What's your photographic bucket-list?
These individual sessions are designed to be fast-track ways of boosting your photography skills in a laid-back fun environment. What’s most important to us is what you want from photography! We all have our own aesthetic style or are striving to find it. I love minimalist B/W Medium Format film photography like you can find in the works of Salgado, Kenna, and Sugimoto. James Lane Photography captures mostly colourful iconic images on medium format digital sensors whose depth and detail are epic. This is your photographic journey and we are here to help facilitate that, not to preach or dictate.
So whether you chose a 1-2-1 or a 2-2-1 session, you’ll know that our priority is your journey of discovery.
‘You don’t understand, Man! You weren’t there!’ – ever heard that film can’t be recreated in digital cameras; or how film cameras slow you down; or any other cliche about film? Learning to shoot completely manual with film will better your photographic knowledge! Will it make you a better photographer? That’s up to you and your eye to find out!
How to shoot in manual
There is nothing wrong with shooting in Modes like P,A,S but have you ever wondered how to maximise your camera for artistic expression?
Don’t know an F-Stop from a Bus Stop? Don’t worry, we all start at the beginning. If knowledge is power, then this will have you battle ready!!
Ever wanted to know how photographers make water look like glass? Or how clouds streak across the sky?
Have a Lightroom editing session where we can go through images and help you develop a specific style.
depth of field panos
Panoramas are great. But did you know you can use the panorama tool in Lightroom and Photoshop to give your ‘normal’ images a special look and feel?
What you’ll definitely need
a big crazy silly idea
Whether you want to understand your camera better or tick off a bucket-list portfolio shot, we want to know it!!
a desire to get better
These 1-2-1 or 2-2-1 sessions are designed to be high intensity tutorials; you are our sole focus!
a sick sense of humour
It’s going to be dark. You’re going to be setting up in the dark. And you’re going to want your hands for getting ready OR putting in pockets.
