Tonight, it is all about Off Camera Flash, Creating Bokeh and Working with Models using the lights of Chester to help create that special background effect to give your images that WOW factor.  At this Welshot Chester Photographic Academy Evening based at the Chester Crowne Plaza we will be out and about taking photos of our wonderful Welshot Models using the Off Camera Flash technique - aiming to create the bokeh effect using the available light of Chester  

What is Bokeh?  Bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke, which means "blur" or "haze", or boke-aji, the "blur quality." Bokeh is pronounced BOH-Kə or BOH-kay.  Bokeh is “the effect of a soft out-of-focus background that you get when shooting a subject, using a fast lens, at the widest aperture, such as f/2.8 or wider.” Simply put, bokeh is the pleasing or aesthetic quality of out-of-focus blur in a photograph.

Welshot is TEN and we are CELEBRATING!

Ten years ago the Welshot Photographic Academy was launched in Menai Bridge, Anglesey and since then we've gone on to launch Academy Evenings and Events in Chester, Manchester, Ellesmere Port and Liverpool. We've been everywhere from Hong Kong to Halifax, from Iceland to London, from Budapest to Cambridge - we've covered every photographic genre under the sun, from Mains Studio Flash to all night shoots on Anglesey and Paris, from Macro and Close-Up to capturing water drops - not to mention Landscape, Seascape and Nightscape sessions we've had.  All these events have one thing in common - fun has been had, friendships have been made, photos have been created and techniques have been learnt - and all included CHIPS too!

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.
