This time exploring East London’s Dalston, the @Echo Photo Walk is kicking off with an unmissable workshop by professional photographer Charles Gervais.
Echo Workshop - Single-light Portrait Photography (11.30am -12.30pm)
How does a 1-hour introduction to single-light, portrait photography sound?
Charles will cover the basics needed to set up, modify, and shoot with a powerful studio light on location. Then, we’ll take the same light out onto the streets to learn how to mix and balance artificial light with ambient light, for creative and practical effects.
This will be an entirely hands-on workshop. Ideally, you’ll have a camera that can be set to fully manual and a lens focal length from 10mm - 600mm. Although, if you don’t, no need to panic, there’ll be plenty chances to share kit with others - after all that’s what Echo Photo Walks are all about!
The Photo Walk (12.30pm - 3.30pm)
After the workshop, we’ll set off to roam the streets of Dalston led by tour guide Simon Cole of Hackney Tours and @frankdasilva who’ll be sharing an array of photography tips. The walk will last around 3 hours.
This is a rare opportunity to learn about the area’s history, melting pot of cultures, famous Ridley Road market and unearth some hidden gems along the way. As always, we’ll only reveal these to ticket holders on the day.
