Full Day Workshop 2:
“Composition in Landscape Photography” + “Black and White Photography Essentials”

 

Immerse yourself in an intensive and comprehensive day of Landscape Photography sessions. The morning will be an exploration of Composition in landscape photography, as this is one of the most important keys to being a creative and successful photographer, and one of the skills many photographers find most challenging to master. The afternoon will involve a deep-dive into the world of Black and White Photography. Colour is such a strong element in photography, that it can often “steal the limelight” from other elements such as texture, tone, pattern and shape. Being able to “see in Black and White” takes a bit of practice, but the ability to craft a high-impact monochrome image will certainly add a feather to your cap! There will be a classroom component, a number of practical activities incorporating the beautiful scenery of Bright, and a post-processing demonstration using Photoshop.
