon Mini-Module, specifically designed for the beginner to learn a new skill and technique – Off Camera Flash Photography – while taking part in a fun and friendly photo-shoot arranged by the Welshot Photographic Academy. This event gives you the opportunity to work in a small group and specifically designed for beginners with guaranteed One to One tuition as well as group tuition throughout the day. You will also be able to perfect your “Working with Models” and posing skills along the way – all while creating strong, full of impact photos for your portfolio
Liverpool, specifically the Albert Dock, is the location for this Welshot Photographic Academy Mini-Module with a Masterclass, 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! 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.
At the Welshot Photographic Academy it’s all about being creative in the landscape with your camera and tonight is no exception. Tonight, we are in the picturesque location of Betws-Y-Coed where waterfalls, landscapes, quaint cottages and railway stations will provide you, the photographer, with some great locations to capture in your camera. From learning how to make a long exposure to blur the water of the numerous waterfalls we will be visiting to having a go at shooting for HDR when you photograph the beautiful buildings that are abound in the Conwy valley.
A firm favourite with Welshot members has always been shooting with coloured gels. Tonight at the Welshot Photographic Academy Evening in Chester, based at the Crowne Plaza we will be using Off Camera Flash and working in a variety of indoor locations. You will learn about how to use OCF and gels in a creative way to light your Model up with coloured gels attached to the light source and how this will help to create truly stunning images. Using a colour wheel, you will also learn about which colours complement each other and how to avoid colour clashing.
