Lockdown Creative Photography Workshop (at home)
If you're facing self-isolation and want to brush up on your photography skills, or need something to distract you and relieve the boredom, I have some new remote learning packages to keep you occupied. Over the course of 2-weeks I will set you accessible photo challenges to do in your own home and garden. Then you'll send the finished images to me for individual critique and personalized feedback. Video one-to-ones also available if preferred. I have designed three separate tutorials:
1: PHOTO JOURNALING/MAKING A VISUAL DIARY
This tutorial centres around a visual diary, which you will create by taking pictures on a daily basis. Support and encouragement will be given through discussions to help you refine your photographic technique. This tutorial will help you become clearer about when and why you photograph, and show you how to make engaging pictures from ordinary everyday moments.
2: IN THE GARDEN PHOTOGRAPHY
Your garden is teeming with life and should not be neglected photographically. I will share basic photography skills and tips on using a range of camera equipment, from DSLRs to smartphones and add-ons. I will discuss common problems you may experience when photographing your gardens and plants, such as harsh light, wet weather, and cramped spaces, and more specific advice tailored to your needs. This tutorial is for anyone who wants discover the magical environment living just outside their home windows.
This tutorial is focused on the making of photographic portraits. You can choose to take self-portraits, or photograph someone you are living with. We will discuss what makes an engaging portrait, the use of background, natural lighting, and direction. The tutorial’s main objective is to leave you with a technical knowhow that you may apply within your own practice.

Each tutorial is 2-weeks long, enough time for me to guide you through a number of photo assignments and give constructive feedback.
