Posted in Mentoring Service on June 10th, 2016 by Phil – Comments Off

A lot of flowers, collies and walls this month, not political statements as you might expect.

Oh, and this is what I look like when mentoring – you don’t have to shave and the coffee is nearby!! Picture taken by the camera on the iMac in the kitchen of PMS Towers.

Photography Mentoring Service Pictures for April 2016 – the theme was Boy/Girl

Posted in Mentoring Service on May 11th, 2016 by Phil – Comments Off

Silly me, I hadn’t realised that we’d get so many pics of, er, Boys and Girls.  And then that we wouldn’t b able to put them on the blog.  So it looks a bit thin this month, sorry!

On the plus side, welcome back Toby with this astonishing creepy shot:

Photography Mentoring Service pictures for March 2016 – the theme was “Bright”

Posted in Mentoring Service on April 11th, 2016 by Phil – Comments Off

A very varied crop this month, and a few new members – welcome aboard!

Rob was up to his usual tricks with lego – look at these carefully – fantastic attention to detail.

Our favourite was this one from Dave – not sure why, it’s just a nicely-executed shot.

Photography Mentoring Service Pictures – this month’s theme was “Sheer”

Posted in Mentoring Service on March 21st, 2016 by Phil – Comments Off

I thought we’d go with a theme that was potentially less narrative-based and more texture and scaley.  Well, that was the idea!

People were very struck by this picture by Elaine – capturing the fabric beautifully with a well-executed tricky shot.  It’s just the kind of thing I was looking for:

Canon 60D, 79mm equivalent, f4.5, 1/200th, ISO 2000.  We love the way you can see the window in the background, but how it’s not obtrusive.
