DAW and PAW registration is upon us… If you are looking at images of your work and wishing they were better, this workshop may just be in time.  The day long session (Nb – two different workshops for 2D and 3D work) covers the basics of getting the most out of your digital camera as well as practical tips for creating good quality images for web and print publicity with a minimum of equipment, and much of that DIY.  You should be able to walk away with images of a couple of pieces of your work too.
Workshop covers core camera skills, including White Balance, Managing Exposure, and understanding the relationship between pixels and reproduction, and a practical session allowing you to get the best of whatever equipment you have and some very simple lighting tricks.  Suitable for pretty much any kind of digital camera from compact to DSLR.  The 3D workshop will develop ideas around lighting, background, managing focus, etc.
You will need to bring your own camera and a couple of pieces of work to practice on – workshop is restricted to 6 students, so there should be time to shoot some of your work for real in the afternoon.  It would be useful to know what you plan to bring – media and size, etc.  If you have a tripod, bring it – otherwise I will have a couple available.  You can guess that life will be much easier if work is not behind glass….
We will be using the new teaching space at Sandy Hill Studios behind the Boilerhouse Gallery – it’s basic and functional, but at this time of year you might want to wear something warm 🙂
Please email for more information – and don’t forget to charge your camera batteries….

Sandyhill Workshops, Sandyhill Lane, Corfe Castle, BH20 5JF


Some workshops run from the Boilerhouse Gallery, part of the Sandy Hills Studios set up.

Approaching Corfe from Wareham on A351, take the first left after the Studland turning, just before the road climbs to the village square.  Go under the railway bridge and turn immediately right along the track leading to the workshops and gallery – look out for the signs.   Coming from Swanage, the turning will be on your right at the bottom of the hill as you drop down from the village square.  We have limited parking at the gallery for customers.  On foot, the easiest access is over the footbridge at Corfe Castle station.
