Liverpool has it all, from the Beatles to the cathedrals, from great city architecture to the docks! Liverpool goes back to 1207 and it has an extremely rich history.About the workshop
You will learn to see, understand and work with both available and artificial light and find out what it takes to work with people in front of the camera. Practice within the group as well as with (no need to panic here) strangers from the street. Don't worry, we will make this a very safe and fun experience for everyone, exploring proven street portraiture techniques to achieve great results. You will also be shooting some of the amazing and historic Liverpool architecture.
The workshop includes a primer on exposure and colors and on the creative angles of photography, including the basics of image composition and the all important intersection of the visual hierarchies of black and white vs. color.
Last but not least, John Arnold will initiate you into the basics of post processing portraits and architecture.Is this for you?
This workshop is open to everyone with a digital camera who wants to advance their photography. Basic camera knowledge is required. Questions? Just ask
The workshop is hosted by Chris Marquardt (of Tips from the Top Floor
fame) and John Arnold, host of Photowalkthrough.Location
The workshop will take place at the Camp & Furnace and at the famous Albert Dock
that goes back to 1846, making it the first non-combustible warehouse system in the world. Camp & Furnace is located right in the Baltic Triangle
, a historic city central area that is just a stone's throw away from Albert Dock and within walking distance to many of the other famous Liverpool landmarks.
Oh, by the way, if you are old enough to remember the song Ferry Across The Mersey
, we will be shooting right next to it!
