Seeing the Light – a WORKSHOP on Technique and Artistry


In partnership with the beautiful Ayr Sailean accommodation, I am pleased to announce a photographic workshop that is aimed at demystifying the photographic process.

The journey will be a tutored, live in, 2 day workshop.  Lee Griffith Photography (that’s me) will be on hand to lead and advise on all things photographic.

There is a reason we take pictures – we see or are moved by something.  We want to record that moment.

Have you ever had trouble translating what you saw in your minds eye, and turning that vision into that fantastic image?

Aimed at the beginner to intermediate Digital SLR user, this course will explain how your camera works, and how to use it!

One of the most important factors in photography is the ability to ‘see light’.  This course will show you how to ‘see light’ and how it affects the image!

The course with cover topics including:

  • Learn how to use the 3 most important DSLR features CORRECTLY – Aperture – Shutter – Focus.
  • Composition and how to use it to your advantage.
  • Which lens and why.
  • Exposure, light and it’s effect on the picture.
  • Ways to tell a story through pictures.
  • Travel to nearby beautiful locations to take images and put what we are learning into practice.
  • Editing in Lightroom.
  • Ask away – your Digital SLR questions answered.
