This time Steve (http://www.stephenfootephotography.co.uk) wanted to make sure that as well as a set of beautiful images each,
we also all left with the understanding of how to use house-hold items , our own cameras and versions of Photo-shop to get quality photos of our work regularly.
We all participated in the making of images of each other’s work and there was a great level of discussion and evaluation of what we are all doing.
As well as keeping the cost down (each person paid £40), one of the benefits of these collective Shoots is seeing your work through the eye of the Camera and of your peers; you spot flaws and successes that you might miss alone in your Studio. And it is always very encouraging to be with like-minded people. We agreed not to sugar-coat our feed-back and between us we had a great deal of expertise. The day was really interesting and inspiring.
Having a wide range of work materials amongst the group meant more questions and solutions were flagged up.
The Pot-Luck lunch was delicious and a great time to swap ideas.
Here is a selection of my favourite images.
Utterly beautiful work and very glad to be part of the Team!
Thank you for the fab photos of the day, Melinda Loke, and for all your other help.
A very enjoyable, interesting, rewarding and sociable day was had by all!
