Overview Amazing just what is right on your doorstep

I’ve just been looking at a new community website and found someone who’s asking for “good locations for photography’.  And there are lots of generous suggestions - most of the locations being the usual suspects.  Which is a shame; the locations offered are great views if you’re out for a walk or having a picnic.  And on the right day, at the right time of year and at the right time of day, they could look good as a photograph. Trouble is, someone else’s idea of a picture won’t be yours - that I’ll guarantee. The suggestions that I make in my monthly column ‘Picture This’ are always based on looking and seeing.  The closer you look, the more you see; and the more you see the more you will find your own unique pictures.


Dont miss this exibition

21st August 2013

The Masters of Vision is currently showing in the Minster at Southwell, Nottinghamshire until 26th August. The exhibition is free.
I went mid-week and the exhibition was quiet so there was lots of time to enjoy the photographs. The setting for the exhibition is breathtaking and the photography outstanding. There are 9 photographers exhibiting; Joe Cornish is the ‘star’ of the photographers showing their work. 8 of the photographers are exhibiting inside the West door and Joe’s work is exhibited in the crossing of the Minster.  Give yourself lots of time to wander through the Minster as it is an amazing place. If you want to take photographs inside the Minster - even with your iPhone - you will need to buy a £5.00 photography permit.  A great exhibition which you should see.
