Tonight at the Welshot portfolio building session it is all about the props, from clothes to furniture, from backgrounds to accessories. Our model will be sporting a number of different looks with at least two costume/outfit changes. You will be learning how to positron your furniture, props, accessories and lighting to compliment your model and give you the best possible composition for your photograph. You will be using studio mains, and off camera flash lighting techniques in the studio itself as well as using the buildings features to capture your portrait photos for your portfolio.
Were taking advantage of the ‘still early’ darker evenings and getting out and about with our cameras to capture Llandudno (Town, Promenade, Pier (from Promenade) and the sea in low-light conditions. At this Welshot Photographic Academy Evening, based in Llandudno, we will be shooting long exposures – from the Prom to the Pier itself. We will also be capturing traffic trails, grade one and two listed building all lit up and learning how to show your environment around you in one perfect image.
Flat-lay is a popular genre of photography for those who like to be creative, post on various social media platforms or just want to spend some time making an creating imaginative, impactful images. Knolling, a form of flat-lay but using specific props that link together (like kitchen cutlery, makeup or tools) to form an attractive, methodical, often symmetrical in some way, photograph. At this Welshot Flat-lay photography day, held at the Welshot Creative Hub in Llandudno we will be spending the day learning the techniques, both compositionally and lighting to make and create images you can be proud to showcase. Using a wide variety of props, from flowers to food, from kitchen utensils to stationery, from toys to tools – this day will have it all for you, your imagination and your camera.
Seascapes and Sunsets in Llandudno – from piers to promenades, from architecture to artistic angles, from North Shore to West Shore, this Welshot Roving Photographic Academy Evening will have it all for those who like to be out and about with their camera capturing the beauty of the world around them. Llandudno, Queen of the Resorts has it all for the photographer – historic piers, photogenic promenades lined on one side with a wide open expanse of the Llandudno North Shore, to the Victorian listed buildings that will provide you with the features of the colourful architecture. After photographing the pier and bay, we will then move to West Shore and there you will find rock pools and sandy beaches with a backdrop of the Welsh hills and Anglesey in distance – from which the sun will set behind, hopefully giving us a colourful sunset and magnificent light.

Hashtag #WelshotIsBack seems a very apt way to title this very first blog written by Welshot Academy Members to celebrate being able to meet up with our cameras after months of lockdown… As life returns to a more relative sense of normality, Welshot are preparing to open up once again for photographic workshops and events in a slow and cautious manner. Hence the three ‘practice run-throughs’ – AKA… A Welshot Photographic Reunion. Since March 2020, when the pandemic hit, Welshot has continued to help motivate, inspire and support those who love photography during these isolating months, all brought together using hashtags #LearnWithWelshot and #WelshotOnline but nothing quite compares to being able to hold our photographic workshops and events in real life.
Llandudno, the perfect location for a Welshot photo-walk with a twist. Grab you cameras, we are off on a treasure hunt with a difference. Known as the Queen of the Welsh Resorts, the ever-popular seaside town of Llandudo in North Wales, is a hive of history and memories with connections to Lewis Carroll who wrote Alice in Wonderland. Llandudno, home to a mining settlement turned thriving tourist hotspot and is famous for its Victorian architecture and stunning scenery and seaside promenade make for a perfect location for the photographer who wants to get out and about with their camera.
