Of course I do, I was born there and my fondest memories as a child are harnessed in the boundaries of this beautiful, old city. And of course I was always going to make it one of my places for my traveling one day photo courses. Hello?
I taught 4 fab lasses how to take their amazing cameras out of automatic mode and shooting in full semi-automatic with all the tricks and buttons that allow you to take amazing photos. Oh, we did laugh. A lot. And as sure as egg is eggs, they were taking brilliant photos by the end of the day. You just can't beat teaching photography to people in laymans terms. Technical jargon is not appropriate when all you want to do is take nice photos without explaining the science behind ISO. And also why, when recomposing, does your initial focus point stay in focus when you have shifted the camera. Bleh - hurts my head too!
We spent most of our time in the stunning surrounding of the Corn Exchange and the Victorian Arcade, look ->
Isn't it pwitty?
All archy and spanning out far and wide
A fan of beautiful architecture
filigree balustrades adding interesting touches
And paving that might go amis to the everyday person
Freeze framing water at 3200 of a second - check out the bubbles!
Lots of lovely things are in your city, waiting to be photographed. Am I coming to a city near you to teach? Come see HERE.
**edited to add (in light of recent unnecessary rumblings) These are MY photos from the day and not students photos. I take these as they go off an practice compositions**
