Pictures do their own story telling and our memories are precious, usually contained in a shoebox of old photographs holding our moments in time. Why not learn how to pass them on safely for posterity in a photobook?

This course will explain the techniques and give guidelines in copying the original photographs to an electronic source eg. Laptop/IPad. It will be shown how the photographs can be enhanced and demonstrated how they can be laid out artistically, with a storyline text, securing them in a hardback album to withstand the ravages of time and enable future generations to look back and see family in their own place and time.

Street photography can mean different things to different people – but at heart, it is about capturing the spirit, characters and situations of everyday life on the streets, whether that’s where you live, or in far-flung climes. Often, there is a focus on the candid, capturing things as they are without too much emphasis on posing the shot. This can be a lot of fun, but also poses challenges – do you feel comfortable taking such images, or do you feel like you are intruding? And how do you capture a candid shot, whilst still creating a pleasing and well-structured image? There is, of course, no single answer…but on this course we will explore a variety of tools and strategies which can form the basis of good, enjoyable and memorable street photography.
