Selection of pictures from the Photography Mentoring Service for May – the theme was “Yourself”

Posted in Mentoring Service, Uncategorized on July 1st, 2015 by Phil – Comments Off

Most photographers hate having their pictures taken (good excuse to hide behind the camera), and true to form very few pictures this month featured actual recognisable faces.

Picture of the month this month was telling the story with objects – Sally-Anne tells us quite a bit about herself with a few choice objects – note how some are lovingly worn. It’s a portrait rather than a landscape, so low f number, watch the white balance and try to get it lined up without looking too obvious.

I’ve cropped it in for more drama (hopefully) without losing the essential information.

This month’s theme prompted lots of lovely pictures of frolicking children, which we’ve decided not to post here. Great stuff though! As you can see – we were also heavily into sheep, dogs and even frolicking greenfly! Some super pictures here, many of which have not done well in competitions or camera clubs. Just goes to show – if you like it, it wins!

Photography mentoring service July selection – “Serenity”

Posted in Uncategorized on August 9th, 2013 by Phil – Comments Off

This month’s theme was straightforward, we thought, but lots of people found it difficult. Cue lots of swans, flowers and sunsets!

This month’s problem seem to be with a few people struggling with metering – I’ve written a few articles on it for the Ask PMS section of the website if you are interested. Fab stuff as always!

We’re going to be a bit more dilligent about the blog this month, having realised that we only managed one post all month. We’ll try to make sure that we put pictures up frequently – watch this space.

For your regular fix of things PMS have a look at our facebook page!
