Photography is an ever evolving practice of technical craft and creative flair. The basis of a good image lies in combining both the art and science. In this workshop we will aim to balance the theory with practical.

Don’t forget your camera!

In the classroom environment we will cover the basics of exposure and composition.

  • Understanding digital files

Practical Afternoon

In the local environment of Liverpool city centre we will practice capturing people and places.

  • Portraits (natural and staged)
