As you may recall from this post my obsession with photography as been reawakened and next Wednesday I am starting a year-long photography course with the very talented Kevin Ahronson from the Hampshire School of Photography. My excitement levels about this course have reached a level only previously attained by a trip to Mr B’s. Strong words indeed.
I have discovered that The Patience of the Delightful Mr F is pretty much limitless, as I have had my head in the manuals for my cameras and glossy photography books* for the last several weeks. I have also taken to carrying my camera everywhere. I used to rely on my iPhone, but the purchase of a Fuji X70, has changed that, and now I can get high quality images with an easy to carry teeny-weeny camera.
The only real way to get better at photography is to do it. I am hoping that over the next 12 months I can develop my technical skills as well as start to get to grips with my own personal photographic style**. After 2016, which frankly was a bit of a slog on many fronts, I am finding photography rather invigorating. So, for now (or until change my mind or get bored), Sunday is hereby declared as Photography Sunday on the blog. Like an annoying relative back from a mundane holiday, I shall regale you with my photographs. You have been warned. Lets start as I mean to go on with a few shots from Devon
