Composition & Focal Length

Tuesday 21 May 2024

 

Photography Workshops London, Richmond | Jackie Rado Photography

Composition is the placement and arrangement of elements within the frame. A striking image simplifies the cluttered world and creates visual order – communicating a powerful message and guiding the viewer along a clear and intentional path.

In this course we explore compositional guidelines and look at examples to help translate what we saw in our mind’s eye into a striking photographic image.

We examine the role of focus and sharpness in photography, and how to use our camera settings to enhance the overall impact of the image.

We also look at camera lenses and how to capture both sweeping impressions and finer details using focal length to reveal inspiring new perspectives.

Capturing the natural world at this time of year, with avian courtship and the arrival of chicks and young, can be challenging but also hugely rewarding! The course takes advantage of the beautiful setting, using the wildlife and nature around us as our subjects, including a variety of birds and wildlife.

 

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

Capturing the Decisive Moment

Tuesday 19 June 2024

 

Photography Workshops London, Richmond | Jackie Rado Photography

Capturing a decisive moment is the perfect blend of form and timing!

In photography we are looking to capture the essence of a subject in a way which resonates and brings it to life. When a perfect moment is captured, the viewer is immediately drawn into the image and pauses to gaze more closely.

Capturing the decisive moment is relevant to all genres of photography, but none more so than wildlife photography where one fraction of a second can be fundamentally different to the next. Micro adjustments and alterations make all the difference between taking an unremarkable image and capturing a truly perfect moment.

In this workshop we examine the specific details, from anticipation and timing, to composition and how to frame your subject, to managing the technical details and settings on your camera in order to capture the perfect moment.

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