What you'll do

Welcome to a hidden gem in Southampton, The Old Bond Store for our camera phone workshop designed specifically for beginners. Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly greeted by Sally, and we’ll kick off the day by enjoying a delightful coffee or tea as we head to the distillery training room.

The workshop will commence with an engaging session on various composition techniques. This won’t be a one-way lecture; it’s all about interaction and participation. To make the practical sessions more exciting, feel free to bring along some props such as ornaments, candles, or any interesting artefacts you’d like to incorporate into your photos (please ensure nothing alive is brought in).

If the weather allows, we’ll step outside to explore the historic Old Walls of the city while applying the newly acquired skills to capture stunning images with your phone. During this outdoor excursion, you’ll also get to learn about the different editing features available on your phone. Back at The Old Bond Store, we’ll delve into practising new editing techniques, where you’ll discover how to effectively use filters and perform manual edits to enhance your photographs further.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll feel more confident and skilled in utilising your camera phone to take captivating photos and master the art of editing. Join us for this fun and educational experience that will unlock your creative potential in mobile photography.
