September 2017 Photography Mentoring Program gallery – the theme was Freezing

October 13, 2017

This month we had some great stuff, from a shutter speed and temperature point of view. All DLSRs can achieve shutter speeds of 1/4000th or even more, which can stop droplets etc. (Have to say though, if you really like…

September 13, 2017

A restful series of pictures here for August.  Green is difficult for our cameras, as green things tend to be bit not reflective and therefore overexpose.  Also, the super greenery of British foliage can sometimes fool the camera’s white balance…

May 2017 Photography Mentoring Service pictures – the theme was Open and Shut

June 8, 2017

This month’s theme was Open and Shut – although lots of pics this month didn’t follow it (that’s ok with us, it’s just a guide!)  With an oppositional composition the trick is to try to balance the open/shut, male/female, thing/other…
