Dublin Autumn colours, stunning minimal trees, deer in the Pheonix Park and some new architectural positions.

The workshop has 3 parts:

Part 1 – The Weekend Shoot

Shooting Dublin Bay and City. Decisions on locations will be based on conditions so there is no set itinerary. Where possible, Peter will bring you on the road less traveled and some of the less photographed scenes from Dublin Salt. Plus we will be out hunting some Autumn colours, and also shooting some city locations. Peter has tonnes of experience with shooting Dublin so the idea is to max out opportunities and teach you guys why we have gone to a specific location. Sunrise is at 8, sunset is at 6.30. There will be breaks factored in throughout the day for eating, a bit of downtime, etc. We will be shooting sunrise and sunset both days with some daytime shooting mixed in.

Part 2 – Editing

So let’s get the weekends work edited. 2 webinars will take place the following week with the other workshop participants. Peter will edit your images live online and we will have a Q and A. You will easily be able to log in and, interact with Peter and watch the edit. Peter will send you back the fully edited TIFF’S. 3 Full Edits per participant. Peter will edit a cross-reference of people’s work to provide a roadmap through the full edit of the weekend for everyone. 2 webinars, 2 hours each 7 – 9pm the following week. Full Live recording provided of these webinars.

Part 3 – Individual Review and Critique

Another week later, we will book in a 30-minute slot with each participant individually. The idea is that you have a 1 – 2 weeks to work on your edits from the weekend, with the support of the webinar from the previous week, and then we can have an online meeting and see what you have got right or wrong.

The weekend becomes a complete process.

– Planning, decision making for what locations and when to go
– On locations shooting, creative and technical instruction
– Webinar of edits form the shoots you’ve just been on
– Individual critique session to complete the process.
