I had the pleasure of hosting a photography workshop with the SEE class which Nortec runs, this week. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed mentoring the students.
The day consisted of exploring basic composition, which includes the lesson of the Rule of Thirds and looking at different ways to take the photo. It is what everyone should understand when learning photography. I suggested not to stand at eye level to get the shot but to move around, squat down, lie down and look at how many different ways there are to capture an image.
The other aspect of the day was a Photo Safari. The group chose some interesting words and phrases such as triangle, texture and eyes. The object was to take photos that represent those things, in a creative way. The Photo Safari challenged the students and the results were amazing. For example Karen found a Dragon’s eye in a paper bark tree which made a fantastic photograph.
The day was very enjoyable and I really liked working with the class and I am looking forward to working with them in the future.
