Smartphone Business Bespoke
Approx – two and half hours
Usually at locale of business/or pre arranged location
New Shoots create fabulous bespoke Smartphone workshops for small to medium groups either on site at a specific location reflecting the needs of a business or in our usual location at Borough Market.
We are professional photographers who want to share our knowledge in small friendly groups. We will teach the basics, both technical and compositional so that you and your staff leave feeling confident and inspired.
The most important element for anyone wanting to take better photographs is knowing and trusting your equipment and the same is true of a smartphone and knowing what it can do. If you require members of your team to take photographs on their smartphones and learn how to get more out of their smartphone camera, discover its potential and learn the fundamentals of photography; this is will be a great the course for your business. We will help participants take more control of the technical aspects of their smartphone camera so they can be in control of the creative side, giving them more confidence to take the pictures that they want, the way they want! And we can tailor what they learn to be relevant to the specific company.
This is also great for team building, or networking in smaller groups too.
This is an outdoor, fully practical workshop in and around your locale or if you prefer our usual location Southwark Cathedral and Borough Market, where you will be shown different techniques and can practice your new skills, learning to achieve the following:
We will start by going through a few basics with our camera phones.
Tips on focusing and exposure
Composition, using perspective
Dealing with converging verticals
Finding the right background for your shots.
How to compose a great shot - using the rules and breaking them
How to be creative with depth of field
How to take control of natural light
How to edit your shots to enhance them
How long is the Workshop:
We usually expect a workshop to last two and half hours, initially beginning with the introductory part of the session, then proceeding to the practical part. We generally start at 10.30am – anticipating to finish at 1pm, but of course start times are flexible and the length of the workshop can vary depending on individual requirements of different companies.
Your smartphone; fully charged (a portable phone charger if you have one can be useful)
