After much planning and a few nerves last weekend I finally opened the doors to my home to host two Photography Workshops for some really wonderful ladies. While I have presented at various workshops in recent years this was the first series I have done where I self hosted and co-ordinated everything and to my delight everything ran to plan – not that I necessarily doubted it wouldn’t go that way but when you just have to turn up and present your stress levels are a little less than when you have to do it all.
My beautiful participants where nothing but eager and delightful and have since sent me the most lovely emails telling me how amazing their felt after leaving. Feeling very proud I am! During the day not only did we learn the important steps of moving your camera from auto to manual and all that goes into it, we also had loads of hands on photography time were we photographed everything from cakes, desserts, bottles, props, the garden, lunch and so much more. We talked backdrops and props, learnt the basics of lightroom and photoshop plus I gave some simple easy short cut tips that I use when editing my images.
While I didn’t capture too many images on the day here are a few that I did take. Everyone went home with some beautifully presented notes that Nicole from Pretty and Print helped me to make look professional, as well as a sweet note book and pen from Kikki K. We enjoyed delicious sweet tarts and savoury pies from the amazing Anna at The Floury Baker and I prepared my current favourite salad – roasted beetroot, sweet potato and baby spinach for everyone to enjoy!
I am looking at hosting some more workshops after we have made it through the festive season and kids are back at school. If you are interested in going on the notification list please drop me an email and I will let you know when they have been scheduled.
