#LightsCameraCurrys | Bloggers Workshop

Hello everyone!
Although I’ve not been blogging for long, I was asked to an event sponsored by Currys where I was able to learn more about my DSLR camera and be able to use it without the Auto setting on.
Me, Kathy and Cat in height order like professionals…
On a beautiful Sunday morning, a bunch of us bloggers gathered in Brighton to attend #LightsCameraCurrys run by top photographer Dade Freeman. This was my first bloggers event so I was a tad nervous. The majority of us hadn’t met before but even from the beginning it was very easy to get on with everyone I talked to.
After a lesson in the technical side of things, which felt like my AS photography course rolled into one day and a lot easier to understand, we ventured out into the sweltering sun to put our new found skills into practice. 
Disclaimer: None of these photos have been edited. These are purely taken in manual so that the settings are correct for the scene. 
I was particularly proud of this shot. I used an incredibly fast shutter speed so that I could capture this seagull mid flight. Most of us had a lot of seagull shots as they were just everywhere!
This shot was done using objects as frames. The railings along the seafront make great frames. I love how it separates the difference sections of the photo. The sky is perfectly cut off from the sea, and the sea is perfectly cut off from the beach. I also love how it looks like the people are tiny and standing on the middle railing. 
This shot came out slightly too bright but I love the composition. This is fellow blogger Allie, posing on this half boat thing on the seafront.
Another seagull shot. I love how this was captured so quickly that you can see the motions lines coming from its tail feathers through the clouds, or so it seems.
I took many more photos but these were the ones I was happiest with. 
The experience was very positive and  I learned a lot, as well as meeting lots of new people.
If you want to find out more about the day and blogs from the other girls, then search twitter and instagram for #lightscameracurrys.

It’s safe to say that I can now use my camera a lot more than I could before and I’m no longer in my ‘auto safety net’.
Peace and love…

      I feel our class excelled at photographing seagulls! Maybe we should give up fashion blogging and take up bird blogging!
