Sunday saw Susan, Stephanie, Martin and Dominic embark on Creative Photography’s Intermediate Photography Course! It may have been intermediate but the pictures taken were of the highest standard! The first part of the day involved a few discussions on more advanced portrait lighting techniques and how best to position a subject. I was seriously impressed by the portraits taken, everyone was using manual mode and looking for the best light!!
After a break at Vazon Cafe we embarked on some panning! Commonwealth Games cyclist Ann Bowditch was kind enough to cycle up and down the road while we discussed and shot various panning techniques.
After a bar lunch we headed back to the studio and discussed landscape photography. After another cuppa and checking we had our head torches it was off to the Hanois for some low light landscape shots. The dropping tide meant a bit of a hike across the rocks, quite a hike as the guide slightly miss-judged the way (sorry about that). We didn’t finish until around 9.30, well after sunset!!! Martin even had time to experiment with some light painting…..
On Monday evening we met at the studio again for a review of the pictures taken, this is my favorite part, showing the class how impressive their pictures looked on the big screen! The below pictures are just a small selection of the cracking pictures taken on the day.
The standard of pictures taken was fantastic to say the group had just two lessons! All in all a great day, great bunch and some great shots!
