Selective Colour Photography - The Custard Factory at 11am
Colour is an important component in setting a mood of a photograph so we’ll be exploring the impact of certain colours, and producing a series of images using a single colour.
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!
Photography is all about playing with light, so Christmas can provide some great opportunities to really get creative! We’ll be exploring the local festive lights under the guidance of the professional photography instructor.

It was a good event. Good advice from the instructor. However, i thought it was street photography and we would be walking around the city. Instead we stayed on the bridge, but learnt to use fast shutter speeds so it was still ok. 4/5 by Victoria Parkes 1-10-2018
