Walden in Focus
‘Walden In Focus’ Street Photography Workshop And Exhibition
Saturday 21st July, 9.15am – 5pm
Course Aims and Itinerary
The ‘Walden In Focus’ one-day workshop is a photography course with a difference. At the end of the course attendees will be invited to submit their work for selection to an exclusive two-week exhibition. The aim of both the workshop and the exhibition is to celebrate the people of Saffron Walden. It is targeted at anyone who knows where the ‘on’ switch is on their camera, but wants to improve both their control over the camera and their techniques to successful shooting. ‘
