"Last Wednesday I had the absolute pleasure of attending LIFE:CAPTURED, a photography and memory keeping workshop in Sydney's Waterloo. The day was hosted by blogger and brainiac Pink Ronnie along with photographer extraordinaire Trish from Tealily Photography.
As we sipped hot tea from vintage china, Trish took us through the manual functions on our cameras and uncovered some of those 'lighting' secrets that seem to be so tightly held by the professionals. While I have admired Trish's work online for some time, it was SO lovely to see her in action - shooting from multiple angles and capturing misty golden light, all with a sure but quiet humility.
After a delicious catered lunch, Ronnie enlightened us on all things Lightroom, photo organising and memory keeping. I'll be honest, this was so very useful for a scatter hatter like me. Ronnie has a beautiful brain. It's crisp and organised and logical and alert. She communicates ideas clearly, slowly, and precisely. I came away with a greatly enhanced understanding of how to archive and organise my images. Ronnie even made it seem easy, breaking each week and project into manageable compartments.
If you have an interest in photography on any level, you'll really want to hop along. Trish and Ronnie make the perfect team and, together, they teach a truly comprehensive course covering the basics of shooting on manual, photo editing, organising, and archiving. "
