Happy New Year everyone!
I love New Year because it’s a time for new beginnings, an opportunity to reset for the New Year and assess what’s worked (photography training) and perhaps more importantly, what hasn’t worked so well in the previous twelve months!
In December I relaunched my YouTube channel successfully, producing twelve videos on DxO PhotoLab. Support from the photographic community has been immense and I’m both grateful and pleased that people find the content so useful.
I will be expanding the content of the channel in the New Year to include Camera and Shooting techniques and some more advanced subjects including infrared photography, astro-photography and landscape panoramas.
In 2022 I introduced the Ultimate Guide Series which has been consistently popular, this year I’m adding more photography training in the shape of a virtual course aimed at photographers at the beginning of their landscape photography journey and 1-2-1 Zoom sessions aimed at improving photographers who would like to discuss their work with a professional.
For the last twelve months, I’ve been working on some new photography teaching for 2024 that will be launched this Spring.
Introduction to Landscape Photography
This course aims to inspire new photographers and offer a few things to intermediate level photographers too.
The course will have two flavours, one featuring DxO PhotoLab and the Nik Collection, the other featuring Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
Introduction to Landscape Photography will be available at a discounted price of €35 for everyone who has signed up to my mailing list. I’ve done a considerable amount of market research, and I can safely say this represents the best value for money of any course I’ve looked at.
Content will include –
- What kit do you need – Tripod, Camera, Lens
- What Software do you need?
- The triumvirate of settings
- Shutter Speed
- Camera Modes
- Focusing & Backfocus
- Camera Settings
- Processing with Lightroom/ACR – White Balance, Contrast,
- Processing with DxO PhotoLab
The courses will include projects to put all the information into practice and there will be an opportunity to have a one hour, 1-2-1 session with me at a discounted price to get feedback on the project work and discuss your ambitions and how you plan to realise them.
1-2-1 Virtual Sessions
Feedback is one of the best and most constructive ways to get out of your comfort zone and learn.
If you despair of the keyboard warriors infesting social media, these photography training sessions are private, constructive and customised to your specific needs. The sessions were initially built around virtual training sessions for Photoshop, Lightroom, DxO, and Nik Collection, but the feedback I have had suggests there are other topics that people would find helpful.
- DxO PhotoLab
- Nik Collection
- Getting started as a Pro Photographer
- Portfolio Review
- Building a Photography Website
The idea here is that these will be “pick my brains” sessions – you tell me what you want to discuss and I’ll make sure you have a focused one hour session customised to your specific requirements.
That might be processing one of your pictures in the software of your choice, discussing different approaches to processing the same picture, discussing how you might improve the composition or all of the above.
All sessions will be done using Zoom, unless you happen to live in Granada in which case. you’re more than welcome to have a face to face session instead!
I’m working towards offering Photography workshops in Granada city and photography trips to the mountains and valleys around Granada.
