Suzanna Clarke Workshop in France!


The award winning photographer is to give only one workshop this year in France. The venue is the famous Chateau Lalinde and the day is expected to be a sell out!


Join Suzanna Clarke for a day as we take some intriguing images of the picturesque region we live in. Learn how to create images that are both works of art and communicate the spirit of place. Our aim is to take a series of wonderful shots that may be exhibited in a group art show.


This one day workshop will cover:

-- Composition: ways of seeing beyond the obvious. Breaking down a scene into details and framing it in interesting ways.
--- Light: creating atmosphere by using different types of light. How to both plan for effect and also make the best of existing lighting conditions.
-- Portraiture: Candids and posed portraits that help to reveal the character of the subject.
-- Movement: learn the tricky skill of panning to give an added sense of excitement and how to create unusual pictures using time exposure.
You will need: --a digital camera that has manual settings;
--beg or borrow (but don't steal) a small tripod if you don't have
--to download pictures, a laptop would be handy if you have one.
--comfortable clothing and walking shoes

--The day will start at 07:30am at the Chateau Lalinde and include a coffee and croissant breakfast
--a working lunch will be served on the Chateau terrace
--and at the end of the day everyone will convene to study the day's work, get feedback and enjoy a glass of wine.
--There will be theory as well as field work done during the day -- and the group will be doing some walking as well as going out (transport provided) on location shooting


Each participant will also have one enlarged and framed photograph, chosen from their work by Suzanna and yourself, displayed at a small exhibition in Lalinde (venue to be announced) -- whether you want this photograph made available to be sold, or keep it for yourself, will be up to you!
