"There are a few rules in photography that can help to take your photography from nice to wow. One of the first is a basic composition rule "The rule of Thirds". On many modern cameras now you can actually put a grid on screen which makes sticking to the rule of thirds easy. The idea of the rule of thirds is to stop you putting your horizon in the middle of your image & basically cutting your image in half, very often you can end up with two images in the one photograph. Another basic com positional rule is to include foreground interest, which helps to lead you into the image. When I go to create an image I think of myself as telling a story, I take time in com position to see if I am telling the whole story of what is in front of me"

Below are a few more artists who have recently joined us:
“I work in acrylic on canvas. The starting point of my work is landscape, seen, remembered, or imagined, and recreated in varying combinations of these elements. In my painting it is landscape that defines the human spirit. Consequently the dynamics of colour combinations and their potential to convey mood and emotion are an important feature of my work, as is surface pattern and texture. I enjoy the actual experience of placing and shaping paint on canvas, and I hope anyone who looks at my work will share that enjoyment, and celebrate the world we live in."
