Kent Photography Course 2
This full-day digital photography course straddles the border of Kent and Sussex. We meet at Dungeness before photographing a beautiful church in the Romney marshes, and finish up in Rye with its cobbled streets and ancient buildings. Again, in keeping with all my location workshops each place offers a very different photographic challenge. Dungeness is bleak and very atmospheric, great for developing an understanding of available light and the creative use of focal length. Romney Marshes is a landscape of big skies and open spaces. It’s ideal for working on your composition skills. What can you say about Rye? It’s a marvellous place for a photography shoot. Full of architectural detail to keep the photographer happy.
This digital photography workshop is suitable for all levels of photographer from beginners to more experienced photographers. It’s also relevant regardless of whether you are using a film or a digital camera. I teach a maximum of five participants on each location course, which means that I can tailor the learning experience to each individual student.
My photography courses include tuition on subjects such as camera controls and menus, creative use of shutter and aperture, white balance, creative use of focal length, photographic filters, exposure modes, exposure histogram, composition, use of fill flash, focus modes plus use of light and colour.
This course is limited to no more than five students per scheduled date as this way I can easily get around to everyone and personally tailor their learning experience
In addition to the subjects already listed my workshops are designed to be confidence building and fun. I think we all learn and understand more of what we are told in a relaxed, friendly environment. If you have any questions during or after the course has finished I’m more than happy to answer them all.
Once the workshop is over the photography students receive a full set of notes covering all the subjects discussed during the day. Although this course features much landscape photography, all the skills and techniques taught are readily transferrable to other photographic subjects such as photographing people, nature photography, sports and architectural photography.
The day begins with all course attendees meeting at a pre-arranged point. I used to take everyone in my own seven-seater car to the different photographic locations, but at the moment, in keeping with the government’s social distancing advice, all course attendees will be required to follow me in their own cars throughout the day. The locations are close to each other and this does not involve driving long distances.
You don’t need any special camera equipment to attend this photography skills workshop. Your regular camera will be fine. A tripod is useful, but don’t worry if you don’t have one because I have a number of spares. Students can borrow a tripod for the day for no extra charge.
Student testimonial from this course: “Even though I have been on 3 of your courses now there is always something new to learn and you have inspired me to dust off that wide angle lens and give it a go” – Keith Payne
