I recently attended a fabulous two day workshop on photography and mood boarding. The course ‘Defining Your Signature Style’ was run by the lovely Emily Quinton (Makelight) who taught the photography day and mood boarding guru and trends expert Gudy Herder (Eclectic Trends).
The first day was all about photography, having already done a couple of courses with Emily I was excited to see what new tips I would pick up. As per the workshop’s name we looked at 3 example styles of photography and practised taking photos in that style. On the day I was drawn to the minimalist style and you can see a few of my practise shots in this style but we also considered moody imagery and bright and colourful ones too.
Playing with focus points
The second day was all about mood boarding and all the different ways you can create mood boards and then use them to define your style. We were focusing on representing our personal styles and brands but as mood boarding plays an important role when I’m working with wedding couples’ wedding design I was able to pick up some incredibly helpful tips on creating and using mood boards to express design ideas.
Gudy has written a fabulous blog post that explains the worshop in a lot more detail and you can also see my moodboard from the day (that gives you a little sneak peek into my new branding colours), so do take a look here.
