Salford Quays, Media City and the Lowry are an amazing place to spend time with the camera, if you’ve never been it’s well worth a trip down. I was there last Friday, meeting with Lee, Eif and Paul from the Welshot team, and we managed to get some great shots to promote the next mcfade/welshot workshop. We’re taking this workshop to a new level, where we not only have a session of photography and coaching from me and the team, but also after lunch the delegates will be learning some new skills with their HDR processing.
It’s a pretty exciting workshop to run, a location that’s fantastic, a subject I love and hopefully showing people how to avoid making cartoon images from their HDR’s!
I thought the best way to approach it would be to challenge the delegates to “recreate” 10 mcfade shots, giving them a handout with the photos on and a few notes – then on the shoot, they have some goals to aim for. It’ll also give us come common shots to work on in the processing session.
So here are the shots I’ll be showing people, well challenging people, to photograph – then show them how I did it.
It’s all a bit like that “Masked Magician” show where they give away all the secrets!
