This is a day for photography lovers to meet, socialise and take photos together.
What will you learn on this course? This one-day course is a chance for anyone who loves photography to spend a day with like-minded people. It’s as much about socialising with other photography enthusiasts developing your interest and skills. You will spend part of the day out and about around WAC taking notice of the surrounding and capturing them through photographs.
You will be able to practice taking landscape and portrait photographs so be prepared to have your picture taken! Tutor Kate Green will be on hand to offer guidance and support, honing your skills and introducing new techniques to shoot great images and learn how photography may help with your own wellbeing.
As a result of this short course you focus on slowing down, relaxing and enjoying your surroundings. At the end of the course you will gain: • Improvement in confidence and self-esteem • Reduced stress and improvement in relaxation techniques • Fun and relaxed social interaction • Increased awareness of one’s own story, and of other people’s stories • Improved photography skills.
You will also spend some time back in Helen Martin studio reviewing your photographs and discussing how to assess and select your best images for printing or sharing.
You will need a camera that allows you to shoot in manual mode (allowing you to adjust the shutter speed and aperture) and be familiar with how to adjust the settings yourself on your camera. If you have a laptop or tablet that you use for processing your images it would be helpful, but not essential, for you to bring this and any connecting cables or card readers along too.
