Tailored to your exact needs.
Our aim is to provide you with the most personal level of photography tuition available at the djb photography school. With our personalised, private photography walk-shops we work around your schedule and your build on your personal photography knowledge. You can ask our professional photography mentors as many questions as you like without the worry of “keeping up” with the group – or in some cases, being held up by the group. Here, we welcome beginner and intermediate level photographers to join us.
Manual mode & and controlling the light.
Night photography, working in low light, light trails, long exposures, using your tripod.
Landscape photography. Professional panoramas, understanding composition and light.
Street photography. Cityscapes & people photography.
RAW vs JPEG, post production, Adobe Lightroom and the Art of Authenticity.
Learning post production is literally a LIFE CHANGING experience. This is where I started to realise that “developing” your photographs is still INTEGRAL with digital photography. Except now I can do it on my laptop… while I’m at the beach… sipping on pina coladas.
“But I always get it right in camera” I hear you say. In the 1930s, Ansel Adams was also getting it right in camera. But what was he doing before you see the final shot?
Dodging, burning, changing contrast with contrast filters, then taking a final copy of the negative so he can reproduce the photograph. He was a master at developing images in the dark room. Nothing has changed with digital photography, except now we’re able to access the entire power of the darkroom with one affordable piece of software. Adobe Lightroom.
This is our flagship workshop, and has been taken by students all across the world. It’s online, can be completed in one day and you’ll have access for an entire year to re-educate yourself whenever you need to. Read more about it here, and watch what we can do with Lightroom below:
