Comments Off on Photography Mentoring Service pictures for March 2016 – the theme was “Bright”

A very varied crop this month, and a few new members – welcome aboard!

Rob was up to his usual tricks with lego – look at these carefully – fantastic attention to detail.

Our favourite was this one from Dave – not sure why, it’s just a nicely-executed shot.

Comments Off on Photography Mentoring Service Pictures – this month’s theme was “Sheer”

I thought we’d go with a theme that was potentially less narrative-based and more texture and scaley.  Well, that was the idea!

People were very struck by this picture by Elaine – capturing the fabric beautifully with a well-executed tricky shot.  It’s just the kind of thing I was looking for:

Canon 60D, 79mm equivalent, f4.5, 1/200th, ISO 2000.  We love the way you can see the window in the background, but how it’s not obtrusive.

Comments Off on Photography Mentoring Service Pictures – this month’s theme was “Never Gonna Happen”

I wasn’t entirely sure about this theme, to be honest. It was a blatant attempt to get a few narrative-driven pictures. Themes that seem to have grabbed the attention are the National Lottery and camel/eye of needle combinations. Also a slightly defeatist view of abstinence – fair enough! Picture of the month came from Elaine, […]

Comments Off on A selection of photographs from this month’s Photography Mentoring Service – the theme was “Alight”

A genuine variety of photographs this month – not just the expected candle flames. Man of the match this time goes to David for this fine shot – the colours and composition are superb here. Nikon D610 (full frame), 85mm f3.5, 1/125th, 1800 ISO. (It must have been pretty dark, if you think about it!) […]

Comments Off on A selection of pictures from this month’s Photography Mentoring Service, the theme was Decadence.

A wide variety of shots this month.  Picture of the month must go to Rob for his carefully constructed decadent mini world.  Shot at f16, to get a deepish depth of field on such a small subject.  Here we don’t want it to look like a tiny world, the opposite of tilt-shift: Honorable mentions must […]

Comments Off on Selection of Picture from the Photography Mentoring Service, the theme was Doom and Gloom.

A select group of pictures this month, as people struggled with a tricky theme and the days drawing in rapidly. Standout picture for me is from David – I think the shallow depth of field captures the gloominess of losing the chess game perfectly. Photography Made Simple.
