Members of Frome Wessex Camera Club enjoyed a fabulous weekend workshop presented to us by Leigh Preston FRPS, EFIAP, MPAGB.
Leigh talked about an approach to photography using 'themes' and a linked series of images, which covered  2 separate Landscape themes - Urban and Wilderness, photojournalism and Travel, environmental photography, and a series of images illustrating an aspect of history and rounded off with Observational and Street photography.  
We would highly recommend if you ever get the opportunity to attend one of his workshops that you go!
