Dulra Photography - Workshops with Daragh Muldowney

Workshops - Excellent opportunity!

Do you have a digital camera that you can’t get your head around? F stops, ISO, Shutter Speeds, Aperture and more technical jargon that’s keeping your lovely camera firmly locked in the auto mode? Or, you understand the technical side but would like some compositional assistance while visiting some of the finest scenery Ireland has to offer?

Why not join Daragh and other like minded participants on one of his weekend residential workshops and you’ll learn both photographic and compositional skills while staying in beautiful parts of Ireland and eating good quality home cooked food.

All locations have been carefully researched which gives Daragh a wide selection of locations to choose from as light conditions vary.

Call Daragh on 087 293 9374http://dulraphotography.com/Workshops/
