Photography Workshop Review by The Perthshire Magazine

Photography Workshop Review by The Perthshire Magazine - Cat Burton - Blog

The editor of The Perthshire Magazine, Abigail, recently joined me for an “Understanding Your Camera” photography workshop. Since she was keen to try photographing a few different subjects, we went to the wonderful Kinnoull Hill in Perth. This enabled us to try everything from macro to animals to landscapes!

Abigail did very well on the workshop. Having not used the camera before, we slowly transitioned from automatic to aperture/shutter priority and within no time she was shooting on manual! She’s a very quick learner and it was great to see her confidence grow in such a short space of time.

She got some great shots during the session and has continued practicing her skills since. Here are some of her favourite photographs that she’s taken so far!

It was an absolute pleasure to teach Abigail and see her progress so quickly with her photography!

After the workshop, they were kind enough to write a wonderful review for the magazine which you can read below:

If you would like help with your photography, please feel free to get in touch. All workshops are offered on a private 1-1 basis so you can learn at your own pace. Or if you prefer, why not bring along a friend to share the day with you?

You can browse a selection of available workshops here on my website:

Living Magazine Editorial

Cat Burton's Blog - Editorial in LIVING Magazine

It was an absolute pleasure to meet with Elaine Hunter for this editorial in LIVING Magazine. She captured my personality and style perfectly.

My favourite quotes from the article are below, and you can read the full editorial in the images that follow.

 

“Cat Burton’s artworks are the essence of atmosphere and ethereal beauty.”

 

“Her images are haunting and moody … she manages to bring Scottish landscapes to life – imbuing them with a sense of serenity and calm.”

 

“Her images have hints of Game Of Thrones and Lord Of The Rings – a genre of another age and time.”

 

“She blends images – taking different shots at different times, then marrying them together to create her own bewitching, unique art.”

 

“A dark-haired Laura Dern with the edge of a goth and the spirit of Alfred Hitchcock.”

 

“That is the essence of this talented young woman – taking risks and all the while letting us see the world from a slightly different angle.”
