The idea was to visit the National Gallery and select a painting each, and then use aspects of the paintings to inspire our photographs.
Each of us found something different to catch our imagination: subject matter, composition, colour, lighting & theme. We all found it a stimulating and rewarding exercise, certainly to be repeated!
