We were grateful to Natalie, Des and Hilary for guiding us around to make the most of the light and architecture available and by the time we returned to base, most of us had found it a fruitful and very enjoyable shoot. I even took my tripod out, just long enough to realise how much more I need to practice with it. The advantage of such an excursion is the opportunity to work alongside other enthusiasts, learning from each other and recognising different strengths and approaches to the same environment.
We had been advised to shoot in Raw and Jpeg, so that Ben was able to quickly assemble a slideshow back in St Joseph’s of all our images. This made for a later finish than usual, but the wine helped and there was a general consensus that it had been a most successful and enjoyable event.
