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 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.

Getting in there with a wide angle lens at Stourhead

Posted in Photography Course Students, Stourhead Garden, Wiltshire on March 16th, 2012 by Phil and Rachel – Comments Off

One of the lovely things about a proper wide angle lens is that you can get close to a big object and still get it all in.  This is the rustic cottage, caught by one of our students with a 10-24mm Tamron lens on a photography course at Stourhead.

Mid tone grey

We like to find a mid-tone grey in our compositions, but this is just ridiculous!
