.....It is my great pleasure to write on behalf of Kingston Camera Club to say a big thank you for your splendid talk on Monday evening
As you know, I think a successful lecture combines three ingredients: quality images, enjoyment and some ideas or learning. You treated us to all three in a highly polished but light heated evening. I am sure you will have been aware of the high level of engagement and interest.
.....I’ve had plenty of time to gather feedback from our members and it’s a resounding thumbs up! We all enjoyed seeing the beautiful and creative images you presented to us. The mix of stories behind the images with the accompanying technical information where appropriate, made for a delightful and stimulating evening.
I’m sure your influence will inspire our members to create more thoughtfully composed and higher quality images of their own in future. I particularly enjoyed seeing your creations which delved a bit deeper into photographic creativity. In making such explorations you showed us that thinking outside the box, and even experimenting with techniques, can reap rewards with often stunning results.
... I have heard nothing but praise for your lecture from our members and feel that you have inspired them for our themed round of Flower Prints.
... I have received a lot of great feedback from both Committee and Members regarding your knowledge and enthusiasm of the subject matter. You inspired a lot of members as lots of submitted competition images over the last two weeks show the "Cherry Style" as we are calling it. The local florist has even asked me to say "thank you”.
....the tips and tricks and practical advice were excellent and your good humoured delivery made for an excellent evenings entertainment. I know you have inspired many members, including me, to try microwaving flowers, searching for light boxes and learning more about adjustment layers. Thanks again.
.....as you hopefully picked uplast night the club much enjoyed your talk and superbly artistic flower photography.
