Doorstep Family Portraits – After the Clap for Carers

BBC News “On Thursday evening many of us in the UK grabbed our pots and pans, scooped up the dog, and nervously looked out of the window to make sure our neighbours were doing the same. Then, when the clock struck 20:00 BST, the sound of clapping, cheering and wooden spoons hitting saucepan lids once again filled the street as we celebrated those working on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic.

Here we are after the ‘last clap for carers’

And below are just a few doorstep family portrait photographs of our neighbours who came out to clap on Thursday evenings – some lovely, happy smiley families. Wandering around the crescent and taking your photographs was a joy! 

Each family promised to make a contribution to a charity, so far the Alzheimer’s Society, Crossroads Care, Save the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington and The Rose Theatre in Kingston have all benefitted.

Practice Photography and Take Better Photos

practicing photography skills with Handmade WorkshopsPractice photography with me and Handmade Workshops at The Railway in Teddington.

We’re aiming to get more people taking better pictures, and it’s amazing how much you can learn in 3 hours. It’s intended for enthusiastic mobile phone camera users who want to move on to using a real camera. We cover the basics of what looks good in a picture, and how to get the camera to give us the picture we want! This is our ‘syllabus‘.

Best of all – we get cake! Plus tea or coffee and some time in lovely Bushy Park practicing photography.
