Turning Form into Rhythm at More London

Pret A Manger

£25.00

A granite slab is not just a granite slab!

Some imagery has immediate impact and it is easy to understand why we are able to connect with it so easily. Landscapes, portraiture and street photography fall naturally into this category.

Other images remain 'unseen' because many consider the subject to hold little value.

By allowing your imagination and command of your photographic tools to expand and evolve you will be able to both see and capture the artistic value in any given situation with any subject.

Join us to explore the many forms in and around More London that are often overlooked and underappreciated as we turn form into rhythm using texture, colour, light and space.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Good subject selection
  • How to dissociate your subject from the surroundings
  • How to apply compositional techniques including unusual framing and viewpoints
  • The importance of simplicity
  • Creative use of camera settings

EXPERIENCE

  • All levels welcome!

EQUIPMENT

  • Kit lens (18-55mm, 24-70mm) or 50mm
  • Standard/medium telephoto (e.g. 70-200mm)
  • Any camera or smartphone
  • Optional - small tabletop tripod/gorillapod
  • Please note that full size tripods are not allowed in the areas we will be exploring

OTHER ESSENTIALS

  • A curious mind
  • A fun and experimental attitude!
  • A comfy pair of shoes
  • Please check with TFL for any disruptions that may delay your journey
  • Please check the weather and dress accordingly
