    A Workshop Approach :
    On - Location

    We work at different times of day; crossing a variety of Provençal Landscape, Situations and Places. All inspire and invite response.

     

           There is no competition, no winners or losers, it is a pleasurable stress free week, learning, practising and experimenting with new strategies in Photography, to take home and improve upon.

    We work individually, and together through several practical Projects.
    In the secret heat of the Luberon mountains
    There is new & renewed attraction and desire to use photography as you may have never thought before. Practical & Project based. Learning & Discovery.

    The Projects of the Workshop

    ...put learning & practising together. A practical approach to improving your Photography.

     

     

     

     

    Each Project has a Subject an Introduction, on-going Technical advice when appropriate, never an avalanche of information!

    Each Project finishes with a Review, Feedback, and Editing.

     

    We take this feedback to the next Project, and put it to work at the next Location. Simultaneously  exploring Provence.

     

    Learn strategies for making Portraits which speak.

     

    New ways to approach the Subject and reduce technical issues to a minimum.

     


    Post - Production Between - Production
    Editing & Treatment in Photoshop on Mac or PC.
    We work on the screen: Edit, make productive assessment of the results, treat where necessary - around a table, or on-location. Any time is a good time to ask.

    Choosing - among the images you have taken & Why? And, Why not the other photos?

    On the computer, going straight to the heart of a 'good' Image.

    Where relevant I will show you options for expression to help the image support your intention and communicate successfully.

    You will become familiar and proficient with the essential Tools and Techniques of Photoshop. And where appropriate stretch yourself.

    Take advantage of the RAW format, make local or global changes and prepare your work for sharing. For example: on the World Wide Web, as Slide shows, Galleries, in email, Print or Print on demand Books.
