The masterclass was a superb day for many reasons. The company of like minded photographers was excellent- we all gelled really well and there was clear evidence of folk being very comfortable giving and accepting hints, tips and ideas from each other as well as a willingness to share each other’s settings. The fact that we exchanged such information meant I was getting the benefit of not just your expert teaching but also the experience of folk who took photographs of a different style to my own default position. You gave, as always great 121 help and support as well as challenge that moved my practice on. The top tips re: flat lays and tripods were very welcome. You brought a really extensive selection of props to supplement what was already available. I had a fantastic day and recommend the masterclass to anyone with a desire to photograph still life settings. Fabulous.
