The course will be an online photography meet up in six session. It’s designed to be a get together in a small group online with a task to do in between. This will be a photographic task to encourage you to get out and about wherever you can between the six sessions. The projects also cater for those who are unable to leave their home.

The aim is to have a great time looking at photos, talking about them and taking them.

Starting Thursday 7th July until 11th August

All that is required is an interest in photography and any camera or phone. Participants need to commit to both dates and times. You do also need the ability to download your pictures to a computer and then upload them to wetransfer.com which is a straightforward process.

The session will be hosted by Vanessa Miles, a Devon based professional photographer and director of Well Image.

Living Options Devon is working across the South West to ensure that people with disabilities and / or Deaf people (who use British Sign Language) can live the life they choose. www.livingoptions.org

We will be discussing what makes a good picture and exploring a few rules of good composition and when it’s best to break these! Also, how to ‘see’ good natural lighting for a photograph and how best to utilise this.

You will be expected to upload your photos by wetransfer.com or email them to Vanessa by noon, the day before the next session.

Vanessa will be displaying these images to the group to see how you have all got on. Much of the fun is to see how others have interpreted the ‘brief’ and to hear their experiences. We welcome positive feedback and encouragement whatever the level of photography.

This will be a fun, informal group for those who may not have participated in something like this before and want to dip their toe in the water!

Limited number of places available so please secure your ticket soon.
