Movement, Fast and Slow – Photography Skills

Wednesday 20 March 2024

 

Photography Workshops London, Richmond | Jackie Rado Photography

This is a dynamic workshop designed to boost your photographic agility.

Develop your ability to respond quickly to a variety of situations! We look at how to capture wildlife in action by mastering the nuance of freezing vs blurring the action for a specific outcome. We examine a range of faster shutter speeds required to create sharpness and precision. We also explore slower shutter speeds and the settings required for images with intentional blur for creative effect.

Focal length plays a key role in shutter speeds for all purposes and we look at the role of different lens choices when capturing movement. We also examine shooting modes for a variety of scenarios as well as custom functions and camera settings which enable you to respond with speed and agility.

This workshop is ideal for all levels of photography and is an excellent stepping-stone if you have some basic knowledge of your camera. The day is a mixture of classroom learning and outdoor hands-on practice, with plenty of time for 1-2-1 tuition. Content details are tailored to the specific interests and experience of the course attendees on the day.

Please bring your camera with fully charged batteries and formatted memory cards. A standard mid-range zoom lens is perfect and bring a longer lens if you have one.  

From 10 am to 4 pm at the Barnes Wetland Centre. Booking Essential.
