About the event

Puzzled about photography basics? Never understood the point of the rules you've learnt? Wonder why it has to be so complicated

Join Tom as he takes you on a tour of techniques that will shed a new light of understanding on photography. This will illuminate the way you photograph as he will beautifully simplify complicated concepts for the most practical outcomes.

Today’s camera technology has made photography easier than ever … and made getting satisfying results harder than ever. By de-coupling technique from effort, modern photography helps you to take photos, but can get in the way of making photos.

Tom will show how a return to basics – escaping from the long shadows of film and early digital photography – will brings back your fire for photography. You will discover how to take advantage of the new tools and powerful features in modern cameras to liberate your personal creativity.

He will talk about light as emotion. Composition as wholeness. Colour as separation. Exposure as emotion.

Tom’s talk will be free of any rules, but full of tips and well-tried ’trade secrets’. It’s sure to be inspiring for any beginner to intermediate photographer. Bring your notebooks (or tablets, if you’re not old-school) to grab lots of ideas you can put immediately into practice. No new gear or extra cost needed!

Suitable for any camera user, irrespective of brand or quality.

You will have plenty of time to ask questions.
