Photography Workshop Portmagee

Last Saturday five photgraphy students and I set out for Portmagee to capture some landscapes but mainly details in the picturesque setting of the little harbour.
After camera checks and an introduction talk about composition and other things we set up our tripods and cameras and started taking pictures.
The day was dry and bright, fishermen went about their business and I was able to teach my students some skills with their cameras and tips about composition, light and shadow, colours and shapes and other basic photography know how.
In the afternoon we worked a bit on how to file the images and slight improvements with computer software to get the best possible preparation for printing.
We all enjoyed the day and I am looking forward to repeat this workshop, we are planning a trip to the Skelligs for this summer among other places.
