  1. I live in the centre or Edinburgh and walk and cycle around many of the streets that no doubt will be used in the workshop. I use X series cameras but am really not into street photography. I like to work with people’s consent and have been doing a series of icebreaker projects (e.g. http://www.hyam.net/blog/archives/2830). I have an idea where I am headed photographically.

    So the workshop isn’t up my street metaphorically (even though it might be physically up my street) but I’m wondering if there is a plan for a social after the workshop. If so I might be able to tag a long for a little while.

    If not – enjoy your time in Edinburgh!


  2. matt6t6 – United Kingdom – I am a Retired Professional photographer and Brand Ambassador. I have always been passionate about photography projects and more so the final image. I retired early due to a Stroke, my stroke has made me see the world in a brand new way and I hope to explore those changes over the coming years. My blog is for my thoughts about photography and for my images. I now shoot a mixture of black and white and colour but used to be known for my black and white images. One life'capture' it.

  3. henni.photo – Mostly Black and White Photography, Mainly Edinburgh and Scotland. henni.photo brings together Lynn Henni who has studied photography and film-making and Paul Henni who has a background as a freelance designer and sculptor. Their interest in urban imagery combined with a lifetime of living in and exploring their home city of Edinburgh brings a unique perspective to this beautiful and multi-faceted place. Our photography is generally in the moment rather than planned although there are some shots and angles to which we return again and again. As for any photographer, light has a significant impact on our work. The light in Edinburgh is special and provides many contrasts as the weather changes, often hour to hour.
