Lights, Camera, Currys! Photography Workshop in Brighton with Dade Freeman

Currys PC World photography workshop Dade Freeman Brighton #LightsCameraCurrys

Last weekend together with bunch of outgoing bloggers I took part in the Lights, Camera, Currys! photography workshop organized by Currys PC World in Brighton Media Centre and run by Brighton based photographer Dade Freeman who runs Brighton Photographers Group.

I absolutely loved the workshop for couple reasons:  the atmosphere was superb, it was quite small event and everyone was very friendly. Dade Freeman is not only very talented photographer but great teacher, towards the end of the afternoon seemed like everyone were able to put things, we have just learned, in life. We even went out to the Brighton’s seafront to take some shots and prove ability to use our knowledge. Considering how little time we had I’m rather pleased with the results…

The 30 minute time to take photos was a bit too short and I did not capture the symmetry but on my way home I came across Brighton Naked Bike Ride protesting against car culture and demonstrating cyclists’ vulnerability… Do you think that below image is good enough as an example of symmetry?
