SCAP Photography Winter Season 2023
Tutor: Tiu Makkonen@Street Level.
SCAP linked up with Street Level Photoworks who provided two very educational photography workshops considering various aspects of photography.
Across two 3 hour workshops, participants first learned about the history and genres of photography as an art form, followed by a thorough lesson in camera handling and technical shooting notes. During the second workshop, we put all this theory to the test by first viewing the Futureproof 2022 exhibition at Street Level, followed by a photowalk around Glasgow city centre and the Christmas market. We rounded the day off by returning to Street Level to review and chat about the images we’d just taken, and everything learned so far.
The group learnt and discussed:
How to use a DSLR to take photos, and technical digital photography basics
How to use the different settings on a digital camera to create images that match your creative vision
‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ - how to read meaning from photographs
Using photography to illustrate text pieces, or using text to inspire the creation of a photograph
Using colour, composition, texture and focus to change the mood of your photo
