Photo Workshop in KL : End June


Update 2000 GMT 010608 : I have set up a separate website for all matters relating to the workshops here or see links list on right sidebar.

Update
2200 GMT 310509 : To all that responded, thanks for your interest shown, I never thought I would get such response within 12 hours of posting workshop details. As to those people that responded to my posting at photokaki.com I don't know what happened but that post has been deleted, please contact me here.



I will notify all once the dates and venue are fixed in a couple of weeks time. It would most likely be Saturday afternoons, and location will be in KL or Taman Tun area. Because of the smallish group, if anyone really cannot make the dates pls do let me know early so I can offer it to another person, to be fair, as I am not taking any deposit or confirmation monies. We now have 6 persons, so I am needing say another 2 or 3 persons.


To all photo-enthusiasts,

I will be in KL at the end of June to mid July and was hoping to give an introductory workshop to a small group of 6 - 8 people over 2 full afternoons.

This is a tentative programme :

Who is it for?

Do you feel like a little guidance in developing your photography skills now that you have all the fancy new equipment?
Are you at lost as to what to photograph?
Do you want to build on your existing portfolio?
Do you chimp?
Are you confident in photographing people in public?
Do you want to create a visual style of your own instead of just 'reproducing'

postcards images?
Do you photograph from your heart or from your head?

1st Afternoon


We start out the tough way with the basics in photography. Here you will discover what photography means to you, what it really is about, and you will get a totally new viewpoint to work out from. We will look at how to deconstruct and analyse images.
- and you will get an assignment!

2nd Afternoon


Follow-up on 1st session and questions answered.
We will touch on composition, color temperature, light, working with available light, discovering your potential to see.


Valuable final product


- you will challenge yourself to make fine photographs.

- learn how to work on project-led images.

- you can control the light.

- develop your own signature style.

- you will obtain much better results in your pictures.

- you will find out which camera is suited for your style.

Costs

It costs absolutely nothing! This is an introductory workshop, it will help me gauge the level of interest, competency and dedication to learn for a future more comprehensive program. ie. you are my guinea pigs! There will be some preparation though from your side, as learning and teaching is a two-way process.

Post me a comment if you are interested. There will only be about 6 - 8 places.

What level of photography do you expect? I am very interested. I have messed around with my dSLR a little bit but yearn to get some formal training.

Hi there wilsonc, thanks for responding. The workshop is open for all 'levels'. As long you have a vision and competent enough to handle your camera. For this program I wouldn't be wanting to teach about camera handling skills etc i.e. very basic settings like aperture and shutter, ISOs, choice of lenses etc. Its more cerebral, in that I want participants to think more, and shoot less, but shoot better.

I've got 2 for you then. :) Thanks for setting this up.

Dear All,

I have set up a new website purely for the workshop initiative so that all participants may keep updated quickly and it also permits feedback through direct postings there instead of emailing me. Please bookmark it at www.slphotoworks.blogspot.com

Many thanks

Steven
