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 also go to David’s well-executed Venice pictures, and Dave’s 1.3 second long exposure of Chateau Impney, the French castle improbably cited in Droitwich.

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.

Comments Off on Selection of Photography Mentoring Service pictures for August 2015

This month there were two themes somewhat related – hanging by a thread and falling apart at the seams.  Can you see which theme the picture was based upon?
