  1. i used to work in a coffee shop in sheffield that has now closed down. the proprietor was a British Barista champion (dont ask) he trained me to make coffees with amazing designs in. (not using sprinkle chocolate and a stencil though) its amzing fun to do once you get good at it. ahhh, i miss my student days!
  2. think it ran out of steam a little. I would still be up for organising a session, but a good response would be required to make sure we get sufficient numbers.
  3. hahaha, is this going to become awkward......... ;-)
  4. so how is everyones availability for 20th or 21st of June. Sounds like it could be a good plan.
  5. That sounds great. Would you by any chance be available for any of the dates mentioned?.....
  6. Ive just spoken to sheffield college who might be able to offer us something. I'm waiting for a response on prices etc. but im more than happy if somebody would liek to 'take-over' ;-) a full day session would be interesting actually. would be a great way to learn alot. I should imagine sheffield college wouldn't be able to offer a weekend full day. Im in for the Shef Hallam arrangement. How about mid June time? Give us a month or so to work it all out. Im happy to pay the upfront fee if we get enough committments... Shall we start with, 13th 14th, 20th or 21st of June??? Just to gauge everyones availability and interest?
  7. always worth investigating! Ive contacted sheffield college to see if they offer the oportunity to rent out space... on the topic of whether we would have enough time to do anything. i was thinking something along the lines of having a couple of groups, with a machine each. and during the session, develope 4 or 5 pictures. bouncing ideas off each other. Possibly comparing photo's from each group near the end. A bit of a communal workshop kind of thing....
  8. I would like to suggest organising a 'photoshop' meet, aimed at developing a few of our own photos. Mainly along the lines of taking RAW files and bringing them up to final photo-print stage. This will probably be trickier than organising a normal meet as we would require either somebodies house with a fairly nice computer screen and a bit of space. Or i have thought about the possibility of contacting local colleges/FE's or even studios, to see if it is possible to rent out a classroom and facilities for a couple of hours on an evening. It would be good to gauge interest on this and see if anyone has any bright ideas on possible locations? Rob
  9. First of all, (as most photographers feel compelled to do) id like to throw in my 2cents on the 'is it photography' topic. I believe it definately is photogroahy, but what you are producing might be more acurately descirbed as 'graphics' work. similar to what might be produced for advertisments etc.... which in turn uses photography to produce the product. I also beleive that if it were possible to remove unwanted artifacts from development within a real darkroom, it would have been done, and wouldnt be questioned as a 'genuine part' of the photo development process. (like dodging and burning for example) I beleive that all photographers should strive to 'get it right in-camera', but this will be an eternal debate that will follow us until the end of time. Anywho, on to what i was actually going to write. Following on from the previous decision, I would like to suggest organising a 'photoshop' meet, aimed at developing a few of our own photos. Mainly along the lines of taking RAW files and bringing them up to final photo-print stage. This will probably be trickier than organising a normal meet as we would require either somebodies house with fairly nice computer screen and a bit of space. Or i have thought about the possibility of contacting local colleges/FE to see if it is possible to rent out a classroom and facilities for a couple of hours on an evening. Im also going to start a new thread on this, so please reply on that one. Rob
  10. this is also something id be interested in. I view alot of tutorials, and read articles in magazines, as well as having an understanding of what tools do, but i feel that i need some kind of active feedback with a person/persons who can just add a bit of guidance and advice. A workshop style environment would be perfect.
  11. I know that this has been covered on a few various threds but they have not yielded exactly what i am looking for. (i have found people advertsing what i am after on gumtree, but only in other cities) Im looking to see if anyone out there is providing digital photo processing (photoshop curves/balance/conversions/file types/dodge&burn/cropping etc) tuition? possibly just looking for some extra evening work. I have a fairly good handle with the above software but am struggling to progress to a more advanced level, producing particaulr effects etc. While i know there are college courses, i would most suit a couple of sessions, possibly followed by a little feedback tuition on my own work. Is there anyone out there who is willing to take me up on this offer? i am however only able to offer around £20-30/hour. i understand this is probably below a professionals rate, so if there is anyone who is just pretty advanced on the subject and is looking to earn a little money, this is the kind of market i am looking for. Thanks for reading, Rob
  12. i am unbale to make it unfortunately, due to 'slightly forgotten' birthday commitments. sorry guys. next month though.
  13. hi, im new to the forum, i'd like to come along to the meet on the 28th as ive not been to one before. I assume form the posts that its just a turn-up kind of affair.... Also would anyone possibly be going via broomhill/crosspool area and have a free seat?
