Describe this as an interactive group painting from life, indoors and out. The idea is to paint together from life, something in which I firmly believe and the opportunity to discuss painting approaches and results. That means outside for landscapes, inside for still life in bad weather. Outdoor equipment has to be considered, so we will start inside. Once outside, I will have little view finders and my practical colour wheel on hand. The rest will develop informally.
I can help the process along showing why painting from life is so important, and focus on the painting process from concept to shapes, value, colour, paint, and edges. My role would be to help coordinate activity and start art discussions
The environment will be casual and we will finish off each day with a show and tell. These can be a lot of fun and a good learning forum.
Outline David Bishop’s Photography Workshop
June 22 -9:00 a.m until…..
1. An introduction to wildlife and nature photography.
2. Expose, compose and focus. Avoiding common problems and learning how to " read the shot ". " Auto is not always right !
3. How to recognize, capture and prepare, and finally take home that elusive National Geo " cover shot ".
4. Action photography. An in depth look at the tricks of the trade. How to enhance your speed, and be prepared for the shot before it happens. Stop fumbling with controls. Missing that "elusive moment" will be a thing of the past.
5. The "Magic of Light". It changes the way others see your image and how to use it to your advantage. How to make the most of the " Golden Hours ," and why you should keep shooting even after they're gone.
6. Equipment. What you really need to bring, and what you should leave at home. Which lenses you'll keep reaching for and the others " you won't ". Matching equipment to your type of photography, and how to set it up.
7. Simple editing and how it can help bring your image to life. Keeping it real and minimizing the change. Cropping and composition. Shadows and Highlights. Slightly sharpened and done! How not to over do it !
8. An open forum to answer those questions you've been itching to ask.
9. Relocate to the outdoors, weather permitting for some " How To " and hands on shooting.
