Down to you

We love hearing from you and seeing examples of what you've been doing in response to some of the tasks and ideas given this week. Thank you for sharing them.

It's been lovely weather this week and two members had a go at creating their own still life compositions whilst enjoying some time in the garden. The results are brilliant, and very imaginative. The second image is a great example of alternative camera techniques as the photographer has merged the first image with a still life of a coffee AeroPress on a couple of breadboards.

The first image made us think of The Two Ronnies, Four Candles Sketch!

Spring flowers -

Another member has also been enjoying time in the garden and has shared some images of their favourite spring flowers. Tulips, Camellias and Hellebores.

What's your favourite flower? Is it available in Spring?

This is also a great time to reflect on some of the work that has been completed during some of our courses.

Our photography group held an exhibition as part of the Off Centre Photography Festival in October and selected some of their favourite pieces of work to feature in it.

These images were taken from their own portfolios as well as ones taken during the 10 week course tutored by Jagdish Patel.

Below is a selection of photographs taken by members of the group, to view the full collection click here.
