The Societies Phil & Juliet Jones along with guest speaker Richard P Walton FSWPP and model Celine Mailland recently visited Istanbul to meet local photographer and give an informative seminar programme.
The full-day seminar was well received by eager attendees who have travelled from all parts of Turkey to be there.
Looking for something a little different for this programme, the class was held on board a river cruiser that set sail along the Bosphorus, this gave Richard the opportunity to show his work and give helpful and informative advice, along with some practical demonstrations on lighting and posing
Mid day we docked and the group ventured up to the impressive Anadolu Kavagu Castle, which offered magnificent views and is situated overlooking the Black Sea.
Richard soon got to work showing again his skills in lighting and posing with the model and in his usual way demonstrated how to 'think outside of the box'. His enthusiasm soon rubbed off on the delegates who got busy capturing images and exploring different angles and perspectives.
It was then back to the boat for another on board lecture session, demonstrating Photoshop techniques and post-production.
All in all a fantastic day and we cannot wait to return to meet our new members in Turkey again.
Grateful thanks to Kayhan Durukan for his hard work in making the day such a success
