4th July: Flower Photography Practical Workshop

This was a follow-up to the June workshop in which Ron Churchill, John Draper and Alan Graham presented their personal approaches to flower photography.

During the first half of this well-attended evening, people enjoyed having the opportunity to practise their own flower photography techniques;  in the second half, thanks to Mark Buckley Sharp who uploaded the images on the laptop, the fruits (flowers?!) of their labour were reviewed and discussed.

Many thanks to all  for a thoroughly enjoyable and informative evening.
