Beginners Luck

By LynneJoyce  
A tribute to the tutors and organisers of the Beginners Photography Course I attended on Saturday August 14th, these photographs were taken on the day during the exercises set. So thank you Warehouse Express and Canon for an excellent course, I hope to be a much better photographer as a result of your efforts.

One plea, I had to get the 06.08 train to get there on time, didn't get home until after 21.30, spent 92.00 in fares in addition to the course cost so please guys, remember that there is life outside the M25 when next you think of course venues.

I got lots from the course and it was great fun, even though the travelling was dire. Thanks for looking and I hope you like some of them.

Great set of images, all really wonderful. I would love to take a course but I'd have a worse problem than you to get there. Would require a ferry to the mainland. So, guess I will fumble along, having fun..........Sandy

the one thing that puts me off attending any of these photography courses is the travel, I always look to see where they are held and while London is not all that far as the crow flies from me, to take my kit and use the train/bus would simply be too much for me but looks like you had a good day Lynne and you have results to show for it, great shot

V1 really has a lot going for it. Maybe a bright day inside the M25. Must happen occasionally.
GarrathE 11 4 United Kingdom
18 Aug 2010 6:36PM
V1 is my favourite too! Phenomenal detail, depth of field and just the right light balance.

@Pluckyfilly: what made it entirely possible for Lynne was her investement in her Peli case, which is flight case sized with wheels and a pull out handle. It comes with a lifetime replacement-no-questions-asked warranty and it works - Lynne has has one replacement after the first was damaged by burglars in Spain. Not cheap but huge value for money.

Great detail and so sharp it has to be V1 for me, I like the whole set and congratulate you on your efforts getting to and from the course. Traveling such lenghs and the time taken is always an added burden, but you have taken some great pics and must have had plenty of extra knowlege drilled in on the day. Hope we see more of this work in the near future Lynne. Smile
