Possibly the best testimonial we’ve ever had!

August 2, 2017

Not surprisingly, lots of flowers and cobwebs this month, but also the astonishing steelwork from Sheffield, insects, trees and even seafood! Picture of the month goes to Dave, who took this flower picture using flash.  This gives great definition and droplets,…

Quiet at Llyndy Isaf

Fantastic picture from Sue for the Photography Mentoring Service, Llyndy Isaf on a quiet day. Conventional framing really works here, and the colours are spectacular.

April 2017 Mentoring Service Pictures – the theme was Quiet

May 11, 2017

A straightforward theme this time, but some interesting and diverse pictures as usual.  Man of the Match the month goes to Rob, well out of his usual comfort zone with well constructed and thought through graveyard landscapes.  We also liked…
