More Exciting New Techniques: photo workshop – Kim Westerskov Workshop

For more images, check out Kim’s latest newsletter. It is ready to download here [Download PDF]

Sunday 31st October 9.00 am – 5.00 pm

Is your photography in a bit of a rut?
Would you like to create some new and different “Wow!” photos?
Would you like some clever new ideas to get “Honours” at your camera club?
Want to try some new techniques?
Want to lift your photography to a new level?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this is the workshop I’ve designed for you. In fact, I’ve been working on it for several years now: researching &, looking for new “Wow!”
ideas that you might like. And then experimenting, testing the ideas and their potential for a workshop.

We’ll explore the exciting possibilities of using mirrors [broken and unbroken], crystal glass balls, soap bubbles, effervescence, bokeh from fairy lights, and many more ideas. All you need to do is bring yourself and your camera. I’ve already got the fairy lights, prepared the broken mirrors [not as easy as it sounds] and gathered together the other stuff we’ll need: the crystal glass balls [flown in from USA], a variety of mirrors [from local op shops and emporiums], special soap for bubbles [also flown in from USA], effervescence [from my local supermarket], feathers, and more.
This workshop will be very different from my other workshops. We’ll spend some time looking
at a variety of good and great new ideas and techniques for you, and then – much earlier in the
day than usual – I’ll set up the equipment and you’ll bring out your cameras and get
photographing. You’ll go home with your memory card full of exciting new photos.
Promise!

Date: Saturday 31st October. 9.00am – 5.00pm.
Cost: Full course fee [which includes tuition,
hand-outs & yummy catering $295 – or $245 for Early Birds [if you register by 21st October]. Fulltime students with ID $145.
Have a good look at the photos in the workshop section of my newsletter: I’ll be showing you how they were achieved, and how they can be achieved by you.
