Wight Photo breaks are creating unique courses that cater for the individual as well as the group. The facilities and the time made available for teaching are unrivalled on the Island. A small group of like minded enthusiasts, a course size of six, ensures each delegate receives dedicated tuition as appropriate. Delegates are also able to choose their lunch, included in the course fees, on the first day from an excellent menu of home cooked meals provided by Dimbola Lodge.
Although we take photography seriously, we never forget you want an enjoyable break too! The emphasis is on having a relaxing time, while learning or developing your techniques. We aim to teach you new skills that enable you to go home and create unique photographic images that you’ll be proud of.
All our Digital Photography/Photoshop courses are designed with the photographer in mind, and are fine-tuned to clearly present the information you need to know to master the software and enhance your photography. The unique Wight Photo Breaks eBook is essential reading and a great refresher for everything learned over the duration of the course and beyond.
The Lightroom course is designed for those looking for an easier way to deal with most of their digital images including keywording, storage and development. Lightroom was built from the ground up for digital photographers by Adobe and provides an intuitive interface to enable you to accomplish many of your routine tasks such as organizing and editing your digital files as well as getting them ready for output including slideshows, web usage, and printing.
The tutorials were well-paced and detailed without being too technical.
Its been refreshing to see how quick one can retouch and catalogue images.
Excellent, many thanks, looking forward to part 2
If you are interested in any form of photographic training please contact us. We will soon be launching additional courses in the following areas: Photoshop Elements a Photographer’s View; Introduction to Digital Photography; Flash Lighting and Things you need to know about Wedding Photography but were afraid to ask!
We look forward to hearing from you and having the opportunity to discuss your requirements.
