A Photography Workshop

Workshops are always fun whether I am attending one or I am conducting one. This past week I had the opportunity to conduct a workshop in a corporate setting. Mostly my workshops have been out doors. Though it was the same thing I do always it was a slightly different experience. It was more structured and more focused than the workshops in the field.

The workshop was mainly geared towards beginning photographers and was broken down into two parts. The first part was about composition and thinking about the image pressing the shutter. This was followed by a small task for those attending the session to use the knowledge they had gained and take photos using these composition guides. Everyone went about clicking things they could find in office. This was followed by a session on different types of photographic gear and how one could take advantage of these.  

The session also helps photographic gear heads like me to realize the motto of  David duChemin  "Gear is great, vision is better." It was amazing to see some of the composition and imagery people got with their cell phone cameras!

Though I was mostly just directing and helping other photographers on I was able to take a couple of photographs here they are. Enjoy
