This month's summary
(items are now hot linked from summary for convenience)


Community Seminars.

Images from Contributors and/or recent Community Group Photo Workshops.

More photography images have been emailed to me, thank you, since my previoust Newsletter and again show many photographers are enjoying their travels and getting out and about, in the country at least - where are you city dwellers?.

It is rewarding to hear from the participants of the improvement in quality of their images and their greater understanding of the photography techniques they are now able to use.

Many of the images I regularly show are by photographers who a couple of months ago were struggling to use their cameras. MORE images are always welcomed!!!

Everyone can be involved in our local workshops or at their own community workshops and image sharing – irrespective of your global location.

Please see details on my Workshop webpage, or contact me with your questions.

Enjoy your photography, Norm.
