Confident with their camera controls, photographers attending my Gold Advanced Photography Course have a high percentage of successful photographs. If you think you may need a few more skills before coming along, then consider my Silver Intermediate Course instead.
This course is to learn the tricks of being able to shoot particular types of photograph and the learning will be through practical experimentation. We especially look at putting meaning into your photos and so they become a story and not just a ‘pretty picture’.
Part 1 –
Portraiture. We’ll create some outside portraits with off-camera flash, so doing more work at blending natural and flash light as well as modelling, directing and compositional techniques. Lighting the subject is also an important part of this module.
Light Painting, stars and Star trails. (A night time shoot somewhere really dark.)
Pinhole photography. I’ll provide a body cap for your camera with a pre-drilled hole. I’ll need to know what camera you’ll be using. We’ll also work with “low-fi” images.
Advanced and telephoto landscapes. Discovering features and patterns.
Abstracts, close-ups, macro and photographic stories.
Experimenting with depth of field – getting to know really your lenses, focal lengths and apertures.
Seeing and shooting in Black and White. The Adams Archer Zone system and tonal control
Chiaroscuro, plus high and low key, plus light diffusion.
Street Photography, usually in Alnwick or Morpeth
Advanced colour theory and advanced contrast.
This is scheduled to run over 10 weeks with each session being at least an hour-and-a-half long. It starts on Friday 20th April at 2.00 p.m. and is held in and around Amble, Alnmouth, Alnwick, Warkworth and Druridge Bay. Start times will vary, but will suit the participants. The order of lesson delivery may change too.
You will join in with a small number of other photographers on this scheduled course. If you prefer, you can also book this as a one-to-one course.
Or, if you want, book this course with three or more friends you can do so. I don’t take more than six people on my courses.
I really look forward to seeing you.
