Studio Lighting Courses

The IWDIG is pleased to promote the Studio Lighting Courses as shown below. Many of our photographers have already attended one or more of these courses and they come highly recommended,

The course was great, I learnt a lot and was impressed by how professional both the trainer and model were. I’m looking forward to a refresher course later in the year, thanks.

If you’ve always wanted to try studio photography, learn about lighting or just take the chance to shoot a professional model why not give one of these courses a go. To check-out Charlotte’s professional model portfolio just click the picture below.

This was the basis of Gary Early’s session of Evaluating Photographs and HDR. Continue Reading »

Back to Basics with a DSLR

All seats were taken for Gary Early’s presentation on back to basics in using a digital SLR camera.

Gary is keen to encourage photographers in their learning and understanding of their digital cameras, and the computer software they use to enable them to make the absolute most of their digital images. This involves good practice not only when taking images, but in preparing the camera before taking images, and getting into a regular routine when downloading, sorting, and storing images.

Referring quickly back to computer software, in addition to any evening’s presentation, Gary is always generous in his knowledge of computer software, and makes a point of stating what is currently available and letting everyone know about packages he has recently purchased and provides regular reviews about them.

As is usually the case during Gary’s sessions, he packs in so much, takes time to listen to members’ questions and to explain things as fully as possible, invariably the evening has disappeared and there’s still more he would have liked to have gone through.

It would take too much space to write here all the details of the evening, but to give you an idea, below are just a few of the things covered: Continue Reading »
