The scene before it all begins at Put Your Heart into It...


We all take photos. All it requires is a pretty sight and a smartphone Yet for those who live it there's far more to it. Not just lenses, exposure and lighting - but perception and understanding. Here's where Put Your Heart Into It (PUHII) comes in. Ran out of Big Bang Studio Northcote, PUHII offers the chance to take your photography to the next level.

Ran out of a beautifully appointed studio, these workshops fairly win many points for their easy going yet in-depth classes. A few words then on how this all works.

Walking on in you'll be invited to pick up some wine, some cheese and take a seat at the table.

At this stage in the workshop the vibe is almost closer to Tapas bar than photographic tutorial. Yet, once underway - though the warm and friendly vibe remains - it is clear these workshops mean business. What's more, they shall also take time to understand why you are here.

The workshop has begun and brainstorming on designs is underway..


Whether you're a hobbyist, a start-up or already in an established business PUHII will take the time at the start to understand why your there, where your skills are - and what you wish to learn. This is done not with complex questionnaires that will leave folks intimidated and go unread but with some on-point yet gentle questions in the early stages of the workshops. This ensures the time spent thereafter in the studio is (though still friendly) focused and helpful.

Your style and taste is also discerned in concrete ways to compliment to the questions. While method can vary for how this is done, the session the writer attended asked for visitors to get to work by assembling a 'mood board'. Evoking fond memories of kindergarten in the minds of many, a pair of scissors and some design fashion magazines is then given to each participant with a view towards assembling a theme for your session in the studio ahead.

At this juncture it shouldn't go unsaid, for a studio just in operation for around a year and a half the environment where the workshops exist are very much ageless and classically stylish. What's more, in a nice touch to the budding photographers walking around camera-in-hand; there are many points of interest and trinkets scattered around to take pictures of throughout the studio.

The lighting is one such focal point that stands out at Big Bang


That this is not just decoration for the sake of it but a deliberate decision to assist students along the way is a commendable feature of the studio.

Then there is the infinity wall. Essentially this is where the magic happens. Moving the class on over from the workshop with a good guide to what the client has in mind, Laura and the team shall then guide you through the process of how to best build, enhance and snap your design.

Going into precise details would perhaps do a disservice both to PUHII and readers for each class will indeed vary by people and their passions but it can be said real sincere time is given here to each attendee. As opposed to just trying to shame up a shot and 'be done with', Laura and team look to both help students take a good shot; and then understand how to take one again.

Commendable too is PUHII's ongoing willingness to stay in touch with clients after workshops and render assistance. To be sure, there are a good number of businesses around the pride themselves in service excellence such as this but it is still a great touch that shouldn't go unrecognised.

All over it confirms PUHII is a workshop not only in the business of providing great service: but truly building an ongoing relationship with their clients once established. Their workshops are well worth a try if keen to skill-build and looking for a friendly yet quality place to do so.
