moutain gorilla holidays PHOTOGRAPHY & WRITING BY IAN WOOD
The idea behind these days is to spend some time with a small group of people (max 4) developing our photography skills in a creative and supportive environment. By the end of the day you'll have an excellent understanding of all aspects of your camera along with how to process images on a computer.
We'll also play about with several creative effects that will inspire you to take photos with a new vision. Each day starts at my home the in Sussex countryside, close to Brighton. Over a coffee we'll go through the principle functions of your camera and explore what you personally want to get out of the day. I firmly believe that the best way to really understand your camera and the creative process is to head out and take photos. With this in mind we'll head to a few locations in Sussex where we'll have the opportunity to take a number of different types of images. Later on we'll return home and simplify the process of how to deal with your batch of photos on a computer. This will include importing, storing, editing and printing. I use Lightroom and Photoshop but I'm also familiar with a number of other programs if you're more comfortable with these.
I like these days to be good fun and we'll take a short break in the middle of the day to have a snack together. I'm happy to discuss any aspects of the creative process along with advice if you'd like to see your photos published. I'll be running 3 or 4 of these workshops in Spring and Summer 2013 ...

I'm also more than happy to arrange one-on-one tuition where we can tailor the day to meet your specific needs.
