Photography is an on-going learning process. I read books, magazines and online resources. I have learned to use Lightroom and Photoshop through watching online tutorials (those by Julianne Kost through Adobe are great) and by practising and trying things out. I still have heaps that I’d like to know how to do. I initially did a couple of photography courses with Bob Litchfield through UWA extension, which were very educational and inspiring. Through belonging to WAPF affiliated camera clubs, I have learnt so much from the judges’ critique on competition nights, from workshops, especially on weekends away, and from other members. Photographers form a very helpful and sharing community.
More recently, I have started doing judging myself. I did a course with WAPJA
(WA Photographic Judges Association) and am now an accredited judge, mostly writing critiques for the country clubs in WA that are too far away from Perth to be able to have in-person judging.
Since moving to Bridgetown and joining the local camera club, I have been sharing things I have learnt. Mostly this has been through workshops for the club members. I have also run a couple of “Get Off Auto” courses aimed at club members and the general public.
Please contact me if you are interested in workshops, either general photography, post-processing or nature photography tips.
