I had not thought you could transfer a photography workshop to an online setting, but the two online mobile photography workshops I did back in April in support of the ISPCC were such a huge success, raising over €5k for the charity, that in conjunction with the Gallery of Photography in Dublin, we are now planning a workshop for June 29th and July 4th.
Coming from an education background, I am very aware of the need to allow students put into practice what they are learning. These two 90-minute workshops are structured so that in the first week, I will walk you through how to get the most from your smartphone camera. Then in a series of easy exercises I will heighten your visual awareness equipping you to create more dynamic and creative compositions in your photography, all the time relating it back to your own personal style of photography.
We then have a week until the second of the workshops. In this time you have the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning. I will give you guidelines – according to your own photographic style – of different types of photographs you can get and during the week we will connect and I will provide personalised and individual feedback on the photographs you create, helping you to further sharpen your photographic eye and create images to be proud of.
Jump forward to the second workshop and now the focus will be on editing your photographs to put your personal stamp on your images. I will show you how to use Snapseed (a free editing app) to make your images visually dynamic and captivating to the eye. I will continue to guide you and provide constructive criticism. There will then be the opportunity to share our photographs with the like-minded photography enthusiasts on the workshop.
By the end of the two sessions, you will have photos to be proud of and you will be seeing and thinking more photographically and have developed your own personal style and leave the sessions with a passion and excitement for photography.
Looking forward to seeing you online for a great mobile photography workshop!
