Cars through the Lens - Pocket Camera Photography Workshop

Photography Workshop
10.30AM - 4PM
£55 per person

The day will begin by spending some time in the Museum taking photos for you to review and use as a basis for discussion over the day.

You will then spend some time in the classroom looking at the tools available to use with your device, including filters and accessories, and seeing how these could be used to improve your earlier photos.

You will then have time to take more photos to try these tools out and then come back together to review.

The next stage will be to look at the image itself and review whether it could be improved by changes to its composition, angles or lighting. This will be followed by more time to try out the recommendations, taking more photos.

The day will conclude with time in the classroom looking at the basic editing of an image using various apps on phones, tablets and laptops. These editing tools will include image resizing, cropping, content edits and colour correction.

The workshop will be led by Richard Cook, a recently retired art teacher and accomplished artist with many years’ experience of social media photography. He will be on hand to provide supportive critique of the images coupled with helpful suggestions and advice.
