Avid readers of the blog will know that I was due to run a “Creative Eye” photographic workshop at the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) HQ in Bath. Well, it’s happened and was very enjoyable!
We had a full group of 10, and they had a good range of photographic skill and experience. All came with a willingness to learn, and have fun while they did it. Here they are, photographed during the “creative use of camera shake” exercise…
Fenton House, the RPS HQ, has an excellent range of spaces, and lots of photographic opportunities. One of the training course exercises involved looking for textures and patterns, and we were spoilt for choice.
This shot of a Venetian blind is an optical illusion. It is rectangular, with parallel sides, but your eyes keep wanting to make the diagonal lines straighter, so the image edges start to look crooked. Try looking at it for a minute!
One of the exercises involved the group taking a “creative group photo”; this was hilarious. They arranged themselves on the floor of Fenton House’s exhibition space, and let their feet do the talking.
All in all I, and more importantly the delegates, thought the “Creative Eye” workshop went really well. We are planning to run this photographic workshop with the RPS again next year, so keep your eyes on the RPS website, or on our Training and Treks pages. http://www.lifestylephotos.co.uk/training.htm
