It is ideal for someone just starting out on their photographic journey and wants to take the next step by making digital adjustments to get the best out of their images The course can be run over over 4 weeks in addition to your normal club meetings or it can be a one day session .

Photography & Art £125.00 per session
How many times has a judge visiting your club has said to your members? – “I’ve seen this image many times before and again this one is no different from all the others.” If you’ve heard this before then then this session is just right for your club. In it we discuss how photography and art combine to create images that are more than just technically perfect. This is about involving elements of design and art with images that set photographs apart from the “run of the mill” images we see everywhere. In the session we’ll be making use of the power of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom by developing a workflow that includes aspects of TONE, COLOUR and ARTISTIC EFFECTS to develop a style that is uniquely the photographers.
What Does a Judge Look For? £125.00 per session
Have you ever wondered what a judge looks for when reviewing an image? In this session we delve into the mind of a judge and explore elements of an image from the perspective of being a judge by asking ourselves whether we really understand the image that we’ve entered into the club’s competitions. We look at some simple questions we should ask ourselves before submitting an image and discover the secrets of being self critical of our images.
We look forward to hearing from you and helping you to take your photography to another level
