A few weeks ago I was invited to Millennium's Glasgow Photography Workshop with Dreghorn Photography as part of the Commonwealth Games #toastofthetown campaign to celebrate Glasgow. I got to catch up with some blogging buddies of mine as well as meet lots of lovely new people including Jules and Breige who was my photo buddy.
The workshop was held at the Millennium hotel on George Square who put on a lovely spread of tablet muffins and drinks for our arrival. We spent the morning learning the basics to take our cameras off the dreaded auto mode including shutter speed, focus and ISO. Stuart and Hamish from Dreghorn Photography Studio were incredibly helpful and made things I'd found impossible to understand from a book ridiculously easy and straightforward. We then headed to the hotels restaurant for lunch and tucked into an array of Scottish goodies including haggis bon bons and venison hot dogs - yum!
After lunch we headed outside to take some photos around Glasgow including George Square, Buchanan Street and Royal Exchange Square. Unfortunately my camera died during our photo challenges so I only snapped some flowers - silly me forgot to charge the battery - but they came out fab!
I had a great day learning new photography skills and am definitely feeling inspired to say goodbye to the many auto modes my camera offers. Massive thanks to Dreghorn Photography, Millenium Hotels and Joe Blogs Blogger Network for organising the day!
