Selection of pictures from the Photography Mentoring Service for October – the theme was Connected

Posted in Mentoring Service on November 5th, 2014 by Phil and Rachel – Comments Off

This month we have an even wider range of subjects and concepts than usual. I’ve picked out 20 of the best pictures – there are also a fair few on our Facebook page. I really am constantly amazed by the ingenuity and creativity that people show in taking these pictures. Don’t forget that most of the people here are fairly new to photography, and most of them have fairly old cameras!

We are always keen to get more people involved with  Photography Mentoring Service, and we have now made it easier to sign up for a fixed period, which also enables you to give a few months mentoring as a gift –  Christmas is coming!  If this sounds like a good idea, go here to sign up.

Selection of Photography from the Photography Mentoring Service for September – the theme was Abandoned

Posted in Mentoring Service, Photography Course Students on October 6th, 2014 by Phil and Rachel – Comments Off

This month we had the widest geographic range of pictures –  from California to Kamchatka, with a few closer to home – the abandoned village of Tyneham in Dorset, boats at Hayling Island and doorways in Valencia.

People have commented that they find these pictures intimidating – these are taken by ordinary people on ordinary cameras (sometimes really really ordinary cameras).  If you think these are good – just think what you could do with a bit of thought.  And if your pics are a bit ropey we can help!!

We can do mentoring as a gift certificate for a limited time (and limited price) these days – check it out here.

Selection of pictures for the Photography Mentoring Service for August 2014 – the theme was “Impossible”

Posted in Mentoring Service on September 11th, 2014 by Phil and Rachel – Comments Off

A small selection of the pictures from this month’s Photography Mentoring Service – perhaps the widest range of subjects and techniques we’ve seen. It is gratifying to see the pictures improving each month, both creatively and technically.

Selection of pictures for the Photography Mentoring Service for July 2014 – the theme was “Empty”

Posted in Mentoring Service, Photography Course Students on August 14th, 2014 by Phil and Rachel – Comments Off

We had a great variety of pictures this month, as some people found this theme much harder than others.  Lots of empty buildings, seeds and fruit, and chairs!  See what you think.
