Three workshops in the stunning PEAK DISTRICT
The Photographers' Place has teamed up with the RPS, and are offering a series of three workshops in the glorious Peak District of Derbyshire in May, June and July. The sessions will appeal to those who have gone beyond the beginners' stage and want a chance to immerse themselves in photography and explore landscape photography from an aesthetic as well as from a technical point of view. Workshops will be run by Professor Paul Hill MBE, Martin Shakeshaft MA, and Nick Lockett MA. There will be three different locations for the workshops which can be attended as single events or as a series if you wish.
With three vastly experienced tutors it will be possible to will cover a wide range of topics, including developing personal photographic projects that lead to a meaningful body of work; how to improve your digital capture; medium and large format photography; working with lighting - speedlights and studio lights; moving image on your DSLR; post production in Photoshop and Lightroom; publishing your photography online and in books. As well as an introduction to quadcopter aerial photography! At the end of the day there will be an open feedback session in the seminar room where the group will look at each other's selection of images made during the day. Bring your work-in-progress portfolio along for a one-to-one feedback review session with one of the tutors.
All courses run from 9.00 to 17.30, and cost £155 for non RPS members and £130 for members.
