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:
- picture composition
- negative space
- 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.
Watch next week for the next instalment and maybe some great photographs …
Au revoir and a bientot
