A bit more about the course
See london like you’ve never seen it before.
You’ve said it to me on our photography courses often: ‘I love travel photography!’ Well, what are we waiting for then? Join me for a trip to a fantastic urban landscape right on the Jubilee Line (and the DLR, as well) – Canary Wharf, here we come!
Day or night, weekday or weekend the financial centre of London is an amazing landscape full of reflections, perspective, patterns, depth and abstraction. It is a wonderful place to practise many kinds of photography: landscapes, urban environments, slow shutter speeds, black-and-white and candid street photography.
It’s not about your camera. It’s all about you.
Whatever your focus is, there is plenty to challenge you and even more to learn at this wondrous location. And what’s even better for this 3-hour course is that it doesn’t matter what equipment you bring. DSLR, mirrorless or even your smartphone or your tablet!
Come and let me challenge you and your eye for composition! On the day – depending on the weather – I will present you with a choice of several Creative Challenges, like ‘Finding Patterns’, ‘Frames within Frames’, ‘Reflections’, ‘Air, Water and Earth’ and many others.
Like everything I do, it’s a bit zen… concentrate and relax into photography
At the beginning, we will discuss the Challenge and then you can set out to and enjoy a few hours of guided, but most importantly, relaxed and fun photography practice. At the end of the course, we’ll all gather and enjoy and impromptu slideshow of your images and discuss any technical and creative issues that you have faced so that you’ll return home not only with some great photos but also with increased confidence.
Optional high dynamic range module.
As an optional module, you can also sign up for an extra 90 minutes when I will introduce you to High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and we’ll take and process some photos together. HDR is a simple, yet powerful technique that allows you capture images that can go beyond what we think of as ‘natural’. It is a post-production technique where taking the images is really only half the fun.
