We have a Digital Photography Workshop scheduled for May 6th-8th running at the stunningly beautiful Liss Ard House outside Skibbereen.
Whether making a photographic record of our stunning landscapes and seascapes, indulging your passion for portrait photography or simply recording your local wildlife or native plant life; photography is an increasingly popular, absorbing and sometimes financially rewarding activity. This detailed course is suitable for beginners and those with more experience and runs over a weekend. It will look at the range of equipment available to digital stills photographers and will include detailed coverage of camera settings and techniques for photography in more challenging conditions.
The emphasis will be on practical work sessions at selected locations in West Cork. If you simply wish to make better digital photographs or add a particular discipline to your range of skills as a photographer then this weekend workshop will prove invaluable…with tips and advice from professionals on how to create award winning digital images with the equipment you already have – without spending a fortune on new gear! Course notes will be provided to take away. Included in the workshop will be a session on how to use Photoshop to process and enhance your images to award winning standard.
