Responding to the ‘A Portrait Of…’ exhibition at Open Eye Gallery, tutors Kevin Crooks and Declan Connolly will be running a photography course over two sessions: ‘Portraits of Home’. Why do we take portraits and what stories can we tell through lighting, expression and pose?

The first session takes place on 06 August and is a practical tutorial/open conversation around how to create mood, character and narrative through creative uses of shutterspeed, aperture and ISO. The course is tailored to be accessible to all skill levels— from beginner to practicing photographer. At the end of the first session, we will set a brief, to be completed before the next meeting.

The second session takes place on 17 August at 11am and consists of portfolio reviews and building the beginnings of a digital exhibition, showing on the gallery’s exterior.

Bring:

  • 10 images or objects (or a mix of both!) that say something about you.
  • Camera
  • Lenses
  • Tripod (if you have one)
  • Lighting equipment (if you have any)

Limited equipment will be provided on the night but unfortunately cannot be loaned out for use outside of the gallery. Refreshments will be available throughout.
