Photography Course

Creative Portraiture for Beginners –  The Photographers Workshop are running the next Creative Portraiture for Beginners course on Tuesday 16th of this month, and currently have three places remaining.  Learning how to pose the models/subjects and put them at their ease, how to make the most of your environment, and how composition can make the difference between a simple snap and a work of art – are all important elements covered on this course.  Students are encouraged to share ideas with each other in order to develop their own creative skills.  Ideally, for the class to have a good mix of ideas we try to run each course with a full complement of six students so we are currently offering the remaining three places on the course at a discounted rate to Club members – usual cost £95.00 – reduced to £85.00 to encourage uptake.

In order to receive the discount any Club members who are interested in attending the course should telephone 01322 669371 and quote BROM-CPB160413 to book their place.  Jane Parten, Course Coordinator, The Photographers Workshops, jp@photographersworkshops, 07875 137473, 01322 669371
