Excellent Photography Bootcamp

Last weekend a few of us went off to Cheryl Johnson’s Photography Bootcamp held in Saffron Walden. Armed with my trusty Canon 450D SLR and a bag of lenses I started on a nuge learning curve on photography. What a brilliant weekend it was. A great bunch of friendly people made the weekend spectacular.
A few individuals wanted to know about digital scrapbooking so I created the top layout with a photo of Lainey taken on Friday evening. I thought her daughters would like her made into a fairy for fun!
The next photo was shot with a very patient and stunning young model as we learned how to use studio lighting and set up. I only wish I had similar photos of my own children as they were growing up. I am going to get this one printed for my photography portfolio.


I have hundreds of photos from the weekend and will post them eventually. This is just a taster of the sort of skills we learned. I was so impressed I signed up for the next online course Painting with Light the Sequel on CJ’s blog HERE if you are interested.
