Outdoor photography workshop with Jemma Watts

Sat 14 Oct & Sat 2 Dec

Part of Workshops at the Tack Room

You will need a camera that can be set to ‘Manual’

The day begins with an overview of camera functionality, followed by outside practical work photographing the countryside around Snape Maltings. It would be nice to do a little documentary photography of the area, and produce a small project of work.

We then head back to the studio to critique your shots and talk through the editing process, in order to showcase your best photos.

You will leave this workshop with a much better understanding of your camera and a sound, practical knowledge of how to best use it when out and about.

What to expect from the workshops

You’ll learn the basics of how your camera functions, and then the focus will shift to the practicalities of taking great photos, by understanding the following:

  • ISO, exposure and aperture
  • Shutter speed
  • Lenses
  • Light
  • Composition
  • Filters
  • Editing and processing your images
  • A few tricks of the trade!
