Making an exhibition of myself!
My, what a busy weekend we had!
We were exhibiting in two places at once on Saturday. The first was at the National Trust “Coleshill Food Festival”. Astute observers will notice that we’re not involved in producing food, but offer creative portrait photography and photographic training. Well, at the show there were some craft stands, and that’s where we come in. Mind you, the sort of thing we try and do with our portrait photography also applies to food…
It’s a nice off-centre composition, and shows the food to its best advantage. It works with people too.
Our stand at the Food Festival was busy all day, and we had lots of interest in both the portrait photography and the photographic training courses.
The second place we exhibited was at Pat Elmore’s sculpture garden in Longcot as part of Swindon Open Studios. The weather was great on the Saturday, and it looked more like the Med than Oxfordshire!
I also had lots of interest in the Fine Art abstract images printed on aluminium. You can check my previous posts to remind yourselves what they look like.
Whilst I was there I took the chance to go round Pat’s sculpture garden, and to take some creative images using the sort of techniques we cover in our “The Creative Eye” course.
This “spider ” on the glass roof of a greenhouse caught my eye, as did this fabulous pattern on the leaf of a large plant.
In the “Spider” image I’ve put the main subject well off-centre, and with the pattern image there’s a lovely diagonal curve. You can find out more about these and other compositional techniques at one of our courses.
See you soon!
