Street Photography Meetup

Street Photography Meetup

Saturday the 18th of December
Northern Quarter - 10am-12pm - 2 Hours
Street photography can be addictive, but also frustrating at times! When there’s so much going on in front of your camera, it can be hard to pick out what to focus on and shoot. In this session we’ll be looking at how to separate a good photo story from the noise, and how to improve the photos you take when out and about with your camera.

Christmas Markets and The City At Night Class

Christmas Markets and The City At Night Class

Saturday the 18th of December
Manchester City Centre - 3pm-6pm - 3 hours
In this 3 hour seminar, we'll start by exploring the city's Christmas markets and capturing festive street photographs using a fast shutter speed and a keen eye for detail. As it starts to get darker, we'll then shift our focus towards the lights and capturing stylistic night shots of the festivities. This is a special seminar in which we will cover a lot of different styles and techniques with a christmas theme!

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
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

Warren gave us an informative afternoon and offered a lot of ideas for new ways of looking at reflections in the city including buildings and water. He helped with technical questions and made suggestions for camera settings. Individual creativity was expected and Warren pushed me out of my comfort zone to take better photos.

I think that Warren is a great teacher. Very encouraging and inclusive to all levels. Can't wait till it gets back to the original format that I have never experienced but realise I am luckily right now with so few of us. Nice to meet other people with the same interests too.
