Ok so this coming Sunday (27th March) I’m going to be in the studio for a day long ‘tester’ of a new workshop I’m putting together covering both Photography & Photoshop…
I’ll be joined by 8 other photographers, all of varying experience and skill levels who have been invited along to play the part of ‘students’ for the day so they themselves will get hands on with the shooting and editing. Most importantly though they’re there to give brutal, honest feedback (*gulp*) on what we cover: what works, what doesn’t work, what should and shouldn’t be included and so on.
When we ‘go live’ my intention is to have a workshop that’s basically split in two with the first half of the day being spent setting up the lighting and shooting to achieve a specific look and then the second half of the day spent editing the images to get the kind of results you see above covering compositing techniques, portrait retouching and all the kind of stuff that you see me posting here on the blog. What I don’t want is for this to be just another workshop on Photography, which is why I’m going through this ‘tester’ process and also where you can maybe help me out…
Can you help?
I think it’s fair to say for the photographers out there that most if not all of us have been along to a workshop at some point…some good and some maybe not so good; but what was it that made it so? If you were coming along to this new workshop what kind of images and techniques would you really like to get ‘hands on’ with and see being covered from start to finish?
What I really like the idea of is coming along to a workshop knowing exactly what you’re going to be able to achieve by the end of the day. So, if it was up to you and looking over the kind of work I do, what would you want it to be?
We’re all going to have our own thoughts on what the workshop should include and how it should run so with that being said if I could ask you to post your thoughts either in the comments section below, on Facebook, Twitter or email me directly (email@example.com) that would be a massive help, thanks.
Oh, and I’ll be sure to post what we got up to at this Sunday’s ‘tester’ at some point next week,
