HOW TO CREATE A PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT
Ideal for pros and committed enthusiasts, as well as Camera Club members aiming to submit an Associateship Panel.

OVERVIEW
These special Personal Photogrpahy Project Workshops and Field Trips are designed to help bring your photography to a completely different space. A Persoal Photo Project is an area of photography that relies as much on engaging emotionally with your viewer, as it does on getting the tech 100% right.

Our main goal will be to open your eyes to texture, shadows, lines, diagonals, extreme composition, balance and tension; understanding these concepts is key to making interesting and engaging Personal Photography Projects.

WORKSHOP STRUCTURE

  • An introductory, 60 minute long tutorial session will be given at the start to help you get the best out of the location.
  • Our special eBook, "How to Create a Personal Photography Project" will be the basis of this Workshop and Field Trip. This eBook will be emailed once the workshop is purchased
  • The workshop tutor will show you how to see a better picture, even in the most mundane of situations, and how to tie them into a coherent personal photographic project. The tutor will also show how, regardless of the lighting situation, it is possible to capture engaging and artistic images in ANY location, whether it is your kitchen, or out in the wilds of any landscape.
  • The shoot then lasts about 2 hours where you will be able to put all the tips learned into practice
  • We return to the venue where some of the shots taken on field trip are critiqued and worked on in Lightroom/Photoshop/Elements to show you what needs to be done to your photos after they are taken

FITNESS LEVEL
Most of our Workshops and Field Trips are suitable for those of a moderate fitness level. They take place mainly on flat ground, although some of them will have small inclines to climb and descend. Please see each individual Workshop and Field Trip description for specific details.

WHO ARE THESE WORKSHOPS AND FIELD TRIPS AIMED AT?
Are you a professional photographer that is feeling burned out and needs something to recharge that creative passion? Are you a creative that feels like you’re stuck doing the same thing over and over? Are you a Camera Club member who is planning to create and submit a panel for your Associateship? Our Personal Photography Project Workshops and Field Trips are designed for those who are looking to make their photography more exciting by being more deliberate about what they shoot, and . The attendee will not need a high level of technical skill, as the whole object will be to train your eye to 'see' a better picture and its connection to the other photos in your project. We welcome all digital SLR's and compact/bridge cameras from every brand, which include CSC cameras, from Fuji, Olympus, Sony, and Panasonic.

We particularly welcome smart phones and film cameras, as the workshop leader is an avid fan of both iPhoneography and film photography in all its forms.
