M33 Photo Project Workshop 1 - Photography Basics (Digital)
Thu 6 October 2016, 10:00 – 14:00 BST
Strong Island Media working with The National Museum of the Royal Navy present a new photography project focusing on the historic WWI ship HMS M.33, located at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Over a series of four half-day workshops participants will learn about the basics of photography, the ship, archive images from WWI, how to shoot & hand develop 35mm film and then the creation of a final exhibition on board the M.33 of the images created during the project. The M.33 Photography Project takes place over Thursday morning/early afternoon workshops (from 10am to 2pm) throughout October & November 2016.
This first workshop, in the series of four, covers learning the photography basics onboard and around the M.33. Participants on the workshop will learn about aperture, shutter speed, composition and more in the first 2.5 hours while exploring M.33. During a lunch break participants on their cameras would select a series of their favourite images from the earlier walk, which in the following part of the workshop will be displayed on a projector and reviewed as a group, looking at different techniques used, how to develop ideas, etc.
Only 12 places are available on each workshop and places are FREE thanks to the NMRN.
The four workshops are planned to take photographers, from beginner to experienced, from improving camera skills all the way to being part of the exhibition at the end so it would be great if participants could book on to every workshop and take part in the project all the way through, but this isn't necessary and workshops can be booked individually.
Strong Island Media have been delivering photography workshops for 5 years and in the last 18 months run over 30 different 'Photography Walkshops' in and around Portsmouth for photographers of all ages and abilities.
