Training Overview 3 Steps
Processing (Photoshop etc.)
Conns Cameras (Dublin)
Welcome to the Dynamic Photography Training Centre. From here you decide what your training needs are. Please contact then us and we will look after the rest.
All our training is specially built to suit your needs and requirements.
Step 1: Learning the Camera.
Lasting just one full day (or half days) we first go though the basic camera settings to get you up and running with your camera.
We will then.
Step 2: Processing your Images
This Training is dynamically set up to entirely suit your needs.....
Step 3: Advanced Photography skills and fun on our Weekend Workshops.
Here at Dynamic Photography we are proud to offer you a unique training and fun photographic opportunity.
1. Low light at the "Clifden Arts Festival Parade"
2. Sports shoot track-side at the "Omey Beach Races"
3. Shoot from an unstable platform , anticipate compositions and work fast and furious at the "Roundstone Regatta"
So whatever your skill level or desired skill level is, we have the training for you.
Contact us now as places (esp. in workshops) are kept low so to ensure personal tuition is given.
You wouldn't buy and drive a car without at least some knowledge or experience of driving...Probably not ! Well it's the same with a camera.
Even if you drove an automatic car you would still need some training, and again this is the same for cameras.
Any reasonable camera can take beautiful pictures and the quality of the images will depend on the users skill level and knowledge.
But without some instruction you might as well be driving a car without a license. It will all go wrong eventually.
My philosophy in training is that I teach you what you need to know to drive your photography we dont go under the hood and get to technical.
At Dynamic Photography we can take you on your first step to making beautiful images or refresh your forgotten lessons with a Full or Half Day with us . Let us build your confidence behind the camera.
After initial contact and some information gathering training is designed and built specifically for you and aimed towards the subjects you want to shoot.
When complete we will then.
Training can be held either in the Greater Dublin , Galway or Clifden areas.
Subjects to include.
And for the more experienced
Using Flash **
how to capture what you see
* This will be a very quick demo on how I manage and correct hundreds of images , I will also use some of todays images and correct them. For a more detailed lessons using your own images a separate course is recommended. See the Processing Images tab above for more details. Taking both classes as a package will be heavily discounted.
** I do like to cover this subject over a weekend workshop where we cover all aspects of working in low lighting conditions. See "Clifden Arts Week Parade" for more details.
Step 2 Post processing
With Digital all images coming out of our cameras will need some adjustments before you publish them, that is if you want to be considered a good photographer.
So your second step in photographic training is Post Processing which is a necessary evil in these days of digital photography.
In designing the correct Post Processing training for you there are a number of considerations we have to make first.
Your level of skill with the PC/ tablet/ laptop.
The software you will be using.
The lengths you are prepared to go to in processing an image.
For Example: A basic starter for someone with reasonable PC skills (for instance while using one of the free post processing tools ) is to get their images to a "Normalised Level" with good contrast and colour . This should take a full day.
Once that is decided we can design and build a learning path for you to follow at your own pace while supporting you all the way through.
Starting with organization right through to publishing your images either on-line or on print we will be there every step of the way for you.
Call or contact us and see what we can do for you.
Step 3 Workshops
And finally for the 3rd step we have our Weekend Workshops.
Each of our unique workshops focus on a set of skills and then put attendees into real world situations where you will shoot like a pro, because you will be one, handing over a copy of your images after the event for submission to local publications.
The 3 Workshops are
Itineraries are set up to match the attendees current skills, abilities and requirements. Typically we meet up on Friday evening and part company Sunday afternoon (or on the Monday of Bank holidays) and fill in the rest with Photography related material.
Follow up support provided at no extra charge
With no control over the weather or other circumstances that may postpone or cancel events I will have a plan B.
Workshops are relaxed affairs but we move and work at a fast pace so the weekend is full on.
Attendees should have a good working knowledge of their camera gear i.e. they should be able to adjust their camera settings, swap lenses quickly and easily.
