Composition Challenges - Weston Shore at 10am
Carefully considered composition can be what transforms an ordinary scene into a great photograph. We'll be looking at using different foreground and background techniques to improve your shots.
Each two hour class will focus on one theme or particular aspect of photography, in a different location each fortnight. A professional photographer will also be there to help answer questions and offer advice on the day. Groups larger than 12 will have multiple instructors.
The minimum age requirement is 10 years old; children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult, who will need to make a separate booking.
A DSLR camera, or a camera with manual controls is preferable, but you are welcome to bring bring any kind of camera or smartphone. There will be a substantial amount of walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella should the weather call for it.
Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can also share your photos with your peers in the Southampton Photography Facebook Group and enter our fortnightly themed competitions to have chances to win great photography prizes.
Landscape photography is possibly one of the most popular genres, so we’ll be looking at how you can improve your shots and help your photos stand out from the crowd. We’ll be focusing on composition, panoramas, equipment tips and settings to use.
