About The Day
10am - approx 4.30pm
We will start with a chat over a cuppa to decide which styles of card you would most like to shoot with each of our festive subjects: funny and cute, or sleek and stylish - it's up to you!
Then we will spend the morning building our seasonal sets, demonstrating how to light them appropriately and photographing the owls and harvest mice, ensuring that your settings are exactly right for the effects you wish to create with each one.
Over lunch we will review your morning's shots and choose your favourites.
These are the images we will continue to work on during the afternoon, importing them into Lightroom and Photoshop to add the post processing and graphic elements that will turn a nice shot into a one-of-a-kind seasonal greeting that your friends, family, colleagues and clients will treasure!

A personal note from Trai
"The safety of my guests has always been uppermost in my mind, and I have given much thought to appropriate social distancing measures for my workshops. Though these will be mandatory for the foreseeable future, you can still be assured of a wonderfully intimate experience with the wildlife we encounter.
Thank you in advance for your adherence to the measures below, and for keeping us all safe while we continue to explore new places and enjoy our photography!"

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT OUR COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
"At this time of social distancing, and the wearing of face masks when at a distance of 1 metre or less, it is necessary to continue with as many pastimes as we can.
Having experienced one of your Photographic Workshops I believe my safety and the safety of the whole group was well managed and at no time did I consider myself at risk.
I consider the workshop met all necessary controls to maintain a safe environment. At the same time, interaction was still possible to provide the necessary coaching along with questions and answers.
Overall, the session was without doubt a valuable experience. I learnt some very useful tips and the day gave me further confidence to tackle tricky lighting conditions in the future. Looking forward to other workshops!"

A DSLR, mirrorless or bridge camera is ideal for this workshop. Any shorter length lens such as a 24-70mm, 70-200mm, or anything within that range is perfect, but we believe that we can get the best out of whatever gear you have - so bring whatever you have! We have participants with compact cameras and the latest smartphones, and they have left with new skills and great shots. Contact Trai before the workshop and she will let you in on some useful apps that will allow you to access the manual settings of the latest smartphone cameras.
Don't forget to bring spare memory cards and batteries/charger - there's a lot to shoot here!
A tripod/monopod is optional
This workshop will take place indoors in a heated studio, but please bring layers if you feel the heat or cold!

Tea, coffee and water provided throughout the day.
