What's On Moreton Bay | Large-format photography workshop with Shea…

Large-format photography workshop with Shea Kirk

June 22nd at 10:00am
from $20.00

This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of contemporary photographic portraiture with an in-depth look at Shea’s personal practice, sharing his passion as you are guided through the steps to create a portrait.

Focusing on the slow and intentional process inherent to large format photography, learn about what is involved – from loading film to making the final exposure – as Shea breaks down the physics and how to work with these cameras into simple steps.

Suitable for all levels of knowledge and experience, from those who have never picked up a camera before to those who already shoot film and are curious about making the jump to large format.

All materials and tea and coffee are provided.

This is a full-day workshop, please bring a packed lunch to eat in our courtyard or enjoy a short stroll to cafes nearby.
