Photography Workshop (3-6pm)

Join us for a photography workshop with our tutor who will guide you through various aspects of taking photos. During the workshop you will learn:

* How to interpret a brief
* A structure approach to document a space
* Composition
* Depth of field
* How to use natural lighting
* The impact of using different view points

After a short lecture and briefing you will be given a guided tour of Left Bank Leeds and asked to take photos within the space or the surrounding areas, in response to the theme of space and place. You will then have the opportunity to review your work as part of a group discussion led by the tutor if you want to.

You don’t need any fancy kit just bring a camera or camera phone with you.

Please note there are four workshops so please ensure you book tickets online via Eventbrite for the session you wish to attend.
