Photography day at Millhouse

NFG Photographic Workshop.

Huge thank you to:

Steve Blake, Stewart Carruthers, Tommy Martin and Steve Razzetti

Twenty two keen amateur photographers attended the Photographic Workshop on Wednesday 26th April arranged by NFG Village Agent Philippa Groves.  Four local photographers very generously gave up their time for free to give advice and encouragement and run the workshop.

The day started with coffee and a brief overview of the day; following that they broke into four groups led by Steve Blake, Stewart Carruthers, Tommy Martin and Steve Razzetti. The weather could not have been better and the groups went out on a field trip, some around the village or down to the river and around the local lanes and others up onto the fells.  Everyone reconvened for a delicious buffet lunch supplied by Andrew Teasdale and once refreshed and regrouped most went out again for an afternoon session, some remaining with Tommy Martin to go through some digital processing and technical work on the computer.

The day was a tremendous success with everyone thanking the photographers for giving up their valuable time for the workshop.  We are indeed indebted to Steve, Stewart, Tommy and Steve for their munificence and expertise.

Hopefully we will see some of these photographers and others entering our Photograph competition on May 19th, see details below
