A weekend of introductory photography workshops. Get to grips with your camera's technical features, make the most of post-production software and empower your photographic voice.

A full day workshop that will give you a grounding in analogue photography. In times when we are bombarded with technology, it’s good to take some time out and try something different. From calotypes and salt prints to daguerreotypes and silk prints, professional practitioner Libby Nightingale will give you an overview and history of traditional methods, film types and processing in this hands-on workshop. 

A full day workshop that will ground you in the basics of post-production editing software Adobe Photoshop. Regardless of your expertise in photography, it is rare to achieve such a perfect image straight from the camera that post-production editing can be bypassed. Generally, images will need to be altered in size and adjusted for exposure, tone and print. Professional photographer David Nightingale talks you through the core principals of Photoshop with practical examples; from optimising your RAW files to basic masking and layers.
