Give Your Photography A Fresh Start Today

If we combine the knowledge of old master painters with digital Photography, we create beautiful Works of Art. The feeling of a painting and detail of Photography. Engaging photographs infused with light, mood, drama, and atmosphere. – Pictures that ignite our curiosity, imagination, thoughts, and feelings.

Photography is more than ‘clicking the shutter’- it uses visual language. Like a written or spoken language: it must be learned. A pen doesn’t make us good writers; cameras don’t make us good photographers. – Visual language decides if you create good Photography. – The more fluent you are, the better your pictures will be.

I have 40 years of experience as a professional photographer. As your personal tutor, I offer online and in-person workshops. I will improve your Photography by identifying and solving your weaknesses, then teaching you Visual Language, Photography Skills, and Photoshop Techniques to create beautiful and engaging Photography.

We Create Signals …

Think of Photography as making a ‘signal,’ like an electronic signal. – Photographers create the signal by taking a photograph; the photograph transmits the signal to the viewer, and the viewer decodes it. – When decoded, the signal stimulates the viewer, and the viewer generates an emotional response. – A percentage of the signal gets ‘lost in transit.’ Therefore, the more pure we make the signal, the more efficient and effective it is. – A signal that is weak, confused, or noisy, fails. – As photographers, our job is to control the content and quality of ‘The Signal.’

This is what we must achieve as good photographers. – Make good ‘Signals’ …

The Workshop Overview

Let’s look at the problem first …

Photographers make uncreative photographs because they lack artistic knowledge – not a lack of photographic knowledge. The lack of artistic knowledge makes them rely on cameras to do all the work. If we only know ‘How to take a picture,’ we disconnect Photography from artistic knowledge to make our picture creative. – If we don’t make our pictures creative, we disconnect our pictures from people. We produce literal pictures that don’t stimulate people. Failed ‘Signals’ that don’t achieve anything. – To solve all these problems; we need to expand our knowledge beyond Photography. – This is the purpose of my one-to-one workshops.

“We can’t create Good Photography – if we don’t know how Good Photography works first.”

Understanding Signals …

‘The Signal’ has three elements – Human Nature, Art, and Photography. – Human Nature is the universal common denominator we share with people worldwide; it’s people at the fundamental level, so Human Nature dictates the rules. – If we comply with the rules, we succeed, but if we break them, we fail. – We create pictures that appeal to people, by knowing how pictures appeal to Human Nature. – Artistic Knowledge tells us to visually create pictures that appeal to people; at a Human Nature level. – Photography alone, just ‘Takes The Picture.’

We Must Look Beyond Photography

Think of the workshop knowledge as a Pyramid. – The Pyramid base has the broadest knowledge: Human Nature, Behavior, and Perception. The middle is Artistic Knowledge and Principles; the top is Photography and Photoshop Techniques. The Picture is the tip. Each layer of the Pyramid needs the broader knowledge below it. – Workshops start at the base and finish at the top. – The subject is only relevant at the top. – Below the top is all fundamental knowledge that applies to Photography universally, not a specific subject.

Photography doesn’t live in isolation; everything works on a “cause & effect” basis. – We must see Photography in the context of Art. Photography and Art, in the context of Human Nature. – Tell me one thing you do where Human Nature has no influence.  – Everything relates to Human Nature. – Therefore, we need to learn Human Nature, then Art, then Photography, then you know how to create good Photography. – Improvement requires less attention to Photography skills and more concentration on understanding Human Nature and learning Artistic Principles.

Improvement starts by understanding these relationships first …

Good Photography Explained …

Imagine going to a shopping mall to buy a jacket. – A jacket catches your eye; it’s stylish and suitable for work. It’s warm, waterproof, and has a pocket for protecting your phone from the heavy rain. So, you buy it. It gives you benefits and is aesthetically pleasing, and the designer gave the jacket a purpose by understanding the end user’s needs. – People will use the same logic to evaluate ‘good’ Photography because human nature dictates you do so. – Would we call a photograph ‘good’ if it has no purpose, gives no benefit, and is not visually interesting? People judge Photography at the subconscious human nature level first – not Photography level. – We can’t learn Photography in isolation; disconnected from Human Nature.

