A very successful photography workshop

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

On Saturday 16th March, wedding photographer Jamie McDine led a photography masterclass at Matravers School in Westbury. The workshop participants were a perfect mixture of ages, from 14, up to those in their 60s, and mixture of abilities - from hobby photographers, to those studying the subject for GCSE and others who had work published.

The main aim of the workshop was to get all participants to understand more about how their camera works, so that they are able to take better photographs.  So once the automatic settings were switched off, Jamie led the group through a number of hands on exercises to manually set their own ISO, aperture and shutter speed settings. The results - beautiful and more artistic compositions, with a much better exposure and consideration of light and colour.

The final exercise was to photograph a model in a studio environment - the participants had to set everything manually on their camera and apply all the skills they had learned throughout the day.

The workshop was so popular that the next one is already organised for Sunday 14th April 2013. There are a handful of places still available, so if you would like to book a place, please contact Beverley Jessop: bjessop@matravers.wilts.sch.uk
The workshop costs just £35 and runs from 10-3pm. All abilities and ages are welcome.

Wedding season 2013 has begun!

Saturday, March 9, 2013

The wedding season has officially begun as Jackie photographed the beautiful wedding of Lorna and Shaun yesterday in Gastard. We're looking forward to edit their photographs in the next couple of weeks, so by the time they return from honeymoon their disc of hundreds of photos will be waiting for them on the doorstep.

We can't wait to film and photograph all the exciting weddings ahead!
