Urban Photography - Hockley Jewellery Quarter at 11am
Urban photography is all about exploring your local town or city, and capturing the smaller, often grittier details that are often overlooked. Join us on this photo walk around the back streets of the jewellery quarter of Birmingham, as we look at how to photograph a mix of architecture, industrial details and street scenes.

We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Birmingham. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

Join the Birmingham Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.
