Black and White Photography

Saturday the 2nd of July
Northern Quarter and Ancoats - 2pm - 2 hours
Before colour film, there was only monochrome and in this session we'll be focusing on just that. Taking away the distractions of bright flowers and blue skies, we'll be shifting our attention towards shadows, textures and contrasting tones. By the end of this session, expect to be expertly capturing the world in black and white.

Outdoor Portraiture

Outdoor Portraiture

Saturday the 6th of August
Northern Quarter and Ancoats - 11am - 2 hours
What makes the difference between a happy snap and a portrait? We will be exploring techniques to photograph people using formal, casual and candid posing. Natural light creates a softer and more aesthetically complimentary look and in this session we will be practicing how to harness daylight using a reflector sheet. Learning how to control natural light in unpredictable circumstances is a key skill in a photographer's arsenal. This session will have you ready to take on any event in any weather!

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Your experience doesn’t stop once the class ends - you can also share your photos in the Manchester Photography Facebook Group
