Digital Photogaphy Midweek Course at Renvyle House Hotel
Digital Photogaphy Midweek Course at Renvyle House Hotel

The Digital Photography Course (Digital Memories) at Renvyle House was a great success. It was a beginners workshop to teach the fundamentals of photography. The course was conducted by professional photographer Aoife Herriott and she explained the basic camera controls and how to use them to best effect along with tips for landscape and composition.

There were field trips, classes giving tips on how to make a good exposure, shooting technique and what effects you can get when you 'break the rules'. In the evenings there was a workshop about how you can edit images and improve your results without harming the integrity of ones images.
All in all a very rewarding mid-week break for those who partook and we hope to run one again in September. In the meantime, here are some images taken over the course of the break.
