Starts with an informal introductory chat where we go through the basic camera settings and some principles of composition and what kind of images we might want to create.
On leaving the studio for the location we pick up lunch from Blackwaterfoot's sandwich shop "On a Roll', from their excellent menu of rolls and sandwiches with delicious fillings from local ingredients.
Depending on the time of year we may take a woodland walk or maybe visit one of Arran's many beaches. It's amazing just how much there is to photograph on a seemingly 'empty' beach!
After lunch we head back stopping at another contrasting location for further photography, using filters to create atmosphere and mood in our images.
The day finishes with uploading the images onto the computer where I demonstrate the principles of digital processing and workflow. Participants images are critiqued and selected ones are edited using proprietary editing software.
The images we process are saved on your memory card so you can see the processes used to obtain each finished image.
