We’re starting today (though I'm 7 hours ahead of you right now, as I'm in Shanghai), so in preparation could I ask you both to introduce yourselves — just a few words to tell us something about yourself and where you are in photography, and what you’re looking to get out of the course.

Do be sure to read my feedback on everyone's assignments, because this may well help you with your own photography by highlighting a particular point. I would also encourage you to comment - in a positive way - on each other's work that inspires you in a particular way.

Please can you show me how how to remove the background or make it white to look like a studio shot

When photographing anything, whether it be a landscape or a still-life, then will be an element of "randomness", which from a visual standpoint makes the image unsatisfactory. The aim of composition is to introduce some measure of clarity to the design

Hi Kirsty, when I shoot fast moving subjects I will always shoot above 1/500 and try to be at 1/1000 if possible. You were correct to shoot in AI servo and try to have the focus point set on the child.

I enjoy Photography as an art form. Garden and plant photography is my favourite genre however I also enjoy wildlife, pets, landscape, sailing and underwater photography. I've just spent the last 5 days photographing 7 gardens in the south of England including Munstead House, Kew, West Green, Mottisfont, Hilliers, Wisley and Hinton Ampner.

I have done some documentary photography before, but I’m looking to improve my skills to help me secure more international work

I’m your tutor for this course and I’m really looking forward to looking at your photos and getting to know you as the course progresses. Please can you introduce yourselves to the group (as Lynsey has done below) and tell me a little more about yourselves and why you’ve chosen to do this course. If you have a website, include a link, so I can take a look at your work.

Ellen Sircom critiqued an assignment on 'Photography Foundation Course '
Yesterday
Yes, I agree that I think I took a bit of a soft option with the first image. If I'd had time (always a good excuse), I'd have found something less structured to work with. I'm going to press at the moment, so 18 hour days are pretty commonplace and this was my frantic photo session.

Have you thought about the light around the far corner? This needs much more attention than you have given it. Remember what we talked about in lesson 2.

Lemon slice. The techniques you used to light the lemon slice are interesting. Image 2 is far and away the better of the two shots. As well as showing the colourful skin, it has also reduced the tonality of the harsh silhouetted pip sections. The extra highlights have not only added depth, but also help to convey how the flesh is composed of many juice-filled vesicles.

I am a Texan living in Mexico for many years now. An interest in photography came late in life to me. I am still not sure how a sudden inspiration turned into an all consuming and expensive hobby. There is always just one more thing that I HAVE to have. Street Photography has become a large part of my hobby simply because my small group does mostly that.

This is a much more successful image – with simple graphic elements and no “watering down” of the relationship between blue and yellow. Well done. If I was being really picky I would once again look to the edges. You didn’t quite get the bottom of the “C” in the picture and the bright part of the building?