Silvaplana Castle, Switzerland.

Seeing Photography only as self-enjoyment means we’re so fixated on Photography that we overlook the basic elements of ‘The Signal’: Human Nature and Art. The result is our pictures don’t resonate with people, and we feel there’s something ‘missing.’ However, if we factor in a viewer, it forces us to consider these wider issues. – Improvement begins with accepting a picture has a viewer, seeing your pictures from a viewer’s perspective, and that viewers will expect a benefit. – Photography is self-expression, but it fails as self-expression if people do not understand what we’re expressing. – By making good pictures for others, you learn how to create better photographs for yourself. – Let’s evaluate pictures as ‘Products.’ – Next.

Good Photography Defined …

Photography has three elements: – The Purpose, the Product, and the End User.
– To create a Benefit for the End User, we must learn Human Nature and Artistic Principles.

The Purpose of The Photograph is to Benefit The Viewer with a stimulating Artistic Experience.

Elements Of Good Photography …

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

1. Clear Purpose

Good Photography stimulates viewers.

Good Photography is thought-provoking. – What a photograph stimulates is more important than what it shows. The purpose is to stimulate the viewer’s curiosity, imagination, thoughts, and feelings. Evoke an emotional response. Pictures are like conversations; our picture makes a statement, and the viewer responds. – Photography that doesn’t stimulate us is a dead-end conversation, dull and uninteresting; viewers get no benefit or reward. – The viewer may not ‘like’ our image, but it must stimulate them; ‘like’ and ‘good’ are different. Good Photography has a clear purpose and gives a clear benefit. – The purpose is to stimulate the viewer.

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

2. Engaging Pictures

Good Photography is understood.

As a viewer, literal pictures don’t provide a benefit because they show us what we expect to see. Not showing anything new, they don’t ignite our curiosity. Pictures we don’t understand, give us no benefit because we can’t engage with them. – Good Photography is in the sweet spot between the two extremes. – Light, three-dimensional form, and atmospheric distance give the picture a foundation of realism, a point of reference to understand the picture. Then, the artistic interpretation makes the picture different, stimulating our minds and evoking the viewers’ curiosity, thoughts, and feelings. – Give viewers ‘Different but Understandable.’

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

3. Understand Viewers

Good Photography knows the end user.

Our end user is the viewer. We can’t create pictures people respond to unless we know how people respond to pictures first. More critically, by knowing how people respond to pictures, we can influence their responses to create a more powerful response when making pictures. If we don’t understand human nature, perception, and behavior, we only create meaningless ‘graphic effects.’ – People don’t respond to ‘graphic effects.’ – To create a response, we must push the viewer’s emotional buttons. – We can’t do this if we don’t understand how people respond to pictures first. – Pictures must connect with people at a Human Nature level.

4. Production Quality

Good Photography is produced well.

The ‘purpose’ and ‘end user’ are only helpful if we know how to create photographs properly. Photography is visual art, and visual art uses a visual language. Artists use visual language the way writers use written language. Visual language allows us to communicate effectively. The ‘Artistic Principles’ are traditional creative guidelines used by old master painters for creating works of art. – Visual language is how we apply those ‘artistic principles’ to create a beautiful work of photographic art. – Our artistic knowledge translates sterile and clinical raw files into – Artistic Photography that appeals to our senses. Pictures with light, mood, and drama.

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

The Conclusion

Good Photography needs knowledge.

‘The purpose of all products is to benefit the end user and create a good user experience.’ – This principle is universally accepted. Why not use it as a guideline for learning Photography? It gives us defined guidelines for creating good Photography and a benchmark to judge good Photography against. Enthusiasts looking to improve naturally turn to Photography for all the answers, unaware the answers they need aren’t found in Photography. Photography is only a minute part of ‘The Signal.’ – The failings are Artistic, and pictures not complying with Human Nature. – Subjects that other workshops don’t teach you. Photography has logical principles; principles can be learned, but Photography alone will not make you a good photographer.

