What you'll do

After a coffee and a croissant, we'll spend some time getting to know your camera by going MANUAL to shoot smarter! Colin will show you how to be more creative with your camera’s functions, both in the ‘Usher Hall’ (our designated photography studio) and the gardens of Studio Faire. You will learn how to utilise both natural and studio flash light, and be given some of Colin’s secrets for creating stunning compositions. We'll then go out and about. Firstly in Nérac, to the wonderful farmer’s market, and later to the gorgeous surrounding area, so that Colin can show you how best to capture the beauty of the people, produce, architecture and landscapes. After lunch, prepared by Julia, we will focus on developing your favourite shots using Adobe Lightroom to ensure they are useable on social media as well being print-ready. If you'd also like to spend some time with the studio flash kit, then we can set up and shoot portraits.

Whether you want to learn more about going manual with you DSLR or are interested in improving your landscape, portraits and social media images, I can tailor your day course to suit what you'd like to focus on.
