Event description

Description

Edinburgh Photography Workshop - Old Town (Limited to 4 participants).

Join an 'Edinburgh Photo Walks' Photography Workshop through the historic streets of Edinburgh's Old Town.

Starting at the main front entrance to The Scottish Parliament we shall explore some of the Old Town's most iconic locations as well as a few hidden gems, finishing for sunset at one of the cities best vantage points.

I’ll explain the hows, whats and whys of photography by practical example and application. I’ll make sense of all the technical jargon and use visual aids to help demonstrate key principles. This will all be done in a straight forward and step-by-step process.

At each location you'll be given tips on how to capture the best images. I'll be there to give you instant feedback as well as offering tips and advice on how you may improve things.

We shall explore topics such as:

  • Composition (Rule of thirds, Lead-in lines, Symmetry, Patterns, Perspective, Balancing elements, Depth etc)

  • Understanding the basic elements of exposure (ISO, Shutter speed and Aperture)

  • Creative exposure (How the elements of exposure can affect your image in a creative way)

  • Semi-manual and full-manual settings

  • How to make everything look sharp or blur the background / foreground (Depth of field)

This Photography Workshop is best suited to photographers of a beginner / intermediate level or those who'd like to explore some of the best photographic locations within Edinburgh.

You will benefit far more from the Workshop if you have a digital camera with semi-manual or full-manual controls. Although you're welcome I generally don't recommend you attend this Workshop if your only camera is a Point-and-shoot / Smart phone / iPhone.

Over the duration of the Workshop I'll be available to help answer any photography-related questions you have as well as pointing out some of the many interesting and historic sights along the way.

The Photography Workshop will finish at 5pm as this will giving us time to capture sunset.
