Coastal photography 1 - Donaghadee harbour, County Down - 1pm - 2 hours
Donaghadee is a well loved and popular spot, photographed many times by many people. But I hope to begin to show you how to at least try to take a fresh approach with the familiar.
If you have a wide-angle lens (18 or 24mm is good) bring it along. Bring a telephoto too if you have one.
Take your time. There’s no need to take hundreds of shots at this session, it’s all about taking the time to see the subject.

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!
Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.
What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!
The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.
Street Photography Meet up - St Anne's Square - 11am - 2 hours
Street photography can be addictive, but also frustrating at times! When there’s so much going on in front of your camera, it can be hard to pick out what to focus on and shoot.
In this session we’ll be looking at how to separate a good photo story from the noise, and how to improve the photos you take when out and about with your camera.
A session looking at capturing everyday life in an urban setting and using photography for storytelling. Suitable for complete beginners.
This is a session for beginners, intending to cover the basics with the aim to get you all shooting on a manual setting.
We will cover Aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed, and get you understanding exposure and using your histogram.
Walking around the Botanic gardens, we will also cover some composition techniques.
This is a very hands-on class, so you’ll have plenty of time to practice your new skills on the day and take lots of shots!
