Coming this weekend
Capturing childhood memories with a camera is something most parents and grandparents do with their children.
But how many of those photographs could be improved with a little more knowledge and technique.
On Saturday we head into Boston for a monochromic workshop "Thinking in Black and White". - a workshop that is intended to help you "see" the shot as it would appear in monochrome. It's all about having fun as we seek out lines, shapes, contrasts and tones that make great monochromatic images.
Learn to use flash like an expert.
A complete introduction to understanding and employing flash. Suitable for all levels including beginners. Speedlights (flashes) can be provided if you don't have one.
Light painting with a difference
It's great fun to paint with light - using flashlights in a completely darkened room but when your subject is a human body the results can become stunning fine-art masterpieces. With a very small group in our safe and friendly environment it's a great opportunity for you to try out this technique and genre for the first time. You will need to bring your camera and a cable release (tripod will be provided)
Later in the month
New York and Back
Street photography in one of the best locations on earth.
Come along for a guided tour of the lesser known areas of New York where real characters live and work and make fascinating images. We will also get great views of the Manhattan architecture from the High Line and stop off to photograph iconic buildings like the "Flat Iron building". It includes transport to and from Manhattan.
