Visual Story Telling Photography Workshop
29 June @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm BST£95.00
Join us and our tutor, Jane, for a photography workshop with a difference. Essentially visual story telling is communicating a story through one or more images. You look at the image(s) and you can see why the photographer took the photograph(s), what they wanted to say and how they felt.
Leo Tolstoy defines storytelling in this wonderful quote:
“It should be utterly infectious, where it infects the viewer with feelings he or she has lived through, so that other people are infected in turn by these experiences.”
If you want to move beyond snapshots and create images that really connect with people then you will love this workshop! It doesn’t require expensive cameras and lenses. It’s about you seeing the story and capturing it and it’s not about the equipment you’re using.
A bit more detail
No experience is necessary as our talented tutor, Jane, will be on hand to guide you every step of the way. We allow plenty of time for our students to create their work.
