Summer Storytelling Photography - Romsey Town Centre - 9am-11am
What do you envisage when you think about a British summer? Storytelling photography is all about capturing a scene or a passage of time in a series of shots. When these are presented together as a photo series, one after the other, sometimes as a collage or an album, they can tell a story in a much more emotive way than a single shot can. Join us on this photo walk as we look at ways of creatively capturing the nature and atmosphere of late summer, with tips, feedback and advice from the instructor.
£14pp     8 places left
We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Southampton and Hampshire. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Southampton Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Dave was very helpful. Easy to understand instructions and suggestions. Only two of us on the course today so lots of questions answered. Dave was extremely patient with us both. He had time to make suggestions for us both and he had researched my Bridge camera settings so that he was better informed on how he might help improve my photography. Really enjoyed it. Thank you.

Really enjoyed the event - everyone was really friendly and Phil was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. For me, it is really nice to spend time at a nice photography location with others who have a similar interest, where there is no judgement regarding level of ability. This group was perfect for that.

Most of the other participants in the event were relative beginners, and the workshop was geared to that level. It was not clear from the event announcement that this would be the case. I did not gain anything from the event really, being a more experienced photographer. Most participants did gain from it, the tutor geared his input well for them.
