Exploring Camera Angles in Photography - Newcastle Quayside - 10am-12pm - 2 hours
In this session we'll be looking at how we can challenge ourselves to find new viewpoints and perspectives when out with our camera, and how different angles can tell different photographic stories.
We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Newcastle. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.
Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.
What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!
What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!
Moody Street Photography - Newcastle City Centre - 4pm-6pm - 2 hours
Photography is all about playing with light, but for this session we're taking things a little darker. We'll be exploring the dark, moody and black&white side to photography, as we wind our way through the location and create some hauntingly atmospheric shots with light and shadow. Great chance to add some interesting and different shots to your own portfolio!
Camera Settings Refresher Session - Leazes Park - 10am-12pm - 2 hours
Not been to one of our group sessions before? Or would you like a chance to refresh your camera skills and pick up a few new tips? Come along to this session where the instructor will be taking you on a photo walk whilst bringing you up to scratch with using manual mode.
Landscape photography is possibly one of the most popular genres, so we’ll be looking at how you can improve your shots and help your photos stand out from the crowd. We’ll be focusing on composition, panoramas, equipment tips and settings to use.
I Was brillent and Dan was fantastic knows where to go 5/5 by aaron hobday 8-12-2018
I enjoyed the photography session. The topic was selective colour photography, which I have not tried before. It was quite difficult to find appropriate subjects in Newcastle but I did take away a good idea of selective colour photography from the session, 5/5 by Alison Halliday 26-11-2018
Dan Tuff, the photographer was professional, helpful and approachable. I enjoyed the event and learned from it. 5/5 by Alison Halliday 11-11-2018
Very well organised, very informal and informative, I really enjoyed it and took quite a bit away from the day, especially when I saw the results.
