July Workshops at Gallery of Photography, Dublin

Introduction to Black and White Photography
Our Introduction to Black and White Photography course is a one day intensive course led by an experienced creative professional. The course will teach you about camera functions, choosing the correct type and speed of film, shutter speeds, and working under differing lighting conditions and introduce you to the basics of film processing and printing techniques. Each participant shares an enlarger with one other person. This ensures that you get plenty of hands-on experience while also giving you the opportunity to learn from your fellow students.

Alternatives to conventional framing such as diabond and acrylic mounting will also be explained.

Introduction to Digital Photography – Absolute Beginners
This one-day, hands-on workshop, led by international photographer Tristan Hutchinson, will introduce the absolute beginner to the world of Digital Photography. It is aimed at, and most beneficial for, those who have no previous experience in digital photography. There is an option to further develop your skills and confidence with a follow-on 3 day photography workshop.

This workshop will provide participants with a basic grounding in DSLR photography. The workshop will help you understand
– your camera equipment (lenses, sensor and memory cards)
– basic camera functions (camera menus, automatic and manual shooting modes)
– exposure (how your ISO, shutter speeds and aperture interact with each other)

All of this is taught with the students own equipment in mind. You will be given the chance to shoot in the streets around the gallery, followed by a review of your work with the course tutor.

Dates: Saturday 29th July 2017
Times: From 12:00 p.m to 5:30 p.m
