Please take a look at our various workshops suitable for all abilities. New for 2017 we are excited to start our Click and Drink evening social
events.

INTRODUCTION TO PHOTOGRAPHY

You will meet in Old Leigh at 10am for coffee, cake and to talk photography. We will also show you some images taken by ourselves in this beautiful location to inspire your day ahead.

This photography workshop is aimed at getting you away from the auto mode on your camera and out of your comfort zone, to a whole new world of creativity. You will learn how to use your camera in manual mode and how to set the correct aperture and shutter speeds for various photographic scenarios.

The main part of this workshop will be on location in the photogenic fishing village of Leigh-on-Sea. You will be guided how to see light, textures, shapes and leading lines. All these elements will help you create more considered and striking images.

At the end of your workshop we will be happy to review your images and give you feed back. There will also be a small prize for the image of the day.
