Here’s a testimonial from Geoff Heaton who took a recent photography workshop (he is pictured above centre)
“Even though I have been taking photographs for 30 years, there is always something new to learn. I was lucky enough to do a portrait class with Tania Niwa who was able to make me much more aware of what factors make a good photograph a great photograph such as balance, light, posture, don’t do’s, framing your shot, use of foreground and background, ramping up your ISO to match the light and even entertaining your model. Tania has shown me how to think about the photograph.
Now, I think I can go out there and use this ‘fab’ knowledge as a workflow and see how to frame the photograph up before I click that shutter button. This course was really useful.
