“The event is not what happens. The event is that which can be narrated”.  –Allen Feldman

Today’s workshop will focus on telling a story through the camera lens. The students will be introduced to famous photographers such as Gregory Crewdson and Robert Frank to inspire them to create their own stories. We will discuss ways to create a compelling narrative and work alongside the students to help them put together their own story. In order to take a great photo, camera mechanics will also be covered, so the students understand how to use their aperture, shutter speed and ISO effectively in their shots.

Looking for Light

Ages: 12-15

Time: 11:00-16:00

Fee: £50, optional d-slr rental £10

One of the key aspects of taking a great photograph is getting the light right. Whether it’s manufactured from a flash or it’s natural from the sun, where it hits and how strong it is can make or break an image. Today’s workshop is about catching the right light, releasing it from the camera flash or finding sunlight and bouncing it off a reflector. We will also go over the ways the student can make their photograph brighter or darker in camera to adjust to the light they are catching, explaining camera mechanics and how to over and under expose their images for a dramatic feel.  We will be taking all sorts of photographs to experiment, including shadowed portraits, abstract reflections and dramatic street images, which will provide each student with an inspiring set of images from the day.
