Matt Krumins presenter at Bright Festival of Photography

MEET MATT KRUMINS


The hardest working man in photography and part of the two man BFOP management team. He is the thinking lady photographer's dream date and was narrowly pipped by Denis Smith as “most enthusiastic instructor 2018”.

Matt is a truly fabulous nature and wildlife photographer. He loves making his photography even more complicated than the rest of us (think sharks, underwater, in a cave). He hasn’t quite decided what he’ll e teaching in 2019. But it will be fabulous. And sold out. If you can’t catch his workshop then at least sneak a hug - he smells gorgeous.

2019 BFOP WORKSHOPS & PRESENTATIONS:



A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO LIGHT - Lighting

Hard light? Soft light? Flat light? Light direction? Ok.. I’m scared now. Join Matt Krumins as he takes you through what all of these things mean and how they can transform your photography. Unlike other workshops, this isn’t about ‘lighting a scene’ this is about a really deep understanding of how light can affect any situation and being able to apply this to almost anything. Matt has a knack for making complex topics child’s play and this is no exception!


LIGHTROOM & PHOTOSHOP - Advanced

So you've taken some ok photos huh? My bet is that they are absolutely freaking amazing but just need a little nudge with the right brush, a bump with the right slider and a tweak with the right profile. Join Matt Krumins guru of making things simple in his Advanced Lightroom workshop where he will cover the differences between Lightroom and Photoshop, advanced local adjustment techniques and how to apply some of the less known adjustments in Lightroom to make your images go from drab to fab!


WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY - Beginners

So Wildlife photography is one of the easiest forms of photography to generalise about but one of the hardest to nail when you are under pressure. Join Matt Krumins as he takes you through preparing for the shoot, lens selections as well as which modes to use and when! Wildlife isn’t easy to come by when you are in a large group of excited BFOP’pers so we will be doing this as a practical session in the park using dummy wildlife targets but you will never see your wildlife quite the same after this.