How To Create Good Photography …

Ask Three Questions:

  • What is the ‘hero’ of my photograph? (The subject).
  • What do I want to tell you about the ‘hero’? (The message).
  • How am I going to tell you this in a visual way? (The artistic style).

Good Photography:

  • Avoid showing what we’ve seen many times before; be different.
  • Be thought-provoking and stimulating for viewers.
  • Stop, Captivate, and Benefit the viewer.

How I Create My Photography …

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

1. Photograph Assets

I use a tripod so they align in Photoshop.

Today, photographs aren’t the product of the camera but software. The camera only records ‘assets’ for Photoshop; where we create the photograph. The more assets we take, the more choices we have to create pictures. These assets are the Base image first: I try to get the final image in a single frame, to which I add improvements. Technical assets improve the technical quality: exposures for shadow detail, etc. Artistic assets improve the content: subjects not lit in the Base image, extra people, etc. Finally, various skies to improve mood and atmosphere. –  I take one composition using a tripod so everything aligns. – I often stitch Panoramics.

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

2. Technical Perfection

Create the three-dimensional quality.

After compositing the assets with blending and masking, I make the photograph feel real but looks impersonal. – The aim is technical perfection. I make a strong three-dimensional illusion, enhancing the picture’s qualities of light, three-dimensional form, and spatial or atmospheric distance. This gives the picture a foundation of realism, a point of reference to understand it. Once the realistic three-dimensional illusion of reality is created, that underlying realistic feel is always present in the picture, no matter how radical the artistic treatment is. Creating rich and detailed shadows is critical. –  Realism helps the viewer connect with the photograph.

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

3. Artistic Transformation

Making the picture personal and unique.

The final stage is to make the photograph feel unreal and personal, an interpretation. I apply the Artistic Principles of light, form, emphasis, contrast, variation, and cohesion, each in turn, to the picture. The workshop explains all of these principles. The emphasis is now on creating visual order and structure for the viewer’s efficiency. Mood and atmosphere for the viewer’s response. The picture should fit into one or more of these categories: symbolism, connection, ambiguity, or innovation to ignite the viewer’s curiosity, again, all explained in the workshop. – I apply my personal artistic preferences to create photographs in my own artistic style.

David Osborn Photography, London, England. Teaching enthusiast photographers creative and artistic travel and landscape photography. One-to-one tuition, booked on demand. Online or in-person workshops.

The Conclusion

To improve, look beyond Photography.

A camera records images; people create pictures. – Cameras are tools, and tools don’t have brains. We cook our food because it gives us better meals. Arguing against retouching is like saying chefs shouldn’t cook their food. It’s nuts. Retouching is what makes the picture. Like a good chef, it’s not if you cook, but how well you cook. Quality requires knowledge, skill, and craftsmanship. What we see visually, we respond to emotionally. Retouching is the marriage of art and science. The art and wisdom of the old master painters, the science of Psychology. Photography just records data. – Retouching is where we work like painters, provides great artistic satisfaction, and produces a beautiful work of art with unique personality and style.

Why I Offer A Better Workshop …

Digital Photography has made Photography accessible for everyone’s enjoyment. Sadly, it’s also created an enormous flood of unqualified teachers, generally amateurs wanting to make money in Photography. The first ‘go-to’ option to make money is teaching, despite having no work experience in Photography as a job taking photographs. These ‘teachers’ now dominate the worlds of photographic knowledge, education, and workshops on the internet, YouTube, and social media. Their Photography is self-enjoyment but promoted as ‘Education.’ – They’re NOT professional photographers. – They’re ‘content creators’ who now teach Photography.

Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE.

The working photographer’s survival relies on the quality of their Photography; they prioritize ‘The Picture.’ The job is visual problem-solving to create pictures that ‘Talk to People.’ – Social media and YouTubers prioritize enjoyment, not pictures, ignoring 90% of what makes a good ‘Signal.’ They fixate on Photography only and only on ‘How to take a picture.’ – This isn’t broad enough knowledge to make you a good photographer, as seen in their own pictures: – literal and generic-looking postcard-style pictures. – They teach you how to make a style of picture people don’t want because it contradicts human nature to want it. They don’t spark curiosity.

