Impressions of Westonbirt Photography Course

This one day workshop is designed to help you look beyond the obvious and develop your creative eye as together we find new ways of interpreting Westonbirt.

With a fondness for abstracts, and finding new ways of representing subject matter, tutor Andy Page is well placed to help you to learn to see traditional scenes in a new light, and with a maximum of just six on each workshop you are ensured of plenty of individual help and guidance.

We will look initially at details with the emphasis on capturing shape, form and texture with some fabulous exotic barks, exquisitely shaped leaves and delicate flower heads as our subject matter. We will then move on to look at the techniques of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), zoom bursts, and multiple exposures which provide an opportunity for the creation of some unique images. Experimentation is key here and you will be encouraged to find your own way of capturing the subject, taking your photography to new levels. It's both fun and challenging as you discover the artist within you.
