It’s great to encourage the photographers who come on my Photography Holidays, Courses and Workshops to show their pictures to as wide an audience as possible.
So once again I have set up a small group on Flickr for the those who came to the Photography Workshop at Carlisle Cathedral at the weekend. It’s a good way of building confidence and getting unbiased feedback.
The Flickr Group can be found here. Photo Workshop Group Carlisle Cathedral
So far a couple of the snappers have posted their favourite images from the day, and I have added a few comments and crits, which I hope will help them.
One of the photographers who has posted is John Smith, who confided to the group that he loved taking pictures purely as memories – he just wanted to create better pictures of those memories.
John wrote a lovely email after the Photography Workshop:
“Thank you for a splendid day at Carlisle – I really enjoyed myself. No wonder the Sunday Times today quoted Carlisle as the happiest town in England!
Your style really was ideal for me: calm, unassuming and so persuasive. Add to that your experience and that lovely way you have of sharing your personal opinion without denigrating that of others, how I wish I had met you years ago. I could have learned a lot from you, as well as a bit about photography too.
Please pass my thanks to Norene for her presence throughout the day too. Not only was she a reassuring anchor if you weren’t about, but her friendliness was contagious for us all.
Kind regards, and yes, I hope that I have the chance to come on a weekend course before too long.”
Thank you John – we look forward to seeing you on a future Photography Course.
Meanwhile I thought I would share the photograph below. One of the staff at the cathedral said to me during the day: “It’s amazing the positions some of these photographers can get into.”
The photograph below proves her point…
I will be fixing a date for the next Photography Workshop at Carlisle Cathedral very soon. If you would like me to keep you informed about updates, please just send me your email address in the box at bottom left of the Home Page
