Workshop #2 – Creativity in Photography– This course is all about inspiration and being creative with your photography – Mastering long exposures, Night shooting and light painting, sensitive portraiture, working with movement.
This course will explore shooting with professional techniques that will take your shooting to a new level. How to create the shot that really has the look…the silky look in water, introducing movement into your shots, the subject that jumps out of the background, the moody portrait, lighting a subject effectively….
The course will require a camera, ND filters and a tripod but no other special gear and we will be using general items we all have access to. An external flash will help but will not be crucial.
