As some of you know I’ve been interested in photography for many years, especially the quirky urban stuff (the shot below of a less than appropriately named shop with European migrant workers gathering outside is one. I got such a look off them I quickly moved on!) .
Along with a friend, who is a landscape photographer, we have dipped our toes into the training field, offering opportunities to learn the basics of photo editing software like Photoshop. We both went on courses which were so high speed and techie we got quickly lost and felt we could do something which wouldn’t bewilder people. We are also doing ‘walks with a camera’, where a small group bring their digital cameras along – and we help them get to grips with some of the zillions of features and help people move on from the point and shoot level, out and about in the countryside. These days are run mostly in and around Derbyshire and the Peak National Park, but we have gone further afield where there is a demand. Plug over!
