Photo Nottingham

I thought I'd have a go at making a little slide show to
show you what I've been up to in the last week or two.
I was very impressed with Andrea's slide show, which she
set up a few days ago, and thought I'd have a go myself.

I got chatting with a professional photographer a few
months ago -- Stuart McIntyre of Photo Nottingham --
while he was opening his premises on Mansfield Road one
morning.

More recently I contacted him to see if he would be willing
to give us (at Nottinham U3A) a few ideas on how to take
better photos, which he very kindly agreed to do. So, about
ten days ago he took a small group of us around one of
Nottingham's parks, The Arboretum, which is round the corner
from his studio, followed by spending another hour going
through our photos (and tweaking them with Photoshop).
You'll see some of my efforts in the slide show below.

Earlier this week, we had a second meet-up with Stuart, but
this time he showed us how to take studio photos with his
equipment (and we spent another hour going through the photos,
when I picked up a few more ideas on what to do in Photoshop)
So in the second half of the slide show are photos that the
other group members took ... not my efforts. As you'll see
Stuart was a wizard with the lighting, and you can see some
of his work on his Photo Nottingham website. He uses very
high quality Canon digital cameras, and gets superb results
with them ... he's a brilliant photographer too.