Dubai Mall, Dubai, UAE.

YouTubers don’t try to be better photographers; they only try to be better YouTubers. Using the title ‘Professional’ photographer gives them a greater authority, credibility, and trust. This increases YouTube views and income.  It’s also used to hide their lack of in-depth knowledge and ignorance. – They never prioritize ‘The Photograph’ but instead promote self-enjoyment, and even mental well-being. It attracts viewers. – Entertainment is promoted as ‘Professional Knowledge.’ Intentional deception, and it’s dumbing down Photography. – Content creators are replacing professional knowledge. – Pure deceit. They’re not qualified. – Don’t be fooled.

The Photography Workshop Syllabus …

I start the workshop by explaining my structured workflow and a Photoshop demonstration. – Then I cover human nature, behavior, and perception for ‘How pictures work’ followed by the Artistic Principles of light, form, emphasis, contrast, variation, and cohesion to ‘Make pictures that work,’ finally Photography skills and Photoshop techniques. The purpose of the Photoshop technique is to apply the Artistic Principles; we do this by working on a photograph from start to finish so you have at least one file with every step as documentation to accompany the videos.

Techniques: Photography & Photoshop.

  • Photography – Creating the Photoshop assets with rich shadow detail.
  • Align, clean, and sharpen images. Black & White conversion.
  • Compositing – Advanced masking for sky replacement.
  • Compositing – Exposure blending techniques.
  • Dodge & Burn to create visual energy.
  • Creating three-dimensional form.
  • Create atmospheric distance.
  • Create Rembrandt light.
  • Create moody colors.
  • CREATE QUALITY.

Technical Perfection and Aesthetic Quality.

I Make Your Improvement Easy …

I simplify learning by teaching you one workflow in small modules. – Each module is taught step-by-step, and each step has a concise, explainable reason, so nothing is ambiguous. Add the modules together, and you learn my structured workflow in the sequence used to create my Photography. – If your workshop is online, you receive detailed workshop notes for each module and every step taught, the Photoshop files, and all the live video recordings of every session. – After your workshop, I am available for free follow-up advice, answering questions, and critiquing your Photography. – Email me your pictures, and we talk on a WhatsApp call.

A clear, concise, and structured plan minimizes your risk of not benefiting from my workshop or getting a profitable return on your investment. Trial and error learning is slow, painful, and takes years, and does not guarantee success. – The most efficient, cost-effective solution is personal one-to-one tuition. – With a personal tutor, you learn more knowledge in less time. Improvement needs a one-off investment in your artistic knowledge, not cameras. – My aim is to give you all the knowledge and resources to continue learning efficiently afterward.

Science proves what I teach you works: Where we look in the first 3 seconds.

Details & Questions Answered …

  • Twenty-seven hours of live one-to-one Photography tuition. – Video recorded for free.

    You can learn all this using free Zoom video conferencing software without leaving the comfort of your home. – Every session is video-recorded live for your documentation. – The suggested plan is that each session is 3 hours long, 3 sessions per week, for 3 weeks. – 9 sessions or 27 hours. Any session that needs canceling is not lost but rescheduled. – Online is convenient for working around busy work schedules.

    The online workshop has a structured plan, divided into 9 modules or ‘lessons.’ – Each lesson is explained in detail in the workshop notes. We progress through the lessons chronologically. – Before the workshop, I will ask you for about 10 images. – At the start of the workshop, we discuss your images concerning the artistic concepts and principles and identify weaknesses and ideas to improve them.

    In the retouching phase, we apply every lesson to one of my photographs so that you have a photograph containing every step in one complete Photoshop file, from start to finish, as documentation. We do the same, but a quicker run-through using your pictures at the end. – During the workshop, we will also use different files to explain different techniques; certain subjects are better for teaching specific techniques.

    No preparation is needed before lessons, and I don’t set homework. Still, if clients wish to do homework – I am delighted to review it. – Your knowledge, improvement, and documentation are the priority.

    A detailed list of the subjects and order taught is explained in The Photography Workshop Syllabus.

