Getting To Know Your Camera
For all newcomers and those wanting a refresher session, this photography workshop looks at how a camera works, the optics and basic controls, types of camera, lenses, equipment etc. Not all cameras are the same but the basic controls are. This workshop will also be appropriate for those who use digital or film cameras and iPads. Although this session looks at some of the technical aspects Brian will illustrate and explain things simply and clearly so it is understood by everyone.
Photographic Tips and Techniques
We look at the various techniques using the basic camera controls discussed earlier, to get different effects, incl Depth of Field (the amount of the picture in focus), using Filters, Exposure Tips, etc. All richly illustrated with examples of Brian’s own images from his world travels.
Putting Theory into Practice
During the Workshop we will go into Dillington’s stunning grounds for a photo session to enable you to take some shots of the architecture, sculpture, plants and surroundings and practice the tips and techniques we have learned.
To get the maximum benefit from these workshops you should be familiar with the basic controls of your camera. Please bring your camera, lenses, a notebook and pen to the course, plus appropriate outdoor gear/footwear.

I came to Somerset to talk about Socrates and his search for the good life. And in many ways I found it incarnated in Dillington House. Here there is a love of beauty and truth. To find a sympathetic venue with an exquisitely rich history, open to all and encouraging debate, creativity and a passion for life is exactly the kind of thing that would have made Socrates smile. I can't wait to come back.
