Abstract Expressionism Photography Meetup - Media City - 11am - 2 hours
If you get 12 people to take a photograph of the same object, you can almost guarantee they will all be individually different and subjective to the photographers eye. This session is about taking the ordinary and throwing it into a new dimension of perspective.
Focusing on patterns and stylistic manual techniques, we are going to be completely breaking down the fundamentals of what makes an image interesting so the more open minded you are, the richer the experience you will take from this.
This class is aimed at all ability levels!

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.

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.

Warren was great - informative and gave a good few tips on long exposure. Difficult to critique the session as it was my first one so dont know how these are supposed to operate bit the group became quite spread out so was difficult.for Warren to get round everyone. That said, we covered night shots, light trials and water reflections in a 2 hour period so enjoyed it and will book up another session in the New Year

Really enjoyed it. Warren is an encouraging and enthusiastic teacher. And the other participants were so nice too. I think the restricted size of the group made it easier to do the street photography too. Too many and we may not have been able to get as many shots.

The session was reschedule to the Sunday due to bad weather which was a great call! We were introduced to the monochrome setting on the camera and then head off to explore NQ with a few tasks to complete. The tasks were quite varied allowing us to get pretty creative. Warren was very polite and encouraging, and gave us really useful tips in regards to camera settings. I learned a lot from this course and my photos look great! In regards to safety, I felt quite safe with >1m distance maintained for most of the course.