  • The aims and content are identical to the online option but just in-person. We cover some theory and Photography techniques before shooting our first picture. On our return, I explain, show, and apply the first Photoshop steps to the image. – The client then writes written notes to document the steps and supplement the detailed workshop notes that I supply. With both notes combined, you have detailed documentation and the Photoshop files for after the workshop. – Workshops are not video recorded.

    We then shoot a second image. The client does all the Photoshop steps already taught on their own with the help of their notes. – I explain, show, and apply the next Photoshop steps to the image, and the client writes additional notes. We repeat the process until all the workflow is covered. This approach maximizes the client’s ‘hands-on’ time. – We shoot as many pictures as time and conditions allow.

    The workshop location is decided on by mutual agreement; we discuss the choices and what is preferred. In the UK, accommodation is in holiday cottages; in Europe, we use Airbnb. The client pays the workshop costs; travel, accommodation, and my international return travel, if required, my flights, train, etc. I cover my drinks, food, or meals. – Read the FAQ Page for the terms and conditions, insurance requirements etc.

    Non-UK workshops include three ‘Photography Days’ worth over £1,900. Three extra days are free but can only be used to shoot portfolio-quality photographs. You gain more workshop knowledge, pictures, and time for free. – I gain new photographs to keep my website fresh and up to date.

    A detailed list of the subjects and order taught is explained in The Photography Workshop Syllabus.

    Three options:

    1. Brought to your home in Europe. 11 days.
    2. Travel with you within Europe. 11 days.
    3. Holiday cottage here in UK. 8 days.

    The number of days quoted includes the days needed to travel to and from the Photography workshop.

  • My personal, one-to-one tuition will cost you less than most good group workshops or Photo Tours. Let’s look at National Geographic Expeditions for a cost comparison. They’re about experience, not education, with a potential group of 88. Most workshops are about 6 to 12. – You won’t get 100% personal attention in a group. – One-to-one Photography tuition is a better financial investment for learning fast and effectively.

  • The online option is by far more popular. – It’s convenient, fits in with your work schedule, and is cheaper, having no extra travel expenses. Workshops can be spread over time; if you need to cancel a session, it’s rescheduled, not lost. – The central selling point is the 27 hours of live video recordings of every session, documenting every step in minute detail to continue learning in your own time after the workshop ends.

    The online option is more about education and less about experience. – However, if your priority is more about the experience of taking pictures as an enjoyable break from work combined with learning, – then the in-person option is better. It offers far more time for conversation and the opportunity to learn while taking real pictures. – This option allows for group Photography workshops, provided you arrange the group.

  • Payment is only made by secure online card payment directly to the NatWest Bank in the UK, using the Mastercard system, which then passes your payment on to me. – I have no access to, or store your card information. Your card issuer protects your payment. – The only exception is PayPal for paying the small amount needed for the “Photoshop Download” file. – A deposit of UK £1,900 is required when booking a workshop, and the balance is due thirty days before the start of the workshop. – Please read the “FAQ” page for more details and “The Terms and Conditions,” insurance, expenses, copyright, etc.

  • No. – Lightroom tools are too limited to have the level of control we need over our photographs. Indeed, Lightroom is one significant reason photographs look so literal and generic-looking today. Lightroom is a considerable proportion of the problem. Ironically, it takes no longer to learn Photoshop than Lightroom, but people blindly follow social media advice. – You don’t need to be a Photoshop expert; just confident with the essential Photoshop logic, layout, tools, and procedures. I will teach you Photoshop techniques in my workflow. – Please let me know if you are 100% new to Photoshop and wish to learn Photoshop as preparation for this workshop – we can do a short workshop to get you up to speed before you start. – Email me, and we can work out a plan of action.

  • It’s important to understand that I teach you a structured, repeatable workflow, not my preset style. I am not teaching you to make your photographs look identical to mine. – The aim is to give you all the critical fundamental knowledge and a structured workflow that becomes your basis for quality and style. – Your style will emerge by applying all your choices to every creative decision within the workflow. Given we’re different people, your choices will differ from mine, making your pictures different.
