These two amazingly enjoyable and informative 2 day courses enable you to learn best practice photography techniques and how to actually prepare and print your images - all in one weekend! With a choice of two Victorian themed venues and the attendance of the ever popular "Ragged Victorians" period actor group, no photography stone is left unturned.
Join our groups to visit the Didcot Railway Living Museum in Oxfordshire and take photographs of the Victorian actors, trains, surroundings and historic heritage or why not try the amazing Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, West Midlands showing British heritage and our industrial revolution in its most original form - atmospheric industrial grime, impressive machinery and domestic hardship.
PermaJet Print Academy is teaming up with the ever-popular "Ragged Victorians" period actor group to provide a unique weekend of photography and learning. Photographers of all levels can experience the day out focusing on British transport and industrial heritage dating back to the Victorian era - coupled with the realism of the period actors, the on-site photography opportunities are endless.
The format for the days for both courses is similar...
Day one gives unprecedented access to locations that will allow unhindered photography whilst learning new skills and techniques. Working with the very experienced Ragged Victorian actor group, you will have numerous photo opportunites in areas during the day from which the general public are excluded. Experience a mix of set scenes with and without period actors, outdoors and indoors, along with industrial architecture and heritage all set in these wonderful locations.
Didcot Steam Railway Museum (one overnight hotel stay included) - after a full day of photography, you will retire to a pre-booked nearby hotel where the evening will be a relaxed affair with informal photography chat.
Black Country Museum (non-residential, own hotel must be booked if required) - make your way home or to your selected hotel and meet up with the group in the morning again at Smethwick Photo Society's venue for day two.
Day two of your weekend allows you to learn everything you need to know to produce exhibition quality inkjet prints of your previous day's images. Experienced tutors, Leigh Preston FRPS and Pete Johnson LRPS take you through topics such as:
- Monitor and printer colour management
- File size and image quality;
- Getting the best from your digital files;
- Adjustment layers;
- Sharpening & Interpolation;
- Using and converting RAW files;
- Installing and using ICC profiles for consistent colour and quality;
- Test printing & Advanced black and white features for specialist monochrome printing and the use of PermaJet papers.
Take advantage of the incredible PermaJet printer, paper and ink deals, exclusively available to all delegates!
Each day will last from around 10.00am - 4.30pm, including buffet lunch and refreshments. The Didcot Steam Railway price also includes the cost of an overnight hotel stay on the Saturday evening for one person (dinner and breakfast not included). The Black Country Museum is non-residential but does include an on-site lunch on both days.
These fabulous two day events are priced competitively and the limited places sell very quickly. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
