Otago Landscape Photography
SOUTH ISLAND NEW ZEALAND
THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR ALL LEVELS OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
March 15-20 2018
Mike and Jackie want to share their favourite photographic destinations in Otago-Southland. This tour /workshop is designed to make you think about the photographs you make and why. Each day you will be asked to set yourself specific goals or Jackie and Mike will set them for you.
Time is spent debriefing and reflecting on what makes a ‘good’ photograph and why.
EACH DAY WE WILL BE ON A JOURNEY TO DISCOVER LIGHT, COLOUR, TEXTURE AND CHARACTER. PARTICULAR CARE WILL BE TAKEN IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHIC THEMES.
THe Critique Process
The downloading and critique sessions are the foundation of the learning process. We discuss composition, design and celebrate all your photographic efforts. Our aim is for you to leave the workshop satiated: knowing more about photography but what’s more important, knowing more about yourself and what photography means to you.
The final day will be a printmaking workshop where Jackie will help you edit and print one of your images. Using her EIZO Monitor and Canon imagePROGRAF Pro 1000 printer.
A selection of edited images will also become part of the QCCP Otago 2017 book. Copyright of the images remains with the photographers at all times.
If you don’t have your own laptop please let us know, we can download a selection of images direct to our computer for the feedback sessions.
In all our tours /workshops we concentrate on developing your camera skills and craft. It’s important to know how you camera works and how to get the most out if it. Our aim is to help you develop your own personal photographic aesthetics so you have an opinion on what makes a 'good' photograph to you and why.
We share with you the reasons why and how we make photographs and encourage you to play and practice the skills we share.
With digital photography it is so easy to make many many images. We like to help you to know what images to keep and then how to edit and print them.
For professional photographers wanting to enter images made while on the tour / workshop this is allowable as long as you were not under instruction at the time of capture and the idea of the image was your own.
