This workshop is led by award winning architect and photographer Aisling McCoy http://www.aislingmccoy.com and is designed to give you the technical knowledge and practical skills to make better pictures of locations.
During the course of the workshop you will get a technical understanding of how your camera works in manual and semi-auto mode, an overview of equipment available, and ways of both evaluating your work and finding solutions to common problems encountered when documenting locations.
The course is workshop based so you will get the chance to put theory to practice and evaluate the results in different locations and conditions over the day – dense urban space, parkland landscape and low light conditions.
