Hello Members, Your assignment for the month of February is to look for curves and make them work for  you in your composition. We are all surrounded by curves so you don’t have to go far. The trick is to spot them and use them to construct your image. They don’t have to be a […]

July’s Monthly theme – ‘Break the Rules’

We’ve all been taught how we should construct a picture, but this can make our photography predictable and even stagnate.
