Event description

Description

Description

Learn how to create unusual abstract photographs and landscapes in the beautiful surroundings of Sefton Park.

This course will be led by photographer Mark Reeves LRPS who specialises in using a range of in-camera creative techniques in his work.

The beauty of in-camera techniques is that there is much less need to spend time using photo editing software and it can be much more satisfying producing your results with a camera rather than with a computer.

The day will begin with a presentation and discussion of various creative techniques that can be adopted using modern digital cameras. This will probably take place outdoors – hopefully sitting in the sunshine!

Most of the day will then be spent photographing at various locations around the park practising the different techniques with Mark's ongoing guidance.

Towards the end of the day there will be time to share some of the results using a laptop. If participants wish, they will be able to send their favourite images of the day to Mark for feedback and for sharing with each other via facebook or a web page.

Participants should be aware that the results from using these in-camera techniques can be unpredictable and that some techniques are more suited to particular lighting conditions than others. So please come with an open mind and a willingness to experiment!

Whilst beginner photographers will be welcome, the course is intended for photographers who understand how to use their cameras. If you are new to photography or have a new camera, please make sure you are familiar with your camera's basic functions. Even if you don't fully understand what they mean, you should know how to set the camera for manual focus, manual exposure, aperture priority and shutterspeed priority.


Tutor

The tutor is Wirral-based photographer Mark Reeves. Mark has been a photographer for many years, having worked with both film and digital processes.

In 2014 he was runner-up in the urban section of the prestigious Landscape Photographer of the Year award.
