Street art is a unique and colorful art form and can be found in all kinds of nooks and crannies in cities all over the world. Capturing art in the streets in photographs can be tricky because these urban art pieces are in public spaces, that are busy and usually filled with a decent amount of traffic. Sometimes you include the people and sometimes, you don't.

    This was an enjoyable and useful event. The session was well-structured with a set of challenges for participants to work on. Good feedback was provided on each challenge. I learnt a few very useful things (eg considering contrast, shape and texture for each photo) and gained confidence.

    I had the pleasure of attending a 'street photography at night class' recently, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The tutor's friendly and patient approach made learning a breeze. Claudiu's guidance helped me grasp essential techniques and concepts, enhancing my photography skills significantly. I left the class feeling not only more confident but also inspired to explore and experiment further. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in honing their photography skills.

    A day's photo trip to Valencia (amongst other locations), to explore the contrasts between the 'old' and the 'new' areas of this beautiful Spanish city. I was drawn to this particular composition due to the leading lines and the 'wild' contrasts produced by such a gloriously sunny day. The people on the esplanade helped give a sense of scale to the architecture, although it would have been interesting to have tried a long exposure, using an ND filter. It also screamed out as becoming a pleasing

    I decided to spend a few hours trying to image a pair of kestrels as I had seen them playing in the fields the day before, unfortunately they were nowhere to be seen, but to my suprise I spotted the short eared owl starting to hover and swoop over the grasses so I took this amazing opportunity to photograph this absolutely stunning bird of prey.
