Retreat: Finding Your Voice as a Photographer
Day Retreat- £225
Oct 2019 Date TBC
We've developed a day course to help you find your own style as a photographer, and take images with heart and soul. This course is for you if you are already comfortable using your digital camera. It's the perfect follow-on from 'Your Journey Into Photography', so some of you may want to book for both days. If you would like to do this, please contact us directly, as we can offer a better rate.
'I've come away looking at the world a little differently and with memories of spending time with a lovely group of people.'
What will I learn?
take images with heart and soul
be creative with your photography
develop your style as a photographer through practical exercises
get the best from your camera and lens(es)
see and use light in different ways
build a portfolio with feeling
Tell me more about the day
Arrival is from 9.30am for tea and pastries ready for a 10am start. We hold our retreats in a beautiful stone barn nestled on the edge of woodland and moor on the hillside above Hebden Bridge. If it's a bit nippy outside, the log burning stove will be glowing when you come in. Warm yourself by the fire, whilst we have a cup of tea and chat about what the day will bring.
We'll discover different types of photography, discuss our preferences and learn about composition. We'll have regular practicals nearby during the day. A warming lunch will then be provided to get you all set for the afternoon. Over lunch we can answer any questions you have.
After lunch we'll put into practice everything you have learnt. We will then talk a little about post production and how we edit our photos
Before we finish, at around 5.00pm, there will be another cup of tea or a glass of something for those who don't have to rush off. If anyone is staying for the evening then we're happy to provide recommendations on good eateries and drinkeries - there are plenty of little gems in Hebden Bridge.
Just before we say our goodbyes, we'd love people to share some of their photos from the day. We hope to see you soon!
