In 2007 I ran my first workshop in a tiny village called Cruzy in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. During the late afternoon I’d get the participants to explore the village entirely on their own with the criteria of photographing their impression of the community, carefully considering each shot and keeping to as few shots as possible

Back at base we’d each select a single image that exemplified our individual impression of the village and discuss if, how and why the image worked, a kind of gentle critique. Naturally I joined in the exercise and this was one of my images from the exercise.

There’s a carefully considered exercise to improve photography under photography tutorial, which can be accessed here. Clicking on the Photography tab will lead to other tutorials…
