Photography at Lyndendale


Jill Harrison, photographer and freelance writer, is running a series of photography workshops at Lyndendale Gallery and I was lucky enough to attend one last weekend. I came away much better informed and now I can start putting the theory into practice.

Jill explained that the word photography comes from two ancient Greek words photo for light and graph meaning drawing – “Drawing with light”.

Some of the topics covered were:

  • focussing
  • picture composition
  • negative space
  • horizons
  • foreground
  • background
  • leading lines
  • repetition and patterns
  • framing and so much more.

Luckily Jill is running a follow on workshop next Sunday where we can learn the practical applications.
