28 April 2018, 10.00 AM - 28 April 2018, 4.00 PM

Linnaus study room, University of Bristol Botanic Garden


Learn to make your images have more impact in this one day workshop with Graham Parish, and discover how the simplest of cameras can take fabulous shots.

Firstly you'll look at how different techniques can improve composition. You'll then look at some guidelines around composition and how these can be used to add impact. Finally you'll look at how to assess an image ie - what makes an image look good. Whenever we've learnt something in class we'll go outside into the gardens and put it into practice.

By the end of the day you will have learnt how to improve your photos by using better composition techniques and also have an understanding of what gives an image more impact.

Suitable for complete beginners or anyone seeking the skills or confidence to get off auto mode.

Your camera will have to have both aperture priority (typically marked A or Av) and shutter priority modes (typically marked S or T). Any of these types of camera will do - compact, bridge, csc (compact system camera) or dslr

£50 (including a light lunch - drinks not included)
