Fast and Furious in Ludlow
I, along with a group of great enthusiasts, participated in a weekend photo workshop, Fast and Furious, in the historic market town of Ludlow. Our tutors were the talented and passionate Paul Hill and Maria Falconer.
We were set various challenges of topics to photograph, given usually only half an hour to take the pictures and little time to process them, hence 'Fast and Furious'. We normally had to present one image from each topic for projection and critique from Paul, Maria and the group.
There was also a group challenge where 5 of us had to think and take a picture to illustrate the premise 'Fast and Furious'. I will not be showing this picture in this blog.
Although we were usually allowed only one photo to present, I am a lousy editor of my own work, and on reflection would probably chosen a different image to show. So I am giving my alternatives as well here.
On the Sunday morning we went to see Paul's exhibition of his early Ludlow photographs and his collection of images entitled 'Corridor of Uncertainty', at the Photo Space Gallery in Ludlow. Paul gave a tremendous talk about his work which will always stay in my mind when I am out with my camera. It is a privilege to attend a session run by such an impassioned photographer.
Here are some of the pictures from the 2 days.
