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.
