The Steel Rooms Photo Hub

Do you want to improve your photographs?

These monthly sessions are for those with little or no experience with a camera but who may wish to improve their image composition skills, become more confident with camera functions or be interested in extending their photography further.

Monthly sessions will be based around introducing ‘how to make a better photograph’ leading to a discussion on basic functions of the camera. All will be introduced at a pace to suit.

You need a digital format camera and could even start with a good quality phone camera such as an iPhone or android with a view to buying a digital camera. 

Content Guide that will be covered throughout the year:

Intro – you not the camera

Composition skills – rules of thumb

Still life – playing with lights

Out and About  – Landscapes, street, nature

Difficult light conditions

Portrait basics.

Cost: £12.50 per person or book 3 consecutive sessions and get them at £10 each * see terms and conditions below

Dates and Times:

October 27         12.45pm – 2.45pm

November 24   2pm – 4pm  (2pm – 3pm will be out and about, back in the workshop room from 3pm)

A bit about Simon:

Simon Gaddes – Quiet Life Photos

Simon has been involved with photography as a hobby for much of his life with his photography business developing in the last 3 years. His self taught photographic style, capturing predominantly natural world subjects, aims to make the subject shine without over-processing or camera ‘trickery’. A single camera and lens is used only, Simon’s little back to basics revolt with images manipulated post production using only simple ‘dark room’ style techniques. Time is spent making the image not at home in front of a computer screen. You can read more about Simon and see some of his work on his website Quiet Life Photos.

Simon currently offers formal evening sessions in Sheffield and Nottinghamshire and 1:1 workshop experiences throughout the East Midlands, South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. His works are available online and displayed at many of the region’s art fairs and markets.
