Photographing Ceramics and Glass

Following on from last year’s Photography course,
we have arranged 2 Saturday workshops
May 12th and June 9th 10 am – 4pm
Newquay Adult Education Centre
with photographer Graham Barrett
Cost per day £17.50 (including some printing of images)

This course is for people familiar with the basic functions of their digital camera and who now wish to explore the fundamentals of photography in order to photograph their work to best advantage. Those who attend the second day will need to be competent computer users especially in the area of file management but need not be familiar with either Photoshop or Paintshop Pro.

May 12th Day 1 Photography - will cover composition, lighting and camera techniques; white balance, exposure compensation and
Depth of Field - book by end of April

June 9th Day 2 Digital photo manipulation - will cover basic workspace familiarity and tool options for either Photoshop or Paintshop Pro; file formats for web and print; cropping, cloning and sharpening; adjustment of hue and saturation, brightness and contrast; the addition of borders and frames. Printing and printer settings. – book by end of May

You will need to bring a digital camera, download lead, CD
or memory stick, plus on Day 1, 4 –5 pieces of work to photograph.

It is hoped to do some photography on the beach on Day 1, if weather is fine. You may attend either or both of these workshops. If you just attend the second on manipulating images then you must bring digital images to work on. Booking priority will be given to CCGG members – enrol by dates above, after that the courses will be open to others.
