Jayne had a Cheshire School of Photography voucher bought for her by her husband. Previously he had bought her a new camera, a Canon EOS 1300D and now she wanted to ‘get to grips’ with it.
We always insist on having a chat with our delegates before they attend our one to one course. This allows us to create a personalised itinerary for them. After our initial chat it was obvious that Jayne wanted to simply know how to take great pics with the minimum of fuss. Not everyone wants to know about f-stops, shutter speed & depth of field.Jayne had mentioned that she was going on a ‘dream holiday’ the following week, so we decided that we would use Chester as our project, we would walk around Chester as if we were on holiday, taking pictures as we walk, talk and learn about photography. This is what we did, interspersed with coffee breaks and lunch at Carluccios, this was our ‘photo walk’.
It was a lovely bright, crisp and frosty morning when we began our photo walk, so we took full advantage of what mother nature was giving us. Bearing in mind what Jayne wanted to learn we kept the camera on automatic, however she had full control because we taught her how to over ride the focus and the exposure.A few weeks later I met up with Jayne for coffee at the Grosvenor, Chester. She wanted to show me the pictures from her holiday, they were brilliant. Her new interest in photography had energised her into taking lots of pictures while away, instead of sun lounging she was busy taking pics !
All of the pictures shown here were taken by Jayne, who was a complete novice, well done Jayne, great pictures.
