Photography Classes with Rob Allen at The Gallery Cafe, Gort, Co. Galway

The four classes will progress through an introduction to the history of photography, camera handling, overcoming technical challenges, image polishing, and next steps toward having your work seen by a wider audience.

There will be time during each class dedicated to accompanied shooting in and around Gort. Please dress for the weather!
Ideally, each student will have access to a smartphone and a more advanced camera. Laptops are preferred for practical and efficient storage and editing during the month, but smartphones and tablets could be used for the class.
