2019 Photography Break at The Green Park Hotel

From Sunday the TBC February, until the morning of Thursday the TBC of February - with the option of a fifth day until the morning of Friday the TBC.

David's workshop is designed for the photographer - established or otherwise - who would like to improve his or her craft. To allow a sufficient time for both general and personal tuition, numbers for the course are restricted to a maximum of fifteen participants, and everyone is encouraged to bring with them any photography that they have carried out to date.

Basic digital work-flow demo and file handling

Photoshop Elements Tips & Tricks

Colour management

The daily programme will usually consist of Instruction and practical in the mornings and assignments/tutoring in the afternoon.

The workshop has a bias towards Landscape photography, so stout footwear and waterproof clothing are required.

If anyone who is due to take part in the workshop has particular items/subjects that they wish to cover we will do our best to address these however I know time will be short but we will do our best.

There is unfortunately no IT provision at the Green Park but I will be bringing some of my own equipment to demo on.

The emphasis on this course is on camera skills rather than computer skills. However I am more than happy if you wish to bring your own Laptop and of course your camera gear.
