You will also examine which type of camera best meets a photographers needs, with a look at lenses, focal length, aperture, vibration control and value for money.The full day workshop will be on location at Portmeirion and will include three elements, with lunch at one of the villages cafes.

Portmeirion village will provide the perfect setting for the practical session. You will use the beautiful surroundings to take landscape, seascape, still life and architectural pictures.  All under the watchful eye of Richard.

At the end of the day the images will be downloaded to enjoy and discuss in a non competitive environment. There will also be a demonstration of how Photoshop can be used to enhance and improve results, using examples taken on the day.
