Love & Light Photography Workshops with The Woodards Understanding light in your camera Exposure triangle Composition For the past few years in the world of photography, there has been a huge emphasis on cameras, lenses and all the different editing tools and apps. While these are so important, for us the fundamental art of photography is understanding where light is coming from and how to use it. The creative perspective and art of capturing great images. As a woman who entered the photography world 18 years ago at the cusp of digital, there was a super fast learning curve and there were rock stars in the photography world that everyone wanted to learn from. We attended many high-end workshops in Ireland, UK and Italy and our work reflected it. While I loved the buzz around this, I was often filled with imposter syndrome. I would never ask a question because I felt it would have been a stupid one. I would wait until after the class and ask Keith because he takes in information much quicker than I do, especially when it came to the technical side of photography but thankfully for me, he has a way of explaining it to me that just made sense. Our intention for these courses is that you too can learn to take great photographs in a relaxed learning environment, where you can ask questions and we will be there to help every step of the way. This is not a course about how to use your particular camera, this is about learning how every camera works. The camera is just an instrument recording what you see, not the other way around! This course is for you if; You are not sure how the settings in your camera work and always put into P mode (which doesn’t mean professional ;-) You don’t understand the difference between shutter speed & f -stops You are not sure what composition means You know you have a great eye for photography but sometimes the “camera lets you down” You have an interest in how light works and why it matters so much Your images are too dark and are often blurry You never take that camera you always wanted out of the box and instead use your phone or would love to invest in a good camera and have no idea where to start. This half-day workshop is female only with limited attendees, there will be no judgement and plenty of time to ask questions. Towards the end of the day, there will be time to have some practice work in the studio. If you don’t have a camera, we can provide one.
