The Art of Photography
Click here to see a video about the workshops program.
I find it really hard to keep up with camera models these days. In the past you would buy a camera that you could afford, lust after ones that were out of your reach and then get on with your photography.
It seems these days, almost weekly, there is a new camera model, and our eyes are fixed firmly on the 'latest release' pages of photo magazines.
However the real question one has to ask, with all this upgrading, downloading and equipment shifting, is our photography getting any better? Are our images improving? Are we truly able to say that compared to two, four, six years ago, our images have displayed a great leap forward. The usual line is, I hope so!
I find the best way to improve is to switch to manual, turn off the review screen and go out and do 20 to 30 test shots. By learning to get around your camera easily means you spend more time in the field concentrating on the image. And despite what many say, photography is about what we see and what we convey to others.
When I photograph with my digital camera I am usually on aperture priority or manual. I am in control. Auto everything or program just restricts you or better still restricts your image.
Photography is fun and most who come on a workshop display that sense of pleasure. Our workshops are fun and packed with many insights into how to improve seeing, quality and your photographic intent.
You will notice that there are a few new workshops this year, all designed to improve and challenge your photography. If you decide to join us this year that would be great. I know you will learn more than expected and that will make your photography even much more fun than it is now.
Best of luck.
