Colour & Light 101 – Childrens Photography Workshop
This workshop is divided into 2 clear shooting session – mid afternoon when the sun is high and then low sun shooting into golden hour. Over the 5 hours we discussed how to look for beautiful light and environmental backdrops at a new shoot location. The aim of my course is to illustrate how you can deliver well lit shots, no matter the weather, and how it can be achieved without using lots of additional equipment, which can be difficult to carry and to use with fast moving children.

The image of the girl in the white dress (center) was taken right at the end of the day as a shaft of light appeared between the trees. I have shared my before and after edit of this image if you would like to see an example in this blog post here.

As the light became softer towards the end of the second session we moved into the long grass. This was one of my favourite images as the light was beautifully soft. Mum hadn’t planned to be in any of the photos but as she was so incredibly photogenic we managed to talk her into it. We had a great selection of models, both boys and girls and a mix of experienced models and kids new to having their photographs taken.
You can see examples of the images taken by the course attendees below and also some thoughts on how they found they day itself. The support and learning continues after the course itself in a private Facebook group where I share my editing techniques
“The day was great- I learned new ways of manipulating natural light, got to practise things in real life that I had only read about, picked Nina’s brains about business questions, and met lots of other lovely photographers. And that was just on the day- the advice and feedback on editing after the course from Nina and input from other course members has been brilliant. All in all, a highly recommended Childrens Photography Workshop” – Claire Metcalfe Photography www.claremetcalfephotography.co.uk
“I learnt loads in the first five minutes of Nina speaking. She imparted so much knowledge and know-how I want to go back and do it again to make sure I didn’t miss anything! I’ve gained huge amounts of confidence and can see the improvement in my work straight away. Nina is approachable and willing to answer all questions. The models were gorgeous and I had a fantastic time. Money very well spent! Thank you Nina” www.sianpeters.com
” The most valuable part for me was being shown practically how to position subjects, and how even an inch either way can make a huge difference. That and how to make the most of cloudy, flat light. I’ve also picked up some great hints and tips on post production from the group since the Childrens Photography Workshop” Rachel Powell www.lightmonkeyphotography.co.uk.
“I can safely say that Nina’s workshop was one of the best investment I made this year for taking my photography to the next level. I learned invaluable tips on how to position my clients, where to position them depending of the time of day and different light conditions. I would definitely recommend it to any photographers “.

“I found Nina’s course good fun and inspiring. What I like most about it is that the training didn’t just stop on the day – lots of information followed after the course too”. Justine Burton www.bertiesphotography.com.
