Photography Weekend Break in Sunshine

What fantastic weather we have just enjoyed here in Kirkcudbright for our April Weekend Photography Course.

The sun has shone, it has been warm enough to relax with a drink in the sunshine between photo shoots, and we have had a lovely group of photographers with us. What more can we ask?

It was particularly good to have with us Anthony Ralph, who was a member of the old PhotoActive Forum. Anthony signed up for the Photography Weekend when he came to see us at the Focus on Imaging Show in March, and we are hoping to see him again on the One Day Photography Workshop at Carlisle Cathedral in November.

We also enjoyed the company of the Bedford family – twin brothers Paul and Andrew with their wives Catherine and Janet and daughter Helen.

There was a real mix of experience among the photographers, but it wasn’t long before even the most inexperienced were snapping away using manual settings on their cameras and getting to grips with some of the subtle techniques of good composition.

There was a wide variety of subjects covered, too. With everything from riverside scenes to street scenes, gardens, people and interior photography covered during the weekend.

The food at the Selkirk Arms Hotel was up to its usual high standards – the hotel has just won another award, but I will post more about this when I have full details.

All the staff at the hotel go out of their way to ensure that our photographers have a great time on these Photography Weekend Breaks and we are delighted to be using the facilities of this excellent hotel. Our thanks to Douglas MacDavid and staff.

Our next Photography Weekend Breaks are not until October – but places are filling, so please do not leave it too late to book.
